Thinking about my next rifle purchase, haven't decided but I like the prices of the Tikka T3 Lite and the Weatherby Vanguard.

Which would you go for?

Of course, I may just have to stick to my favorite, the Remington 700.... Lol

I'm somewhat partial to the Weatherby Mark V. My original primary reason for "liking" Mark V's was their shorter bolt lift. Not sure how many other makes are now using this, but believe Weatherby had the original patent.

You may have a new favorite with the Tikka. I have one in 260 Rem. It's my 2nd favorite rifle next to a semi-custom M70.

Well considering finding a new 700 anytime soon may be a challenge, I say Tikka hands down. I have owned 5 of them and they all shot really well and shot many types of ammo really well. The 700's sure do offer a lot of customization but if you buy a Tikka and put a Bell and Carlson stock on it, you would have to spend a BUNCH more money to get a better rifle. JMO

It'll be a cold day in the Congo before I give Remington another dollar.

I'd probaly choose Tikka just because of all the awesome reviews I've heard on them. I love my savages but I'll probably buy a T3 for my next rifle.
