This is more of spin off of BigWes50 topic about buying a .300 wsm. Then a brands war. I know theres alot of die hard Remington shooters on here, as well as Browning shooters.

I just wanted to hear what you liked and disliked about your remington or browning. First let me say I've owned quite a few of each brands and like different things about each.

I have to honestly say out of all the factory remingtons and brownings I've owned and shot over the years. As a whole the brownings fit, finish, and the way they shot was better than the remingtons.

I have a Browning A-bolt Micro. The thing that I hate about it is it's so Boring.....Boringly accurate and consistant each and every time I take it out. I never get any surprises with this rifle. It's a completely factory rifle with no additions or changes.

I have found that a lot of Remington owners have to or feel the need to make additions to their rifles for them to feel satisfied with their rifle. Then again, there is nothing wrong with customizing your rifle to your liking.

when we were looking for my son's 7mm-08, we ended up buying a savage. compared side to side with the A-bolt browning, the wood to metal fit was much better and the bolt was much smoother and the savage was $200 less. browning is the ONLY brand of rifle i do not own and the only one they make that i would consider is the BAR.

Browning A-bolt- 60 degree bolt throw,drop down hinge floor attached magazine,handleing and accuracy.Prefer the Stalkers to all others.Only dislike is the plam swell in the A-bolt 2 stalkers stocks.BTW They can keep that X-bolt from the photos I've seen in the '08 catalog.

Rem- The only one worth a hoot is the CDL-or CDL SF even then I still like the A-bolt a whole lot better.

Own both and like both. My first love is a Browning Stainless Stalker in .300WSM. She goes first whenever I hunt a new species. My newest love is a Rem 700 7MM STW. She killed an Antelope at 550 yards last August.

I have never seen a Browning that would not shoot well, most were exceptional. I cant really say that for a Remmy, although most will shoot OK, and if it doesn't they are the easiest to make shoot well.

My Abolt will shoot .5 all day long, however, I have never been able to get any better than that. Pros- I love the fit, finish, and feel, I like the accuracy of Abolts. Cons-like I said I have never been able to get it any better than .5. Take a 700 though, they seem to me to be not as consistent shooters from rifle to rifle BUT when I find one like, it will be in the .2's or .3's and those are the only rifles I dont trade off or sell. Any 700 that wont under .3 gets traded for another one, I have went through about 6 others before getting the 3 Remmy's I have now that shoot so well.

I like them both:
Browning; smoother action and better fit and finish
Remy : the trigger, style and US made
