I hunt only with a 700, it will never fail you. I have crawled through mud, water and sludge to get close to deer for a shot and my 700 has never rusted or failed me in any way.

Id stick with the Remington 700 because it is tried and true. I like the old A Bolt Better than the X Bolt.

I've never used the Browning, but I love my old Remington 700 7mm Rem mag.

go with remington, unless you just want something different. Remmy's are as accurate as they come, and will ne'er let you down.

I seriously looked at both the X-bolt and 700 about a year ago. The x-bolt at the time only had 2 versions available. To me the x-bolt felt better. Both shot find, I just preferred the X over the 700. With that said, I eventually bought a weatherby vanguard sub-moa. The monte carlo and think pachmire pad made the recoil manageable in the .338.

Just about anyone including me loves 700s, and for good reason. I will say that for the money you pay for the same old M700 these days, you might as well spring for the Browning.

I have never the browning X-bolt, but I, like so many others, love my Remington 700. What model 700 are you looking at?

I'm a green guy at heart too, but I'll put one in for the X-bolt. I got the first one in town here last spring. It's been fantastic so far. I like the shorter bolt lift, and it doesn't seem do bind up as easily as the 700's I've come across (though neither is as slick as a Sako). It's very accurate, the trigger is better than any factory 700 unit and it feeds those stubborn WSM's without a hitch. The only drawback is the lack of any aftermarket goodies which are so popular with the 700's. If you want to tinker, get the 700. You'll be happy whichever way you go, really. We're splitting hairs here.
