Having owned several of each, all were great shooters. There are always a few rifes that do not shoot as well as others. I have owned the M-700's longer than the others and one dates to 1966. I have not had any trouble with any of them so far.
I pick the Remington 700, but nothing wrong with the other two.
Back when the 77 had a tang safety I feel they were downright dangerous. That safety was always slipping off. Now that has been fixed I would say that although they are not the same you can't go wrong with either. My personal favorite is the Win M70 as made by Kimber.
I have a ruger M77 and love it. It is a reliable tough gun, but the others are also great.
i've had both the winchester 70 and rem 700's. I think the remingtons have an accuracy edge, i've never had trouble getting .5 inch groups with any remington 700 i've ever owned or shot. the model 70...its hard to get minute of angle.
I replaced my M77 25-06 with a Remington 700CDL
I've owned all three and give the edge to the Remington 700.
I have more Rugers than anythign else.
I have had good luck with all three. However, it seems that gunsmiths who specialize in turning out super accurate rifles seem to prefer the Remington actions, when these are the three choices.
The new Winchesters are giving everything a run for their money.
i prefer the remington 700, but also own ruger's and winchester's
i like the win m70's
I have always loved the pre-64 M70's and the new ones sure look good. I will be watching them. I have to say though that the Rem 700 is a top choice simply because of the wide availabiilty of aftermarket parts and supplies. They are pretty good out of the box and you can make them as accurate as you want. There are a wide variety of styles from which to choose.
the 700 rem.
They are all great guns but i would choose the Remington m700 they have been a favorite for many years and they are offered in many calibers and styles. i love how mine handles and shoots they arent the most accurate factory rifles but they are affordable. iv shot 9 deer with mine in 2 years (all legal) and i will not use anything else.
I choose the Remington m700 and the other two are great too!!!!!!!
I'm w/ dakotaman on my love of pre-64 Mod. 70's. Mine in .270 is 'death in it's own self' as Petzel would say. My .243 in Ruger M77 has been and excellent backup/loaner/youth gun for a decade now. Only had 1 700, and it was a beaut. My next gun will probably be a Savage though, if and when I can ever afford a new gun.
Remington 700 is my first choice but they are pretty evenly matched
