  • browning x-bolt hunter in 30-06 vs winchester model 70 feather weight 30-06 it will be used mainly as a coyote gun in the winte

    browning x-bolt hunter in 30-06 vs winchester model 70 feather weight 30-06 it will be used mainly as a coyote gun in the winter but will also be used as a deer gun if one of my freinds brings me up to there cabin some time. it will also be used if i ever go elk hunting or other big game hunts as i grow older. i know many of you will say no get the synthetic stock but evenn the i hunt coyotes in the snowy winters of mn i just love the look of wood and no i am not really worrying about the furs on coyotes. i just want a great shooter out of the box with no modifications. i also want it to be very reliable. also which one will be better for handiling size. i like the sleek looks of the x-bolt and the 60 degree bolt lift but i like the claw extracter on the m70. i have heard that the browning is more accurate but the winchester is more reliable because of controlled feed. i also like that the m70 says MADE IN THE U.S.A. on the barrel while the browning says MADE IN JAPAN of the barrel. i just want an accurate reliable gun tthat is the best all around gun.

    -If they are priced about the same grab the Model 70. It is arguable the most proven bolt action hunting rifle there is. I have two Model 70's but they are both the super grade model(I don't think there is much of a functional difference between the super grade/featherweight) and I love them. Neither are in .30-06 though(7mm Mag and .375).
    -If the Browning is a much better price grab it. They are both reliable/accurate.

      Dude, don't pass up a Browning just because it has made in Japan on it. They are legendary for workmanship,quality, and accuracy.There are many articles describing the pros and cons of push feed vs controled feed. Functionally there really is no difference. They both will feed reliablby. Personally I have a Savage 116 FCSS. It has push feed and will chamber a round in any position that you can come up with. I suggest that you shoot both if you can and see which one feels the best. The Savage felt best to me and that plus its reputation for accuracy and cost, when I bought it I had five kids in college. I have had a made in Japan Browning .22 for 42 years and I wouldn't trade it for any other .22.

        I doubt there's really much difference in quality between them, I would buy whichever one you can get a better deal on.
        I would also second what WSU said about Browning, I know we all want to support "made in the USA", but don't assume something's poorer quality just because it's not - the Browning Auto-5 shotgun was made in the Netherlands, and it is one of the highest-regarded guns ever produced.

          ok I think im gonna go with the browning just because my dad has an a bolt and my local gun dealer has x-bolts on hand in his store in stead of shipping them in which would probably cost more.
