I like mine. I also have a Winchester Model 70 and I like the Remington better. Two completely different guns, though. Mine is a 700 Mountain Rifle in .280 Rem. My Model 70 is a Stainless Classic in .338 Win Mag. You might consider it a Ford vs. Chevy thing. I own one of each of those, also. I prefer the Chevy (GMC). But the Ford is a Bronco ...so it's not a fair comparison, either. "Better idea" my azz. Sorry, I got off the subject. My 700 doesn't have a detachable magazine and I'm fine with it. They're both serviceable rifles.

all depends which kind of hunting you perfer? if you do most of your hunting from a vechile the detachable mags are great as you can keep one loaded and just shove it in the rifle when you see your game

I don't think most of the 700's have detachable mags, but maybe I'm mistaken. In my opinion they're the best rifles in thy're price range by far. They're accurate. The action is dependable. The trigger can be adjusted by anyone with half a brain. They handle well and feed well. You won't find higher quality in a bolt unless you start adding some zeros to the price. Did I mention the 700 vls is probably one of the best danged looking rifles I've ever seen.

I think the Remington 700 has a very good reputation,well respected.
I actually purchased an new 700 in Rem. 8mm mag.,and a Winchester model 70 in .338 mag. at the same time,I couldn't decide. After a year I sold the 700 and kept the Model 70,only because I liked the .338 calibre more.
The stock cracked on the 700 after 5-10 boxes of shells and the local delear wouldn't repair it on warranty because I did not purchase the gun from him.Now I'm sure Remington would have gone good for it,just a sleazy dealer...Some of my friends who like to build custom guns prefer to start with a Rem. 700.

I have the 700 Mtn. rifle in .270 with the detachable clip. It's my go to gun for all my hunting around here

I've had a Rem 700 BDL LH in 270 for almost 30 years and I love it. The only thing I did to it was some glass bedding( and that should be done with the Weatherbys, Tikka, etc too).
Now synthetic stocks are something i really shouldn't have an opinion on( I DON'T LIKE EM) but if the climate you hunt in requires so, go for it.

If I could have any hunting rifle I wanted it'd be a Remington 700 XCR in .280 Remington.
Unfortunately they do not make the XCR in .280 Remington as far as I know.
I am hoping to find enough money laying around somewhere to get a Remington 700 mountain rifle in .280 remington before the season starts this year (running out of time).
