Fit and feel are the most importantconsiderations imho whenselecting a firearm, so I suggest you need to handle them both and see what you like best.

I prefer the 700 personally because of:
Fit/feel
Trigger and adjustability
Non Mauser action
Aftermarket products more plentiful for 700vs M77

Though what I or others think in reality means squat if you don't agree. Both are good rifles and have legions of supporters. You need to choose which group yo join. I am willing to bet after some touch time you will find favor in one over the other.

Good Luck

They chamber the .280 in both the ruger and remington rifles i mentioned.This is the first year they made it in the LSS mountain rifle.I have one in the blued,wood model 700 mountain rifle but i want an all weather gun.

I've been shooting my Remington 700 mountain rifle in 280 for more than 25 years now... Of course Rem. wasn't making them back then, so i had to buy a new 700, gut it, and make my own...

The new 700 mountain rifle i looked at a few weeks ago, looked to be well made, and a very nice rifle... I've always liked 700's better than Ruger 77's, and i've also found the700'sto be more accurate too...

Buy what YOU like best!

I like the looks of the Remington '07 anniversary model in black laminate. If you're not on a strict budget I've been looking at Cooper of Montana's Model 52. They have it in .280 and I believe you can get it in the Jackson Hunter which is a synthetic ss set-up with a 3 shot 1/2 moa guarantee (granted a handload but still...). Suggested MSRP is around $1500.

I have shot a ruger 77 for 25 years in several calibers I like the mauser actions and the new ones are comming with adjustable triggers. I like the three position safety compaired to Remington's two the are both positioned in the sme area also. I would give the ruger a good look if you can find one in your caliber.

I am a Ruger fan also.I think that the M77 is as good as any rifle in its class.
