Default Which one

Given the option of a Ruger 77-50 or Remington 700ML which of the two would you go with. The Ruger is NIB and the Rem is used but excellent condition.

The Rem has far more upgrade options and a better trigger out of the box.

The Ruger has actual locking lugs on the bolt.

Badger Ridge Industries sells a very good 209 primer system for both rifles

Because of after market options and parts availability I would go with the rem.
