Default Ruger V. Remington

So, as some of you may know I have been looking for a new hunting rifle. I finally decided, (I think) on .270. However, the Remington .270 is $160 or so more than the Ruger. I couldn't find anyone to tell me why. Could it be just the remington name? What gives? And is it worth the extra $160?

Either are good rifles. I think the Ruger makes a slightly better rifle though. Also have you thought about Tikka? I just got a T3 Stainless Lite for $608.

Based on what?

Personally I think that Remington's rifles blow Ruger's totally out of the water. The fit, finish, and accuracy are far and away better on Rems. If you get a good shooting Ruger, you probably got the 1 in 10 gun. About one in ten will be a real nailer. One in ten will also be a total dog. The other 8 will all shoot sub 2" groups. Just my experience, and I've only been selling, fixing and dealing professionally in guns for 7 years now. Been shooting a lot longer.

I find the action on the Ruger to be pretty sloppy compared to the Remington. Rugers are less in price and do come with a set or rings being a plus but I find Remington rifles a little better in quality. As for accuracy I can’t comment on my Ruger because I haven’t shot it yet , however my brother has never complained about his Ruger...

I've own 3 Rugers M-77 mk II,300 win mag , 30-06 , and the most recent addition a .270. All of myrifles are stock out the box and all good shooters, they are not match rifles . Ruger actions are control feed vs push feed on the Rems and I tend to favor Rem triggers , but thats just personel preference.

I also have several Rems with my newest being a CDL in 30-06 that I bought a few months ago they too are good shooters .
Overall you wont go wrong with either .

Decisions decissions .....

well i think both shoot bothand see if you can andit might be more because it could be a newer model or it has more acceserys or just because it says rem. on it 90 of allguns your going to pay 30% for that name i had a marlin 3030 done just as good as the win but the win. said win on it so it was like 100 bucks more

I'dgo Ruger. Sturdy and dependable. Built tough. There's a reason the Mauser-style action has been *the* action for the last 100+ years.

Rugershave a reputation as having bad triggers, but the 'bad' ones aren't all THAT bad and the newer ones have been decent, even good. Either way, it's a cheap ($50 +/-) easy fix, so it's hardle even a knock against them anyway.

Fit and finish? Look for yourself. I find it laughable that anyone would say Rugers take a backseat in this area to a company that produces the 710.

Accuracy? I've had zero problems. None. Either the accuracy 'issues' that others have alluded to areexaggerated or I've been *really* lucky and just happen to get 'shooters' when I get a Ruger.

And yes, I realize it's just a rimfire, but when I shoot a Remington 597, I don't exactly get a warm fuzzy feeling that instills confidence in me that I'm dealing with a company who really cares about quality from top to bottom.

If you want a controlled feed rifle, buy a CZ.
If you want a push feed, get a Tikka.
