I would pick the Winchester without hesitation. However it would not be the Featherweight for me. I would pick the Model 70 Extreme Weather.

I would pick the model 70 in a heartbeat. The old model 70s were good, but the new ones seem to be even better. The model 700 action being so strong and accurate arguement doesnt hold water when we are talking production guns used for hunting. Sure, if you go spend a few grand on a model 700 action, you may see an edge over the model 70 in accuracy, but thats not what we are talking about. Winchester wins the reliable feeding and extraction award for a hunting rifle, and probably has alot better barrels on their guns now then Remington ever has.
Now Remington makes a decent rifle. I still dont care for their safety, or the price they are asking for their guns, but its decent enough to hunt with. For the same price you can get the model 70, and all but assured greater accuracy out of the box right now.

I agree in part....I hate those flutes though, either flute or don't flute, those things look terrible.

I'm considering replacing the wood stock with something nice in synthetic form. Mcmillian edge maybe, or bell and carlson

The Extreme Weather already comes with the highest end Bell and Carlson Stock.

I would also choose the M70. In my opinion not even a fair comparison.
