Guns Like firearms themselves, there's a wide variety of opinions on what's the best gun.

Tikki T3 Lite vs. Ruger M77 Hawkeye vs. Browning X-Bolt

Any of these rifles can be fine tuned to be plenty accurate for hunting, pick the one that feels right to you...Shoulder them and see how the LOP is, how they balance, how you like the position of the safety, etc...

It's common for us shooters that are picky to float barrels, add pressure, piller bed, adjust, hone or replace triggers or even replace the stock...These are all basic jobs that any good shooter should be able to do in the off season...

Tikka T3 is my choice without a doubt. "Tikka" in Finnish means "woodpecker" as in hitting the same hole over and over. 1 MOA out of the box guarantee for the Tikka speaks for itself.

The Ruger or Browning IMO. I like the look of a Tikka but 20 years from now, the Browning or Ruger will be doing it's job very well, the Tikka may also, but the Ruger and Browning are guns you'll own for your lifetime... Just my opinion... I really like the x-bolt but the M77 Mark II is my go to in .270 Win.
