2)Remington Model 700 stainless 300 win
3)Tika t3 lite stainless 300 win

I have the .300 Win Mag in the Remington 700 BDL SS, I got it over 12 yrs ago. I got for a Canada whitetail hunt that we never went on, I shot it a few times

What is your budget? I would also recommend looking at Ruger Hawkeyes.

Check out the Ruger 77. If you are into single shots, the ruger #1's are excellent as well.

Want it to be accurate? Try looking into a Savage. They shoot about as straight as anything out there.

Not a .300 Winchester, but I have a 7 mm Rem mag and a .375 Rem Ultra mag, both are stainless Rem 700s, and I have a .300 Weatherby in a Vanguard. All three of these rifles will shoot 3 shot moa groups, and I've used each of them on at least one African hunt plus other international and western US hunts.

i would choose the remington i love the look of the 700s and also love the stainless look very durable and imo it stays looking good longer than blued guns..if i were to pick a 2 it would be the tika t3 i have never owned one but i have heard great things..if stainless is you thing if i am not wrong here i think the tika comes in senthetic/stainless but you should check it out first as i dont know for sure i just think i saw one on cabelas site

I have a Rem Model 700 in .300 RUM

I would say stick with a Rem 700, Ruger M77, or Wichester Model 70. All safe bets.

What are you wanting out of the rifle? Hunting, targets, what?

How have you slimmed it down to those 3 rifles? What criteria did you use?
