Default which one?

so im planning on asking for a new rifle for white tailed deer. i have it narrowed down to 3. Ruger M77 with walnut stock and blued barrel in 7mm Rem. Mag.. then a Remington 700 synthetic w/ blued barrel in .270. and lastly Mossberg ATR in .270.

Currently i have a Remington 700 in 25-06 with the heavy varmint barrel. This is a very accurate gun but it is just a load for me to carry walkin up the mountains. Especially when i get one it just is a B***h to carry out. I also Have the currently discontinued Mossberg SSI-One in 30-06 which is the single shot. i know it would be a great rifle but the trigger is so sticky. Now i am looking for something new for my arsenal and just something to get and have fun with for christmas...i would like to hear a few opinions. or maybe some other reccomendations.

rem 700 w/syn. stock chambered in the .270 sounds nice.
question, how do you like your 25-06 on deer?
good luck shopping

2K6, have you checked the Savage Combos at Wal-Mart?
I would stick with the .270, JMO!

I have a Remington 700 in a 270 that I really like. It's not to heavy but does have alittle kick to it. Nice gun though.

7MM RM! Or if you want a 7MM "magnum," thats not a magnum, look at the .280 Remington. Or since you have a .25 caliber, go up to one of the .30 calibers, for a little variety! Choice, choice, choices! Good luck!

hey fellas,
thanks for the responses ummm i actually do have a 30-06 which is my Mossberg SSI-one (single shot) the trigger needs to be loosend a tad bit. btw i LOoooovvvvveee my 25-06 it is so great to shoot and so accurate. i love it. i was looking for something similar with a little more size and maybe more punch to it...i havent seen many guns around here atleast in the.280 remington...and i dont really know much about Savage...if someone could give me avice there are plenty of them which open my horizons. i actually just saw a very nice, not to expensive Weatherby Vanguard in 30-06 i think...it was beautifull...im still looking for some more information about now all 5 (Remington 700,Ruger M77 in 7mm rem. mag,savage,Weatherby in 30-06, or the .280) i love guns and this is what i want...

First off welcome to the boards! IMHO I would step up to like a .300 mag or something similar.
