I love my browning a-bolt. I couldn't hit the broad side of a barn with my ruger I had, I missed bull after bull. Next year took it to the bountiful gun range and the best they could in their gun sighting stand was at a 150 yards was an 8 in group (they think the barrel had a problem). Sold the gun and bought my browning, now I have taken 4 bulls in the past 6 years since the switch.

I've got a Ruger M77 Hawkeye and a Weatherby Vanguard S2. Both are quality rifles and very accurate. They both shoot 1/2" groups at 100yds. If I were to purchase another rifle it would likely be a Weatherby.

I had the same issue with used <--(Of course) Howa 1500. I'd heard they were awesome guns. I liked everything about it except the fact that I could shoot at the ground and never hit it. I went through 3 good scopes before we finally decided there was some fouling in the barrel. Traded it in on a Ruger, which ironically enough, is extremely accurate.

I bought a Tikka T3 in 7 mm Mag with a Leopold Vari-X III last year and I love it. I shot a mule deer in Wyoming at 160 yards with it. I was very impressed with the consistent groups I shot with it at 100, 200, and 300 yards at the range. There are prettier and more famous name brands out there, but I don't think you can go wrong with the Tikka T3.

There is something wrong here if you are considering a Remington 770 and a custom rifle at the same time. How much do you want to spend. You need to figure it out. If you are on a beer budget, get a Remington 700. If you you are on a champagne budget get a custom rifle. You probably can't shoot any better than what a Remington 700 can do, but you may want a custom rifle anyhow. The 770 is not a cheaper version of the 700. The 700 SPS is the cheaper version of the 700. The 770 is an imported rifle not made by Remington but sold by Remington with Remington's name on it.
