Both the Ruger and the Remington are great rifles. My personal preference lies in two different directions. The Remington is more "round feeling" when you carry it. The Ruger feels more squareish in my hands. This is nit picking. Its about like carrying a Winchester model 94 or a Marlin 336. They are both great guns,but "feel" different in the hand. If you like a long claw extractor,choose the model 77. If you don't care and want a more dainty rifle feel,pick the model 700. Either way,you will not be disapointed.
