I've worked on many different rifles, either adjusting triggers, doing bedding, etc. and fired lots of different brands and models.
My favorite moderately-priced rifles are, in order: Rem 700, Tikka 595, Winchester 70, and Weatherby Vanguard. The Tikka T-3 is also nice, but not as nice as the 595 was.
The Vanguard would move up a bit if it wasn't so heavy and seemingly bulky for a carry rifle.
The Win. 70 trigger is just OK; not as nice as the Remingtons and Tikka that I have.
People are like rifles. Some are tried and true, having great eyes, personality, and fun to be with. Others never seem to hit the mark with you. Still others go off half-cocked. Still, it's nice to know most of them.
