I like Vanguards also, but they are noticeably heavier than Remington 700s and comparable Savage rifles.
Because I've had 700s for so many years and like the way the stocks fit me, I'll continue to buy them, but am impressed with Tikka T3-Lites for carrying and ergonomics. They've gone up in price in the past few years, however.
