    What's your favorite rifle

    So I plan on getting a Remington 700 in either .223 or 30-06. Does anybody have any insight on this rife or anything comparable. I mainly want it for possibly competitive target shooting or future S.W.A.T. career. So what's your guys favorite rifle and gun caliber.

    Go with a 308. That is probably what swat uses as well as competative shooters

    I have a savage 10fp in .223 that I like more than my buddies 700. The Remington has more aftermarket behind it though. If I was to do it over I'd go .308 so i can really reach out also since I have an AR for under 300m

    SWAT guys use both a .223 and a .308. The caliber is strictly dependent on your use for the weapon. Competition shooting involves all sorts of weapons and calibers so don't get stuck on one thing. The easiest weapons to use for competition are military, service-type weapons that have no alterations done to them. If you have questions let me know. This is a big topic so please be specific.

    .308 caliber rifles are by far my favorite but other than that I normaly use a .270 for hunting puposes. I would give almost anything to be able to be a competition shooter but 2 jobs limit my time :/ Stoeger shotgun, ruger 9mm, and a WW2 Springfield .30-06 with the original packing grease still in it (from my grandfather to my dad to me) are my other favs. I know the springfield needs cleaning cause I bet that grease has turned hard after so many years but just a family thing that I want to keep it in its current condition. Anyway I think you would be totally happy with the .308's performance and capabiliites
