I have been reducing some of my inventory of late and am a little perplexed.
I have a pair of Remington 700 ADL's, 1 in 30-06 and 1 in 243. These Remingtons are the synthetic/matte finish version and are around 10 years old.
I also have a pair of Winchester model 70's (push feed) in the same calibers. The Winny 06 is also the newer variety with factory synthetic stock and blind magazine. The 243 is mid 70's issue sporter and is hardly used (B&C stock).
The purpose these guns will serve is to tag along on hunts as back ups in case someone in the group had a breakage issue. I've also had occasion to loan out a gun to someone going out west on a one time hunt etc (usually my sons college buddies)!
With function/reliability being the main focus, which pair should I keep, the Remingtons or the Winchesters?
