People always do this when there is usually a quick easy answer:Depends on what you are hunting, type of terrain (brush or open area) and if you want bolt or semi. Is the $600 including optics or just the rifle if just the rifle that is more than enough for a very good item.

Go to BI MART buy one of the Savage package deals throw the scope away. Go to Boyds and buy which ever laminated stock you like for under $125.00 and fit the two together slam that Nikon on the top and for under $600.00 you can have a 30-06 that has the ability to out shoot 90% of the people that own it.
SAVAGE is plain simple and accurate right out the box,.
The Rem auto loaders plus the 7600 / 760 pumps are great guns and always seem less expensive than the 700. Tons of them out there (just look at gunbroker). But they do not hold their value as well as 700.for a accurate rifle had a couple rem 7400 and 742 in 3006 there both semi autos there not very good for long range shooting my friend had a bar in 7mm in cal and it was not that great ether get a bolt
Probably because they don't always feed properly? Just what I have heard from gunshow folks.The Rem auto loaders plus the 7600 / 760 pumps are great guns and always seem less expensive than the 700. Tons of them out there (just look at gunbroker). But they do not hold their value as well as 700.
Smart choice with 30-06. Most versatile caliber around. The old timer is not as sexy as the newer ones, but its hard to beat.
