    I'm looking to get a high powered rifle in a .308. I have my mind set on either a Remington 700 ADL with a synthetic stock or a Thompson/centure venture.Im sort of a beginner with high powered rifles but i still want a good one.Which one will work the best or is more accurate?

    Have you looked at any Savage's? Now those are some accurate rifles. I've heard from a few people that Remingtons quality has been poor lately. Marlins rifles are definitely worth a look as well. Just my opinion.

    I have looked at them however im lookin for a rifle a little more common or used. I love savages but i like them more as a small caliber rifle. Plus i have a habit of taking my guns apart and putting them back together every month or so to completely clean them and i dont know if i could put together an accutrigger. Im leaning towards the 700 but the downside is aftermarket parts are expensive.

    I see...but why do you need to take the trigger apart?

    I can speak for the 700 ADL, personally. My wife owns one in .270 Win. and it's a good rifle, accurate, well built, and has a good trigger. If I had a chance to buy another, I would do it. Not sure if this has been mentioned yet, but the weatherby vanguard is another one I own that i even prefer over the 700 ADL.

    Honestly, any of the rifles mentioned will get the job done, you need to handle each of them and decide which one YOU like best.

    Probably because the pre-2004 Remmy 700's have a trigger issue...

    Better off with a Marlin XL-7, which has no issues, just dead nuts precise ;)

    personaly, i think the one of the issues with the triggers was probaly people adjusting them to low

    Speaking of the Marlin XL7..I think I sold my friend on one of those XL7S rifles. They look down right sexy.

    Why would you be taking a bolt gun out of the stock to clean it?
