I own a win 100, but have a chance to buy a remy 770 30-06. guy is hard up for money , so he says $175 . Should I do it ? If I have a semi-auto 308, do I need a cheap bolt 30-06 ? HELP ! ! ! :confused:

Adding a different caliber to your stable should be avoided unless there is a real need for the caliber, which doesn't sound like there is.

Those were for sale at Big5 a few weeks ago for $299 with a Bushnell scope... both of which I'm sure are made in China. Though surprisingly, a guy at the range had one and I watched him shoot a 3-shot sub MOA group, right after zeroing for the first time with some cheap soft point hunting ammo... truly amazing!

Rem 770 is crap - but that's a good price . . However you do get what you pay for.

Is the winchester 100 .308 a better gun? Is the 30-06 a better caliber? Which to keep and which to sell/trade? Which one would be more accurate/reliable? Sorry so many ??? HELP!

30-06 is more versatile if your really into hunting. You can load for big or small game. 308 is accurate as you need it to be and a bit cheaper than 06. Personally I would go with the Winchester.

I have a Model 100 that was passed down from my grandfather. This gun has hunted in the hands of 3 generations in my famill, and is still driving tacks. Assuming you had the necessary work done after the July 1990 firing pin recall, I hold it in much higher esteem than the remington 770. Keep the Winnie!
