rem 700 in 30-06 only because of the variety of bullets and bullet weight you can choose from

Depends for me. If I'm in an urban setting AR-15. You may need to get alot of lead out fast or just need more then 5 rounds. If I am in the woods and am not needing to move fast and go in houses and stuff rem 700 in .308 or 6.8 SPC

Right now I have a winchester model 70 in 30-06 so next on my list is a PTR-91 or AR-15 then a shotgun

The rem 700 can put food on the table easier than the ar-15.

Remington 700 in 30-06 or better yet you can buy 2 Remington 30-06 for the price of one AR-15.

I picked the 700 because there are already 3 AR's in the house... and I've been planning on buying a LR bolt gun, anyway.

So maybe my answer was biased.

If I didn't have either firearms - I'd go with the AR.

I agree with the bolt gun over the ar but I am not 100% sold that it must be a remington 700. I have a tikka in 308 that is my rifle of choice. but that is just my $.02

All depends on what you want it to do for you. For large fuzzy quadrupeds, I’d rather have the Remington. For anything else I’ll take an AR.

Well in a bad situation if the bad guy sees you with a AR-15 he might just crap his pants and run away.

You just blowing money on a gun here, or do you actually have a purpose in mind for the purchase? Depending upon what you want to do....these are two VERY different weapons.

I'd rather have an AK and a Savage 110 in 30-06 than a Remington 700 and an AR.

I gotta go with the Rem 700 BDL in .30-06. But, I'm biased because it has been my hunting buddy for many years, and has put lots of meat in my freezer and elk steaks on my table. I have an AR, too, which would be better for SHTF stuff in many ways, but if I had to choose just one, it would be my 700 BDL.
