Vanguard 2, or even the original vanguard over Remington. True there are way more gizmos and upgrades for the 700, but out of the box the vanguard is just better.

Let your kid pick them up and decide. I really doubt one is better than the other. Don't care for Asian rifles myself though. mtmuley

Either one is fine. I prefer the Vanguard stock trigger. The Vanguard will be heavier, though. I own/have owned both.

Never owned a Remington 700 but have several model 70,s
also have a new Vanguard S2 in 270 winchester. The Vanguard is
a little lighter than all 3 model 70,s. Not as light as a Ruger
M77 in 270 WSM. But it,s the most accurate of the 5. Also
it has the best factory trigger of the 5. I like the 6 round
magazine. Need all the shells I can get. That extractor throws
shells farther than rest. Recoil is very manageable.

I own a Vanguard S2 in 257wthby and a Rem 700 in 243. Even taking the calibers out of the equation, if one of them had to go tomorrow it would be the 700. The Vanguard is more accurate, has a better trigger, and overall I feel more confident in my abilities when I'm shooting it.

As Craig Boddington wrote on the Weatherby Vanguard being just another Howa..Not...

Weatherby Vanguards may use Howa actions, but the rifles are built to Weatherby specs. Chamberings are not the same, barrels are not the same, stocks are not the same

I sure love mine and if I had the bucks,I would buy another one in 338 Win Mag.

+1 vanguard though my experience has been with older vanguards. In our area sportsmans warehouse had them going for $389 and I think you could spend 2x as much and not get a much better rifle.

It seems that every time in recent years I have bought a Remington there has been a problem. The last 2 I bought the primers cratered from the firing pin hole being to big in the bolt.I would like to say Remington but I can't. I would buy a Vanguard.

The primer cratering thing is something to do with a new bolt face design...its not the problem it appears to be...that being said though, we got a letter from Remington ( at the shop I work part-time in..) explaining it because so many people had noticed what you saw...including myself...looks for all the world like a sign of excess pressure, when all it is is a sign of excess remington engineeering.... wink
