Okay fellas, I need to get 2 rifles, both bolt-actions. One for varmits and one for elk/ deer. I would like input as to which one: Win mdl 70 (pre or post '64) or Rem 700. Calibers for varmits? Optics?

I am looking at the Remington website and raleeylike the Ballistics of the 6mm for varmits and even deer at close range. Any feedback on heavy barrels/ fluting? How about the caliber itself? :sniper:
I hunt mule bucks with my Remington Model 700 Custom Deluxe 6MM and I hunt 3 months out of the year and I've dropped bucks at 240yds., 288yds. and at 300+ yards with my 6MM. The 6MM is a excellent caliber for deer.
If it was me I get a 6MM Remington. and a .280 Remington. As far as which company Remington and Winchester are both good companies
