I'm just sort of curious what made you decide on these two choices in those calibers? Personally - I'd probably look at a Remington 700 in .25-06, .270 Win, or even .30-06. All three of those give up very little in trajectory and deer killing power at 300y to a .300 Win Mag but will do so with a lot less muzzle blast and recoil.

I really like the Ruger #1, but most of my serious hunting rigs are bolt actions with McMillan stocks and ceramic finishes. I don't really have much nice to say about Browning rifles.
