Question about new Winchester model 70.

I'm thinking of buying a new rifle...I've been looking at Winchester Model 70 Sporter in .25-06 to be used primarily for deer hunting. When I do a search of Model 70's it seems the information I get mostly are about the pre-64 Model 70. What I've learned so far is that Winchester is currently owned by FN Herstal and are manufacturer in South Carolina. I was wondering if anyone has any experience with the current brand of Winchester manufactured in SC and what opinions you have about them.

Realistically any reputable modern bolt gun will do as well in the deer woods out to 300 to 400 yards as well as any other be it Savage, Winchester, Remington, Mossberg, Ruger, etc... They will all shoot better than you!

Shoulder and if possible fire different brands and work the controls. There will be one you prefer for one reason or another and that will be the best rifle for you!

We live in the golden age of affordable accurate rifles.
