I'm still looking. Rem 760 carbine would be perfect.
There has to be somebody on this site who has one for sale, or a friend or uncle etc. Mine was stolen some years back, and I'm getting back into deer hunting

This is an older post but you’re all over imo. A 7mm mag and 35 Whelen have very different characteristics and are best suited for two totally dif things.
A 270 and 30/06 are pretty similar but again near neither of your first two calibers.
What exactly do you wanna use the gun for is a question you should consider.
From there if caliber isn’t a major consideration at least you’ll have an idea where to start.
A long range flat shooting gun like a 7mm mag, a mid range gun like an 06, etc.
Now if I was gonna do it all over, and I have more than a few rifles, I’d lean towards Sako.
If the price scares ya another gun to look at is a T3 Tikka.
An old 700 or Model 70 is good too but it’s gotta be older yet not beat up. Model 70s imo, and I mean to offend no one, their triggers are terrible but can be worked. That adds to cost
