Rem. 700 vs. Win. 70

The Remington 700 uses a push feed system: the bolt pushes a round from the magazine and into the chamber, but it never actually has control of it. The advantage of the system is that one can load a single round at a time into the chamber and have the bolt close over it. Disadvantage: potential for jams, for instance, if you push the bolt forward but don't close it, then retract it and push it forward again, you'll have a round in the chamber and another stripped from the magazine and a traffic jam.
The Winchester 70 Classic uses controlled feeding: as the bolt comes forward, a rounds is released from the mag and immediately comes under the authority of the huge claw extractor.
