Tuff choice between the two.
I tried a Remington and thought it was way too heavy for what it was.
Wow, won one....can't beat that. A lot of things, guns included you might get a real good one no problems or maybe a rare defective one or just personally get used to one over another. (I own neither 870 or 500.)
I also like to rank things by the best for the money, but it's nice if money is not an issue.
