Ladies and gents- please do not discuss those that are no longer with our merry band. Not classy. Being absent, they have no ability to respond.

Suffice it to say that we do not lightly nor casually kick someone to the curb- and there is first significant discussion among all of us that are charged with that (unpleasant) duty.

Their absence is adequate.

I know i am in the minority, but i think little tombstones at the bottom of the "active users" list would be an acceptable tribute to the fine art of BSing. Maybe allow a parting quote for the tombstone, so we could count how many "Avenge Me" markers there would be.

Just because I'm on the curious side and wonder how well or poorly other experience with the rifle has been, does anyone here happen to own a Remington 770 at all?

I've looked up reviews because I found one for what I felt was a great price several years ago (I want to say it was around $250)

The reviews seem pretty much the same as almost every other gun that gets consumer reviews online. The one's who hate it are the most vocal. The one's that love it seem quietly safisfied...

The one thing all the reviews had in common, they all seemed to vary on some sentiment that the 770 is a cheaped down version of the 700, and performs as such.

No personal experience with it. My only experiences with a modern bolt gun were an older 700 in .22-250, my Granddad's Model 70 in .30-06, and the M40A3 (another 700 action).

That's why I was wondering. Everyone who's actually put more then one or two boxes through the gun seems to feel they got a decent gun for what they payed for it.

If I was to buy another centre fire, it probably would be a 700. But as of now, I feel like the 770 I've got was worth the price I paid as I've been able to hold sub MOA groups with both factory ammunition and hand loads. I don't know about shots past 200yards, but at that distance I was able to hit a steel target about a foot tall and 6-7" wide with every shot.

I found one at Wally World with a scope on it. It was selling for 250 dollars. I ran away. I'd save the cash and get a bona-fide 700.

I don't have any experience with the 770, but I do own a 700.

The 770 is basically the economy version of the 700. From what I've heard, they cut a few corners on the material quality for some of the parts. I have also heard that they are extremely accurate.
If your happy with it, that is all that matters.
