Have two buddy's that bought the 770's, because of the price,,,,,,, one traded it off in less than a year, the other is not his go to rifle. He leaves it behind the truck seat as a backup camp gun. I'm with the rest of the group here,,,,,,, check into some used rifles, or new ones that were spoken about before. I spent I think for a Savage 110 in 270win all for $300.00 + They can be found, ya just gotta look. By the way that Savage 110 shot under an inch @ 100 yards.
