Can you give some specifics regarding accuracy?

I've got a 770 and I enjoy it. With factory ammunition I can get just under MOA, with reloads I can get a little under 1/2 MOA. Do I like my rifle, of course I do. I've had it for a little over a year and some now.

Do I recommend picking up one? That's entirely up to you right now. Mine was honestly an impulse buy so I didn't waste a 5 hour round trip. If I had known all the issues people have with it, I honestly don't think I would of boughten it. I'm glad I did though, got my first and second coyote with it.

I had issues with my bolt sticking and I could never shoot less than a 3-3 1/2" group at 100 yds.

I know when he said sticky he meant the 770. That's all I ever here when I say that. Then I say here pop mine on back and it's like a different story

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.

No sir! That was the 770. The only complaint @ the American so far is the stinking price of that second magazine I want.
