I need some advice
 
Ok, I've hunted all my life and I've only had 3 deer rifles. Browning .243, browning .300 win mag, and browning .7mm o8. Ive been looking at new guns and I found a good deal on a remmington 700 30-06. Can anyone who knows anything about this gun help me out?
I'm not too famillar with the remmington 700

Remington 700 is a solid platform. Their QC has suffered lately, but they will correct any deficiencies. I would rather have a Savage, Browning or Howa, but the 700 is good

Never owned one but there seems to be a ton out there for them and also I think alor of swat and leos use them . They are over priced to me as are the goodies for them but to each his own .

They had trigger problems in the past. Gun would go off without the trigger being touched. Not sure now if it is still a problem.

Why not spend the money on reloading equipment and you can down load your 300wm to do what the 06 will do. You can also expand what your other cartidges can do.

Not a bad idea, but it's also going to be the gun my nephew uses this year when he starts hunting by himself. So I don't want to give him my first deer rifle, or one of my $1000 Brownings, I think I have pretty much decided on a savage, they have a very inexpensive 30-06 scope combo. That way I don't have to worry about him scratching it up or dropping it out of a tree.

Hey man. Don't ever try to talk a guy out of buying a new (or another) gun no matter how many he already has. I believe such an action violates the guy code.

99% of the trigger problems were cause by uneducated gun owners trying to adjust their triggers,and got them too lite,or from not cleaning their guns properly.
This can happen to almost any brand of rifle with an adjustable trigger,not just the Remington 700.

Why would you say that?
The 700 is a way better rifle than the 770.

feeble attempt at sarcasm! the 700 is ten times the rifle the 770 could ever even hope to be. the 770 is better suited at being a jack handle than a rifle.

completely correct at the root problem of the 700's firing on their own. too many backyard Bubbafied gunsmithing caused those problems.
