Well I had to cancel my order on the 700 for now. After buying a scope, rings, base, ammo, cleaning supplies, eye and ear protection it was just over my spending budget right now for being a full time student. I picked up the M&P15-22. Right now a .22 is going to suit my needs for just plinking, and I just really liked how this one felt. Later down the line, within the next year, I do plan on picking up a 700, loved how that felt too. But that will remain for when it fits my budget.
