Anyone that had a safety problem broke one of the number one rules when using a firearm, NEVER RELY ON THE SAFETY.

the problem wasn't the safety persay, but the idiots trying to adjust the triggers and doing it improperly and the safety didn't work because the idiots didn't know what they were doing. so how is that a problem with the safety?

I have a 770 in 30-06. I bought it becuase I needed an elk rifle. I was in a hurry and didnt have a bunch of money. I understand that the 700 is a better built rifle. My 770 is a super acurate rifle. I can shoot 1" groups at 200 yards. That is 1/2 moa. Maybe I got the only good one? But I can say the action feels like a toy. It feels cheap. It will probably not hold up to abuse. But if you are looking for a hunting rifle to carry around in the woods and shoot a few time a year it would probably do the job. If you are wanting something to shoot the crap out of at the range...I would look at the 700.

every 710 or 770 i have seen were not bad shooters. for a loaner gun or somebody who goes out a few times a year they would work i just feel for the price there are better choices in that are of budget rifles. guns are like women what you like maybe the next guy doesnt

If you've ever banged an expensive rifle/scope against a deer stand or tree like I have you tend to re-evaluate priorities. I decided I don't need 1500 bucks worth of rifle to kill a deer. Now I hunt with a .308 Win., Mossberg 100 ATR, with the LBA trigger, and the generic 3X9 scope that came with it. Great trigger, plenty accurate, and $299.99 plus tax at Academy.
Now if you're going to shoot in rifle matches you might go with something a little more expensive.

700 no contest at all. Beat choice is to get an older one. New 700s aren't anything like they used to be. Better yet get a savage.

I shot one and loved it. Feels and looks of quality seams better than a 700 IMO. Not sure what you mean by this comment, do you not like ruger rifles?

All Ruger rifles and handguns use the investment casting process. What is the problem with investment casting? How many action screws are needed to regulate a turn bolt action?
How many screws does the 98 Mauser father of most modern turn bolts have?
