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.
Romans 1:16 I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile.
