Have not shot a 783 yet but IMHO the 770 is the worst hunk of garbage Remington ever put their name on. I WAS a long time Remington fan but have been boycotting their rifles for several years now since their QC has gone to $#!^ lately I am even avoiding their reloading components. Save yourself the headaches and buy another brand, I have had great luck with Tikka, Winchester and Savage since dumping Remington, my T3 shoots better then even my good old Remington 700s did.

I've had the 770 starting to get better groups like 4 inch 100 yards not that amazing but it does the job! I've never had a problem out of mine shot 100 rounds one day and it ran outstanding and my bolt isn't sticky like I've heard alot are!

Collector... only reason I can see for you buying a Rem 770 is if you plan your collection in the POS catagory!

Looking for a budget great shooting rifle? It's spelled SAVAGE.

Dang I understand how you could say it has some cheaper replacement components but what makes you think it's in the pos category? I mean really you probably have never even owned one! Maybe went to the local academy and held and it made you decide ahh that's a pos?

actually i have owned a M770 in 30-06. probably the worst excuse for a rifle i ever owned. the bolt was rough and sticky. the trigger was heavy and gritty feeling. it shot groups like a shotgun patterns. and for the record, i like Remingtons and own many Remington firearms. also this was not just a one rifle deal either, as i have shot many M770's in various cailbers and all that i have shot, couldn't group worth a dang.

and please don't tell me it must have been me, because i have been shooting guns well over 40 something years and own some very accurate rifles, plus i also reload for all my centerfire rifles and even tried some handloads in the M770 with no good results either.

as for the M783, haven't seen one in person yet, so i don't know if they have improved the failings of the M770 or not. personally, i would probably just pass on the M783 and just buy a M700 instead. i know that one is a proven platform.

Your own words have condemmed the rifle.
Your groups have IMPROVED to 4" @100yd ! I would reject a rickety M94 30-30 with open sights with that grouping.

The 100 rounds in 1 day, all fired in sighting in?

My advice is to leave it in your vehicle & hope someone steals it.
Watch that the thief doesn't return it next day!

The 770 deserves it's place at the bottom of the food chain, I know way too many people who own one and they all hate them. I would imagine that the 783 would HAVE to be better because it is hard to imagine a rifle any worse, I don't plan on finding out though I don't want another Remington they have been nothing but headaches for me, Freedom Group has ruined them IMHO.
