well Bullet, i commend you on your shooting. very nice groups indeed. you do seem to have one of the few accurate ones.
what you say about the M770 is true. it's hit or miss on accuracy and more so on miss! my M770 wouldn't even get near a group like yours. the very best i could ever get even with handloads was even over 2" groups. some even over 3". not acceptable to me at all. i have seen the results of a few M770's that were accurate, but they seem to be rare creatures. i even had one person tell me i didn't know how to shoot. hmmmm.... the Mossberg ATR 100 in 30-06 i replaced it with would shoot groups like yours, but it had a recoil problem! the M700 in 30-06 i replaced the Mossberg with will shoot groups like yours as well. so will all my other rifles. so i highly doubt i was the problem behind the M770!
as much as i like my Remingtons, they really dropped the ball with the M770. Marlin's X7's, Savage Axis, the Mossberg ATR100, and now the Ruger American. much better choices for an entry level rifle.
i'm glad you got one of the few that works well for you and again, that's really good shooting.
