8" at 145yds is not that accurate. I'm not saying the 770 is completely bad but the axis/x7/ruger american are all a step above it.

From all reports the 770 usually offers decent accuracy. That said, it's crudely machined with sloppy clearances and poor fit.

If it were the only rifle priced in the $300 range I might hold my nose and let it pass, but right now there's a renaissance of inexpensive rifles such as the four I listed that sell for similar prices. Since that's the case there's no excuse whatsoever for buying a 770. All four listed are better rifles by a WIDE margin. This is why Remington has dropped it. I'll hold off on the 783 until I get a chance to see one in detail.

Why buy something crappy when you can buy something better for the same price.

I have shot both rifles. I don't see why people bash the 770. I have never shot a paper target with a 700 but it is a golf ball busting machine. The axis isn't bad either. I didn't find the axis to be as accurate but the axis I shot was chambered in 223. We were shooting surplus ammo that came in a 25 gallon drum. I am sure better ammo could be located.

The remimgton action isn't as smooth as the marlin or ruger. Not a big fan of the axis though.
