Just out of curiosity, have you fired the 770 at all? I own one and that coyote I took was at 150 yards and it placed the bullet exactly where I wanted it to go, right behind the shoulder.
Everyone seems to bag on this rifle and its apparent total lack of repeatable accuracy. I've owned one for almost a year now and aside from when I first got it, I've been able to keep my groups at 1.5" or lower. One of my best groups was actually with factory ammunition and it was a little over half an inch. The vast majority of my groups are all under an inch. The ones that are larger, like when I first started shooting centre fires (this rifle was my first), I put the blame on me as the shooter.
