I own a rem 770 in 30-06 it is a very good shooter half inch shots at a100yards with the bushnell scope that came with it. It has taken a few deer in the last cpl of years with no problems . only problem i see with it is the action of the bolt is not as smooth as some of the higher price guns for a fairly cheap gun it has served me well

Default Worth the price

I also have one in a 30.06 and find it well worth the price.

I believe I read something recently about Remington making an improvement on the bolt. I have had no problems however.

there's a youtube video showing pictures of a Remington model 770 that, apparently exploded after just 2 rounds.
I haven't heard anything first hand about the Rem 770 But I'd be very concerned If I owned one.

I read the the 770 was an upgrade of the 710. The 710 I thought was a pretty good rifle, a friend of mine owned one, but that was years ago if thats the model I'm thinking about. I've never seen one of the 770's. Maybe the upgrade was a cheaper way of making it? Grins, not very good reviews anyway you look at it. We have a Remington plant here in town. They made a bolt action rifle here that was a piece of crap. Anyway to find out where they are made?
