Default Try to find a Remington 700 ADL

The old style 700 ADL preceded the newer SPS and it came with sights. The stock was usually injection plastic but it was a quality Model 700 action with a cheaper bead blasted finish on it. I saw some with and others without a dropping floorplate. Most of the ones I saw were either in 243 win, 270 win, or 30-06. The Model 700 is light years better than your 770. But you already knew that....

Remington 700, Ruger M77 Mark.II ... hard to go wrong with either of them. Many calibers offered.

Try a Savage Model 10 or 110. Model 10 is short action (.243, .308), the 110 long action (.270, .30-06). Stay away from the Savage Axis or whatever it's called. You get way more bang for your buck spending the extra $$ on the 10/110. They're well know for their straight out of the box accuracy.

My $.02 worth on the subject.

Default Action?

If you like the bolt actions then i would go with a Remington model 700. Or a sako. They both make nice bolts!

I personally prefer the pump action, just because I hunt in thick brush usually in Canada so I like having that quick action for those follow up shots. I just got the Remington model 7600. Amazing rifle. I got it in synthetic because it doesn't scratch up or warp like wood. I put a bushnell scope on it. The 7600 has a free floating barel so it will have the accuracy of any bolt action rifle. So kind of the best of both worlds.

Hope it helps a little bit :p
