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

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?

I would think all the manufacture information would be within the Weapons Serial number But I'm not positive.
You could probably email Remington directly with any individual questions or concerns.

does any one own this gun how good of a gun is it. how well does it shoot. thank you for your help
I own this model. It is an ok gun. It is a pretty accurate rifle. I shot groups right out of the box. I didn't care for the scope that came on mine though. My only complaint is that the action is a little sticky when it is really cold; not as smooth as the model 700. But for the price it isn't too bad.

Disregard my earlier post. The rifle I was comparing it to was a 788, a fine rifle. The 710 was made in KY and not so good a gun. I hope the 770 is better.
