I own a 770. It FUNCTIONS flawless. Hits the target everytime, scope stays centered... I like it for a budget 30.06. I do like my buddy's savage with accutrigger but I believe that was 2x the money.

It's got a heavy trigger pull that can be adjusted easily. The plastic stock is crappy looking but I don't really look at it. The action works fine, was sticky at first but a little oil and wear and it's been great. I have just under 500 rounds through it and it gets smoother everytime I use it.

For the price, I'm happy with it. And for what it's worth, I didn't just look at it on the shelf and cycle the bolt; I actually own one. I shoot 1.5 inch groups at 200 yards with 150 grain factory crap. It may shoot better but I don't .

It says limited supply, so I don't know if he has any left. NSS lists the 783 in 30.06 on their homepage for $315 plus shipping.

I absolutely love my weatherby vanguard. Its a lil heavy but all in all its a great all around hunting rifle for the price. Its a 7mm rem mag. I got it with a free Nikon buckmaster 3x9.

Sheesh - outside of doubles shotguns, bolt-action rifles seem to bring out the extremes of gun snobbery.

I remember when the Rem710 came out. At the time, I had never had a "modern" bolt-action rifle, having cut my teeth in the gun world with Mosin-Nagant rifles and other milsurps. I'd never yet owned a scoped rifle of any kind and they didn't yet have those nifty scope kits they do now for M-N rifles. So, I thought I'd look at the Big 5 specials and experience seeing and hitting targets at long range. If I could do it for less than $400, so much the better.

I looked at a 710 in the store, it seemed like an okay rifle for the price, but I read a number of reviews (from actual users) stating that it had serious QC issues. I ended up buying a used Savage 10 in .308 which was a very nice rifle, even if it was pre-Accutrigger and had a crappy synthetic stock.
