I have found a great price on a Remington 700. It's brand new with the "package" scope on it and .300 caliber. I also found a good price on the new Model 770 too. I was wondering if any of you have one/both of them or have shot either one. I'm in the market for either a .308 or .300 and I think I want to get either the 700 or 770.

700= Great rifle. It has stood the test of time
770= Piece of junk. There's a reason it's so much cheaper than all other rifles

When it comes to deer rifles I have always preferred Browning or Ruger. With that being said you not gonna find many folks bad mouthing a Rem. 700. They're just all around dang good rifles. Oh and I'd vote .308

By the way in the same price range as the 700 you can get a Savage with Accutrigger. You will not outshoot it out of the box with another straight out of the box rifle. They make good guns too

I have a 710 in .270.. It's a cheap gun as well as the 770.. But it's never failed on me and holds a good pattern. I'd go with the 700, they are better made!

700 is a great gun and the barrels on my brothers and mine are out of this world and the durability will be tied but not beaten. however a 300 or a 308 is not my cup of tea, lil to much for me.

I vote 700 in .308. The 770 is an ok gun for the price but doesnt touch the quality or dependability of the 700. That 700 should outlast you!

Depends on the "package" scope on it. What kind is it?
I expect it's a Nikon Prostaff or something like that. If you're wanting a 300 Win mag, you need that scope to be at least a 4-12x IMO. Really no reason to have a gun that can shoot 1000 yards when you can't see that far with a cheaper scope.

The 700 is one of the best rifles out there to me. I have a 7mm that will drive nails. No complaints what so ever on it.

The savage mentioned earlier isn't a bad rifle, but the stock isn't exactly a great thing on it. My FIL bought one a couple weeks ago (~$425) and it's not a bad rifle. The stock on it seems a little weak for my liking, and it was a "package" deal with the Nikon ProStaff 3-9x40BDC. Took a little work to get it right, but once we fixed the screw ups from the guy that supposedly bore sighted and mounted the scope, it was hammering.

Just my opinion if you're wanting to shoot a 300 Win, you shouldn't be buying it in a package deal. Normally package deals don't come with a mid to upper tier scope on them.

a buddy of mine has a 770 in a 7-08 and loves it. i shot it myself and loved it. i popped a few deer in the white patch so its hard for me not to like it. as far as for a 700 everyone has one. there a great gun.i shot a 30-06 and a 7-08 and they both shot good.

Well over 1 million 700s produced, all custom rifles are built on the 700 bolt. What does that say? But, I prefer a Tikka. Just my opinion.

If you are an active hunter and know you'll hunt for years...the 700. Years of reliablity, accuracy and families fed for generations is what it brings to the table. Just find ammo that the gun likes.

As for the caliber...unless ur hunting bean fields IMO the .300 is over kill. If your shotting at green fiedls 100-200yrds...try one of the smaller cartridges...7mm-08...22.250. Something that is a pleasure to shoot.

I think a lot of guys with 30 year old 700s would be disappointed with the ones made today. Lots of guys love new ones but the guys who really shoot always put a new stock on it and then have to get a trigger job. If your looking magnums for long range find a used sako or weatherby mark v. Sight it in and it will outshoot you.

For 500yards+, you're right. Anything less than that, not a thing wrong with them. But past that you're pretty much into a custom built anyway.

I have had 2 "built" rifles. All of the mine and others I researched, all are built on a Remington 700. My .308 LTR is my tack driver. My 7 mag is my 600 yd gun. I can't shoot further then that with out a vise. Not the gun. I bet I could group at a 1000

To give you an idea of why I'm interested in a .308/300....Where we hunt in Southern TN, I(IF I wanted to) have the opportunity to shoot up to 700 yards. I do not feel comfortable shooting that far but I would like the ability to, if a monster walked out, shoot one out to ~400 yards. My .270 @ 300 yards drops 11 inches so I am wanting something with a better trajectory.

And as for the package deals, I know that the scopes that come with those guns aren't high quality scopes but I have several Leupolds on various guns that I can take off and put on a new gun. I was simply looking at the packages as a good price for the gun itself.
