“Not a bad rifle for $300”

Written on: 29/09/2014 by Jenkins420 (1 review written)

I was given a Remington 770 .300 win mag by a family member a few years ago. I figured it would be the perfect deer hunting rifle for me considering I hardly ever use a rifle, so spending a $1000 on a high quality rifle didn't make much sense. Most of the time I deer hunt with a bow or shotgun (1952 Browning A5 that still shoots like a champ). My first time using this rifle I killed 2 deer with one shot at 60yrds using a 180grn round. I have taken a few deer over 100yrds, the farthest being at… Read Full Review

After which my groups was 3 inch at 150 yards. 85 deg, light tail wind, sunny day. I like the rifle, shoots great cleans easy. Down side, magazine felt a little loose, never failed… Read Full Review

“not impressed”

Written on: 07/10/2013

I was given this 770 30.06 model for my birthday. I love the accuracy and feel of the gun, but when I tried the gun the ammo wouldn't feed into the chamber properly took it back to the gun shop they said they had said they fixed it, tried it again still the same,then I tried another magazine still the same. The magazine in this gun is sloppy and I think there lies the problem. I think I will get rid of it and buy another brand. I'm not impressed with this gun and would not recommend to my… Read Full Review

“Very poor quality rifle”

Written on: 01/02/2013

I purchased the 770 in February of 2012 because I have always wanted a bolt action rifle. I took it the the range to sight it in and found that the bolt has far too much friction. The box magazine does not feed correctly. I sent it back to Remington for repair and they returned it to me a week later no better than it was when I sent it in. I sent it back a second time and still the bolt scrapes along the receiver and it does not feed properly. When I called Remington the customer service… Read Full Review

“Magazine for .270 falls apart”

Written on: 22/11/2012

I bought the 770 model last year and besides the bolt sticking, the magazine falls apart. I put it back together to continue hunting but after shooting one bullet at a deer. I walked over to the deer, loaded it up on my four wheeler and took off to camp. Little did I realize that when I was heading out that afternoon, I no longer had the magazine, just the hull, the bottom, the top and the spring are gone. Ruined my hunting. I cannot find one anywhere without having to spend extra money to ship… Read Full Review

“770 308 cal review”

Written on: 08/10/2012

I bought a Remington 770 308 over the weekend. The purpose for purchasing this gun was as a loaner gun for friends and family that come up to Northern MI. to hunt deer. I did read all the negative reviews and decided to give it a try. I was a owner of a Bait/ tacle /gun business for over nine years. I do own and have worked on much more expensive rifles. I do know the difference between a great gun and a poor gun. After taking this out to my gun range yesterday, I'd say this is a decent rifle… Read Full Review

Here is what I think of Remington model 770 cal 243. I thought it was a good gun at first it is a Remington. Started to shoot in the back yard then the second shot the back part blew out. It smoked out of the bolt and could hardly move it. The action is totally destroyed… Read Full Review

“cant touch a Marlin”

Written on: 19/07/2012 by tennesseehunter (1 review written)

I have a 770 in a 300 mag. I thought it would be an improvement of the 710, its not.It has a poor action and a very tricky mag. The best bolt action i have found is the Marlin XL7. I have one in 30-06 and shoot a 1 3/8 group at 300 yards and it has just as smooth of action as a $10,000 gun. It has a 4 round hidden box mag and a free floating barrel. It is the one i think gives savage a little competition… Read Full Review

“Accuracy seriously missing”

Written on: 01/06/2012 by chft (1 review written)

I have owened dozens of rifles over the years and shot competitive for several. I sold a .243 because I felt 1.5" groups for a .243 wasn't that great. I had never owened a Remington rifle before but every shooter that I talked to raved about theirs so I thought now is the time for me to buy one. I bought the 770 in .243,came with the scope. I took it to the range with 80gr and 100gr Remington ammo. The rifle was shot from the bench with sandbags and could not get better than a 6" group. I… Read Full Review

“Serviceable Cheap Remington”

Written on: 09/03/2012 by Greyfedora (1 review written)

My uncle gave me the model 770 in 3006 as a gift after his elk hunt in Colorado. When he first bought the rifle he wanted me to sight it in for him and for me to try it out deer hunting. I found the rifle to be a tack driver and was able to sight it in with only 10 rounds at 100 yards with 1 inch group. I was stunned at the accuracy of this cheap rifle. The rifle killed a nice 3 point buck with a Core Lock 165 grain bullet. Now I have to get critical. The rifle is heavy and cheap looking. The… Read Full Review

“In short, P.O.S.!!”

Written on: 07/07/2011

Biggest piece of junk I have ever purchased. Bought the gun in .270 cal. for my son as a beginning hunter. It is fairly accurate but that is the only good thing I can say about it. The bolt sticks all the time and deforms the tip of the bullet when chambering a round. This cost my son a shot at a good buck deer. It is also heavy. For about 200.00 more dollars I bought him and my other two sons the weatherby vanguards. Well worth a little extra money and they're great guns. Remington makes a… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/04/2011

Okay, So I bought the Rem 770 in a .243 variant about 2 years ago. I have been on 2 hunts with it. First off I love the Bushnell scope that the gun comes with, except for the fact I have to use roughly a box of ammo to get it sighted in every year. Thankfully, it doesn't mess up while I'm in the bush. Secondly, the gun itself shoots very acccuratly. I have taken out 2 deer with it(one a season) so I'm not complaining about that. After that it all goes downhill. The quality of the bolt action is… Read Full Review

I purchased the Remington 770 in 30-06, came with a Bushnell sharpshooter scope. Out of the box it took 10 rounds to sight it in for 150 yds. I've used it this deer season (2010 / 2011) and have had ZERO problems with it. I keep the bolt pretty well oiled and never had a problem with the action. If you want to put meat in the freezer get this rifle… Read Full Review

I bought the remington 770 chambered for a .270 and its a great gun. it's a flat shooting gun for the money you cant beat it. the only minor problem is the bolt is a little rough but as long as you're fast and stiff with the bolt it's one of the best deer rifles under 350 dollars… Read Full Review
