I just bought a rem 770 7mm mag. I have a rem 700 7mm mag but could not pass on the price. I was thinking my brother could use it when we bear hunt. I have heard so many bad things about the 770 since I bought it...but after taking it to the range I have to say I love it. Very accurate and it was soo cheap. Yes the action on the 700 is a bit better, (niether comes close to the mauser action) I think this rifle gets a bad rap for no practical reason. It's cheap to buy, accurate as ****, and if you care much about what it looks like, well, your not buying a dress.
