The 770 would not be my choice, I havn't owned any of the Marlins but have heard good reviews. Another choice in that price range would be a Weatherby Vangaurd great gun and very accurate. Some Walmarts have clearance guns in the back that never get put on the racks. You have to ask the sales person what they have, if they say thaey don't have any it wouldn't hurt to ask someone else. The one by me has some 700ADLs for $300.00.
I am not much of a Bolt guy. I looking for a 260 with a twist rate for heavy bullets. Not looking for a top notch bench gun but more of a medium weight rifle for sitting positions were shots can get "out there". Hunting shots will be no more than 4 or 500 after I practice with it. I will shoot steel out to 1000. I may look for a Model 7 or 700 with a synthetic stock. Anyone have suggestions?
