A Bass Pro Exclusive! The Remington Whitetail Pro Model 770 Rifle/Scope Combo is the perfect instant gratification choice for any hunter itching to load his new gun and start shooting. Fast forward through the sometimes exhausting process of selecting, mounting, and sighting a scope and components, Whitetail Pro rifles comes with a pre-mounted and boresighted 3-9x40mm riflescope. Built to Remington's rigorous standards for accuracy and reliability, the Whitetail Pro continues the legacy of Remington's popular 700 and 710 models with modern advancements for even more accuracy and reliability. The ergonomically contoured Realtree AP HD synthetic stock features a raised cheekpiece for rapid scope to eye alignment and grip texture in all the right places. With its 22 Inch' six-groove button-rifled barrel, solid steel receiver, and crisp, single-stage trigger, this rifle is ready to punch tight groups in any target. The Whitetail Pro delivers superior action strength by combining a ''three rings of steel'' design with three locking lugs that secure the ultra-smooth bolt directly into the barrel. The short, 60º bolt throw with an easier-to-cam design delivers faster follow-up shots. Finally, the detachable, dual-stack steel box magazine features a more durable latch for longer life.

The bolt is extremely rough. A smooth bolt was not a priority in the design for this model.
The first time we had it out the mounting point for the sling broke! Since it is a one piece stock there's nothing to be done to fix it - short of replacing the entire stock.
This is without a doubt my worst firearm.

Just bought a 30-06 whitetail pro and am very happy with it. Scope was about 1 foot low and 6 inches left out of the box. I am a total newbie rifleman, but was able to get the scope sited in very easily. Probably had an inch and a half group at 100 yards. I was very pleased. Box magazine works great, no misfeeds after 30 rounds. People complain about the bolt, but I didn't notice much difference between this and a model 700. I would recommend to anyone looking for an economical deer gun.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Fenster OK for the money
If you you are on a strict budget and go deer hunting once or less per year and want to do a bit of target practice this gun works just fine. If you are going to go more than twice per year, spend another $100 bucks and get a weatherby or the 700. Action is mega sloppy, better off not using the clip at all. Gun kicks worse than my 12ga. Very accurate. Scope is fine up to 150 yards.
All in all, I love shooting it, but wish I had spent the extra $100 bucks on the weatherby.

The 770 is a very good starter hunting rifle for someone looking to get into a good rifle to start deer hunting with. It's by no means a high quality hunting rifle, but it's not low-end garbage, either. It is dependably manufactured, easy to use, and the scope comes from the factory mounted to the rifle and is bore sighted out of the box, so all you need to really do is giver it a proper oiling of the bolt mechanism, load it up and hit the tree stand or the woods. Make sure that you add a good rifle strap if you're going to be packing this rifle around hiking through the back country in search of your first buck.
Depends on how good of a shot you are really. I would suggest a 30-06, though my buddy goes with a .308 WIN and he is able to drop some big boys as well. I've never personally seen anyone go smaller than a .308, but if someone can do it I have much respect. Overall, go with a 30-06. Its got the stopping power, you can shoot it all day with no problem, and it's fun to say "with an F150 and a 30-06" haha, best of luck.
I wouldn't reccomend the 770 at all. Step up to the 700. Not much more money but a much much better rifle. .308 is a great round. Will kill just about anything in N.A.. There is more variablity with the 06 though. Different strokes for different folks. Either way stay away from the 770. See the August 2011 issue of Shooting Times pg. 46 for more.
Bolt and firing mechanism are very similar to 700, so the 770 could have similar problems. As long as bolt is cleaned and lubricated every year or two you should be fine. Problem apparently happens when grease in bolt gets so old that it dries out.
