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.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Logan12 decent rifle
all ive ever heard about this rifle is bad reviews....i wasnt gonna get one till i caught a pretty good deal on one...so there i was putting rounds through it ....before i shoot any gun i own i oil it up real good so i barely even noticed the "sticky bolt" problem ....it was fairly accurate hitting decent groups at a decent range...this gun isnt a near perfect m-700...but then again it never was designed to be....the barrel is press fitted so you cant just unscrew it and replace it and it probaly wudnt be a good idea anyhow...overall i like this gun

I bought this gun about a month ago and am glad that I did it is a great gun. I have had no issues so far the when i first pulled it out of the box it did have a stickey bolt but once it was well oiled then it was no longer an issue. Also for the price you can't be expecting the worlds greatest gun but this is a good sturdy gun that I can't wait to go hunting with, the scope is just so-so it will need to be upgraded.

Rated 4 out of 5 by GunGuru13 Good starter rifle....
Now, I'm not going to bash the sticky bolt. This seems to be everyone's main complaint, but mine was easily corrected with some proper oiling. I bought this rifle when we first started carrying them at the shop I work in, and let me tell you that it does not compare to the Model 700. But then again, it's not supposed to... The 770 is meant to be the affordable and quick rifle for a beginner. I recommend the Model 770 to those new to rifle shooting. The only time someone really notices the problem is when they go from the near perfect Model 700 to the "discount rack" Model 770. I personally do not like the way the bolt moves through the chamber and some other little things. These small problems did not affect my accuracy, in fact the scope was nearly perfect straight out of the box (I was pleasantly surprised). The Model 770 is excellent for those looking for an entrance into the world of rifles.

I purchase this rifle about month ago and took it out for the first time today. The scope was not sighted at all, had to shoot a few rounds down range to fix that. When I first got the rifle the bolt was a little rough until I put some oil in there. When firing the rifle the bolt would stick every once in a while, and it does not eject the spent casing, so i had to keep doing it my self which to much of my shooting time after every shot. You pretty much get what you pay for.

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.
