Remington 783™ Rifle
Great beginner gun
All around great gun. Smooth trigger and bolt. Recommend getting the Remington 783 scope mounts. I did a lot of research on different rifles but this rifle is the biggest bang for your buck for new hunter. And I love my 30-06 tremendous power. Good accuracy plus your got the name behind it.

Remington Did It Again
I just picked this rifle up a few nights ago, and today finally got the time to head to the range and sight it in. I chose this rifle in .308 and I'm glad I did. It's accurate, shooting 1.5-inch groups at 100 yards and it's easy to handle. In total it only took me ten shots to get it fully sighted in. I'm going to use this for my Colorado elk hunt in a week and I'm confident it will perform well in possible temperatures of zero degrees. For the price of $400 (give or take) you can't beat this rifle. And, it's made by Remington...what more do I need to say?

Awesome accurate rifle
I bought the 30/06 version. This rifle is a joy to shoot. I put a Nikon Monarch 3 4-16X50mm scope with Remington 19729 high scope rings. The bolt barely misses the scope when ejecting and chambering a round. I shoot 150gr Hornady SST bullets with IMR 4064 powder and Winchester primers. Great combination! Makes for a great day at the range!

Best rifle under 400 dollars out there!
I purchased this rifle in .308 and am very happy I did. First time on the range at 100 yards shot a sub MOA of .75. Amazing to see a rifle shoot round after round in the same hole when it cost under $400.00. Very tight rifle, light and has very little recoil. I also bought a 770 in .308 for my son and have not noticed the issues with the bolt sticking. Sometimes it's a matter of pulling too hard and pushing the bolt into the rifle. I found that just flipping the bolt up and pulling it back with two fingers worked very well. It also shot sub MOA the first time out of the box. It is not as smooth as the 783, but not many rifles other than the 700's and Winchester 70's are. I am looking forward to my first deer with it. Will send some pictures later.
