Its not the 770 - it a 700 the letters on the front left side of reciever start with BB - I dont know if that means blued bolt or somthing else. The stock feels like cheap plastic though.

Tim- you do not say what you are shooting at. you do not say what scope. i adjusted the trigger , removed the 3-9 and put a 6-24 bausch lomb on a 1967 adl ; it will shoot less than .5 with my handloads.

Re: accuracy of walmart rem 700.

I bought a Remington 700 SPS in 7RM last year, and I am currently shooting the 168 gr Bergers through it. It shoots lights out, putting everything in one hole at 100 yards, and the best I have done with it at 1000 yards is a 6" group, which is still less than 1 MOA.

The load that the gun likes is a bit on the light side, but i have decided that accuracy is more important to me than speed is.

I'm shooting 65.5 grains of H1000, 168 gr Berger hunting VLD's, Winchester cases, and WLRM primers. The chronograph told me they were shooting at 2730 fps, but the drops show that the MV is actually 2875 fps.

I hope yours will shoot as well as mine has. Good luck!

Re: accuracy of walmart rem 700.

I bought a rem 700 in a 30-06 from walmart. Piece of crap. It shot terrible. I hand loaded and the best COSISTENT group i could do at 100 yds was 1 1/2 in or more. Very unconsistent gun. never knew what i was going to get from day to day. to be honest i wouldn't give anyone a dime for a remington nowadays. They shoot like crap.

I beg to differ. I have 3 low end Remington 700's that all shoot one hole with the correct load. That being said, they have all shot 4-6" groups with factory ammo, or a hand load that they just didn't like.

My dad has purchased two other low end remmy's in the time that I have gotten mine, and they also shoot under 1 MOA.

You may have gotten a lemon, but that does not mean they all shoot like crap. In my experience they do quite the opposite.

Not trying to be argumentative. I just hate blanket statements about Remington rifles as being "crap".
