Re: Need some seasoned advice!
Yes, but explain the fact that every factory 700 SPS or higher priced model I have owned or shot has been capable of 1/2 MOA or better? Out of all the millions of 700's produced, do you think it is more common that more shoot better than poor? If all factory 700's were junk shooters do you really think they'd still be around and selling like they are, starting way back in 1962.
Granted, Remington does have some econo rifles that won't group to save its life, for example the 710...I have shot many and most are lucky to shoot a 3" group @ 100 yards. The last one I shot wouldn't shoot a 5" group with me behind the trigger, which, not bragging or being cocky, but that tells you the rifle won't shoot.
So don't think I'm all pro Remington and that they crap gold nuggets crusted in jewels. I know they have problems like every other company does. I've seen Remingtons, Savages, Howas, Weatherbys, and even Brownings that wouldn't shoot. No company is infalible or perfect 100% of the time.
