Make sure it is model #325154T. The "T" is the tactical. The "M" is the regular turret. It has 50 MOA adjustment. Most places show the "M" scope even when they are selling the Tactical. The place where I got mine was that way.

I wish that I would have read this post sooner. I had a 710 and I was very amazed at the accurac that I got out of it. I also had the .270 and I was shooting the Hornady 130gr sst. I also put on a barrel deresonator and a limbsaver recoil pad for length ( I have long monkey arms). I shot a 5 round group at 200 yards that you could put a dime over. I was surprised as hell. I also nailed a woodchuck at 512 yards with it. Man I loved that "cheap" gun!!

Did yours have the gray stock? My cousin has a 710 shooting 30.06 and his has the gray stock. From what I see the Olive Drab stock that mine has is fairly rare? I looked online and couldn't find any with the Olive Drab stock? I read on one website that the Green stock was a special edition model?, but I can't confirm if that is true!
I heard the new Remington 770 which replaced the 710 is built better than the 710, but who knows if that means it shoots better or not?! I think it just depends if you get one of the good ones from the factory or not!

Re: Scopes. For the money our family has been pretty happy with the Bushnell Elite's. We have a few of the 3200's and the glass is good with no problems. We paid under $200 for each of our 3x9's.
