I love M700s. I'm a confirmed Remington guy. However, I also love Steyrs. They aren't as pretty as some, but in a sort of a loveably ugly way, they're neat looking. And, without a doubt, they shoot! Right out of the box they shoot. I had a Pro Hunter in 7mmRM. I had loaded up several test loads in a box of 20. I had 10 rounds of mixed loads of 150s and 160s with 3 different powders. I'd decided which to load and needed the brass. I fired the 10 shots in to one groupl of under an inch at 100 yards. That gun shot every bullet and powder combo I ever put through it in to an inch or less, and usually in one hole. I can't recall ever seeing a Steyr that wouldn't do close to the same thing.
