    Use the 700!!!!!

    they have the most after market parts of any rifle. steer clear of the 770 and I dont know
    anything about the 710 .

    700 is the only logical choice

    The 710 was the cheap set up that predated the 770.
    They are both far(!!!!!!!!!) less suitable for a build than the 700.

    Yes along with the others. Go with the 700. As said before the 710 and 770 are cheap production with almost no after market parts.
