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 .

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.
