    It is as good as and possibly maybe even better than the 700 except for the trigger.

    I have a 270 Allen Mag (improved 300 RUM necked to 270) on a 721 and she's great. Except for the trigger of course. But then I didn't discover the trigger deficiency until I had a Jewel trigger installed on another build.......

    i prefer the 721, as I can usually find older '06 or .270 cal. with bad extractor for a reasonable price. I use the sako extract. anyway, so no big deal. The 721 seems to be "smooooother" also.
