    Avoid the 710 like the plague! My first rifle was one, I was young and foolish, cheap, plastic nastiness. Have I made myself clear?
    Opinions are like arseholes....... we all have them, and most of them stink

    I have 3. Some call them agricultural compared with the Sako's etc. but all mine have been blueprinted, are horribly accurate and have never let me down. Gunsmiths love them too, very easy to work on.

    I'm sure a few others will tell you differently.

    Sorry, mine are all 700's
    So much to learn and so little time left

    Are these new or used rifles?

    The 700 is a classic, and there is a large number of upgrade parts, stocks, bits and bobs etc. available if you want to 'customise' it later. Remington has recently had two major recalls over a trigger fault (which may or may not be a serious issue depending on who you talk to....).

    I don't think the 710 had a very good reputation, and was replaced by the 770 after a few years (I haven't heard too much about the 770 though). If you want to stick to Remington, take a look at their 783 too, it's their latest 'budget' offering.

    700 is much better the 710 and 770 where a bit to average and lots of people spent more money trying to make them 700.

    700 more than does the job and is very reliable.

    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.
