  1. Is there problems with the bolt action on these guns

    • The 770 is, form what I’ve heard, gritty and heavy, I have one in 30-06, and it’ll take whatever I can hit pretty much in the world, definitely in N.Amercia. But the 700 has an adjustable trigger, I have been shooting since childhood and never had a trigger give me issues hitting a running target.
