Default Remington 770 in .308

Anybody own one or shoot it? Looking to buy a intro deer hunting rifle and was hoping to get some of y'alls experiences and opinions. Is it worth buying? Thanks in advance!

there are better choices out there, even for the price. If I had to have new, and had to stay in that price range, I would buy mossberg. If it were price only as the restraint and new vs used doesnt matter, you can do better for the money at a pawn shop or just watching online for a used deal. Why .308 for deer? Where you hunting?

Yea definatly stay away from the 770, you could probably get a remington 700 for not too much more.

I didn't care much for the "feel" of the action on the 770. I went with the Mossberg ATR100 chambered in .270 when I was looking in that price-range. I was very pleased with the gun.
Since then I bought a Marlin X7 in 7mm-08. It's a few bucks more than what you're looking at, but I would say well worth it. Has a 2-stage trigger (like the savage accutrigger), fairly light-weight, feels great. Give them a look some time.

Walk into a Walmart that has a good selection of guns. I saw Mossberg and Savage deals at the the Walmart in Niceville and Crestview.

The Remington 770 is a piece of shit, plain and simple. There are much better rifles out there for near the same money.

Ruger American
Marlin XL7
Savage axis
Mossberg 100 ATR
NEF handi rifle

Go with the Savage, Accu Trigger is great I shoot the .308 and would use it in any of the lower 48 and maybe in alaska for anything except Bear might be a little lite. good allround gun with wide choice of bullet weights.
