I have a 700. The action is loose and damn thing hurts my shoulder.

Accurate as hell, hurts after 25 rounds, action pisses me off.

Still, I can make about 25 rounds group under 1” using a Leupold MK IV.

I am getting the new 783 and I’ll switch the Luepold over to that and then send the 700 out for a new bolt that is way smoother.

The 783 has a dampening system that will help with my anticipation and flinching from the pain. It has a better Bolt that glides instead of stuttering as the 770 does.

When I get the 770 fixed I’ll put the Luepold back on it and fit the 783 with a Brown and Schmidt.

The 770 is the gimped economy take on the 700. It’s not well finished and it is basically terrible to work the action on.

But it’s not a real 700.

I’ve also never heard of a 700’s bolt stuttering. My 700VTR doesn’t stutter, chatter or do anything like that. The bolt moves smoothly on it. Not quite like oil on glass, but not like dragging a stick through sand either.
