    If it's the .30-06 model don't bother. I had one for a while and it didn't shoot like I expected it to no matter what load I tried the best I got was about an inch and a quarter. My old bdl will do 3/4" of an inch with almost no regard for ammo. So I sold the long range.

    id expect like most remingturds, if you throw the trigger in the garbage and glass bed the stock it'll shoot fairly well.

    Bought a rem 700 Sendero in 308.Never could get real accuracy out of it. The usual 42.0 grs 4895 with a 168 Sierra matchking shot great in my old Savage 110Fp heavy barrel but not in the rem. Was thinking of getting the Rem reworked into 6.5 Creedmoor. Short on money long on enthusiasm. I've only had two factory rifles not U.S. made that really shot well. Steyr forget the model with adjustable length of pull in 30-06 would consistently get groups as small as 3/4"and the other which I will never sell is my Sako 75 hunter with wood stock and detachable magazine. That rifle will shoot 30-06 handloads at 3/4" and loves the remaining Lake City M-72 match ammo. Funny thing about that rifle. Will shoot my 165 grain Nosler Ballistic tips at 2800fps and the old M72 almost to the same point of impact. Didn't even have to change scope settings. Weird. Frank

    I believe it has an aluminum bedding block.

Only exception was that old adl. It shot moa and I foolishly let it go on trade toward a 264 77 that was a REAL turd. A couple of those rugers were old tang safety guns that shot closer to 3moa.

    Unlike some ive had good luck with even the newer rems. Ive got a sps 06 that I put in a cdl wood stock (because it was as ugly as a savage) that will shoot moa with about anything and groups that are amazing with loads it likes. its probably the most consistently accurate sporter weight rifle ive ever owned. I also had a cdl stainless in 257 wby that was easily a moa gun right out of the box and again got talked out of that one. I understand that some have stuggled with them and maybe there not the rems of the 60s and 70s but there sure far from junk today.

    Throw the trigger in the garbage? Well ill agree with that but youd best throw your ruger triggers into a hazardous waste disposal site. Even the new Winchester are bad out of the box as are about all of them in this law suit crazy world. When I buy a new gun I factor in the 100 bucks or so it takes to throw a timney trigger in it.

    This years gun budget is going to buy a new 257wby and a 7mag. Ive kind of settled on a vanguard for the 257. Buddy has one and I had an 06 vanguard and both were real shooters. I just don't want to buy two of the same. I know its kind of silly but when I saw this new rem it kind of stood out in the price range with the features it had.

    Im not real brand loyal other then the fact you would get me to spend a 100 bucks on another 77 ruger. Ive owned probably a dozen or more of them through the years and had exactly one good one. A 2506 hawkeye. I laughed at that one. My brother in law lives in montana. He ended up with the other brother in law that got killed in a car wrecks 8mm mag bdl. I want that gun bad so told him to pick anything in the safe. Now I had probably 25 or more bolt guns at that time and he picked a ruger! If it was the typical ruger ive owned I wouldn't have even let him walk out the door with it. It kind of hurt though because like I said I searched high and wide for a good shooting 77 and had to give that one up. Ive had much better luck through the years getting accurate #1s then I have 77s and even a few of them have been turds.

    Bergara makes a 300 win mag in the HMR line for about the same price as Remingtons long range. I'd go that route instead of a new production Remington.

    dont make a difference. due to sloppy tolerance every single stock i have ever seen with an aluminum bedding block responded to being glass bedded.

    I bought a 700 long range in 30-06. Shot in the 1.5 inch range. Put a timney trigger in it skim bedded it still a 1.5 inch gun. Pulled the barrel and chamber was .034 off the centerline of the bore looked like it was chambered ith a hand drill . Cut. The chamber off and fitted barrel to a Turk Mauser action and it shoots 3/4 still trying to decide what barrel to put on the remlin

    I am stuck with one of those turds no stellar accuracy there. My M1a out shoots it by alot with iron sights the only the only respectable load I could get it to shoot was Winchester 150gr. PP. My handloads were a no go and no one will buy it due to the recall. Buy a savage its a better gun.

    Won't say it is better, but more accurate
    I have only have Savage 110s
    Criticize them all you want, but they are accurate
    Add a decent stock and you are golden, Boyds for me
    Even with the factory stocks they are shooters

    Ive bought two savage axis 243s for my grandkids. Good shooters but not exceptional. The trigger that came in that model isn't the accutrigger and is about the worse trigger ive ever pulled. I don't care for accutriggers but the ones they put on there entry level guns are pathetic at best. I Put timneys in both of those guns and there good solid 1.5 inch guns and I had to do load development to get there. Ive owned a few other savage rifles. I kind of chuckle at the kool aid drinkers that want you to believe every savage is a sum moa gun. You get good and bad just like 700s and 70s and all three are a step up from most 77s. Yes savages are good shooters but theres sure nothing magical about them. What I see in them is about average shooters compared to the rest and fit and finish lags behind. If im going to buy a savage buy a new stock for it, buy a new trigger for it I might as well buck up for a Winchester 70 that will shoot right out of the box and has great fit and finish and looks a heck of a lot better. Im looking for a 600 dollar rifle not one I will have a grand invested in. Bad mouth rem if you must but come over and shoot my sps 06 one time. It will shot 1 inch at a 100 yards with the factory trigger and stock. I put it in a cdl wood stock and bedded just the recoil lug added a timney trigger and it will put loads it likes into 3/4s of a inch and im taking an average of 3 5 shot groups not one freak 3 shot group. Its probably the most consistently accurate sporter weight rifle ive ever owned and ive owned a pile of them. If I had to choose a brand of rifle that would about guarantee me moa shooting and was the best fit and finished gun and it was the 60s and 70s id pick a 700 hands down. today I would have to say a model 70 Winchester but they sure don't give them away anymore. Sorry savage fans they were a good bang for the buck back in the early 80s when they cost a heck of a lot less then the others but today there just as expensive as a 70 or 700.

    Hard to compare an Axis with a 110. Just a suggestion on my part. Hope you get what you want. I paid $600. With stock and scope you are around $1k. I did not " bad mouth" Remington, but a lot of people do.
