    Nooooooooooooooooo! He will hate a 770, probably the worst built rifle i have ever handled, a norinco is better.

    Seriously save another couple hundy and get a howa, vanguard, savage, marlin etc.

    I promise you will regret getting a 770!

    Yep, 700 or Model 7, the older models like 788 are good too, so basically everything else is good except the 770 POS!

    Rather get a decent second hand rifle than a new 770.

    I agree with all above I have a Model 700 and its smooth and crisp, Ive shot with my mates 770 and its a pig of a thing would rather a lee enfield with open sights..Honestly I would.
    some good .270's come up on trade me all the time, Remington 700, Tikka t3, savage...buy right the first time and spend just a little bit more money
    Trade me listings that may be of interest
    Listing #: 621842921 scope and ammo
    Listing #: 620386807 B&C CDL wood stock and flutted barrel
    Listing #: 619666757 bushnell scope
    Listing #: 619644289 new
    Listing #: 622275689 cheap (I have an 1986 model similar to this that shoots great!!!)

    Agreed by me too - they will still shoot deer, but just not worth the potential hassles

    I didn't use a rest, the second shot was to only support Jazz and encourage her.
