[5 of 5 Stars!]Really like this rifle and surpassed my expectantions as far as accuracy and build. Mounted a Redfield hunter Revenge 4x12 Accuranger with Leupold Q/R rings on Weaver bases ( takes 2 front scope bases for Rem. 700 ). Sighted it in @ 25 yrds. With 4 or 5 shots and put 2 shots @ 100 yrds. 1.8 inches high to be zero @ 200 yrds ( per Redfield so the accuranger will work ) and used Hornady Whitetail 150 grn. JSP.
This turned out to be a deadly combonation. I was amazed at the accuracy and lock-up of this bolt gun. Remington really did a good job on this rifle, making up for the junk of the model 770. They won their reputation back with this one. If your looking for a economical priced rifle that is as accurate as the 700 and saving a few bucks in the process, this is it. I looked at the Ruger American rifle but glad I made the right decission with 783 in 30-06. The difference is obviouse between the 700 and 783 its just an economical version.
You wont regret your purchase, youll be as pleasently suprised as I.

[5 of 5 Stars!]Remington does it again with the 783 in one of my favorite and historic, classic rounds that never let's me down. Mounted a Redfield scope on her and we went to town. Went hunting in Montana with her and tremendous success. A keeper! In God We Trust!Show More Reviews...
