I can tell you about the Ruger 77, I am not a Ruger fan although my son has a Ruger 77 that we rebarreled to 7mm 08 and it shoots sub moa. It was originally .243win but he needed something with a little more oomph for big game hunting. The 7mm08 fit the bill quite nicely. About the Rem 700 action, I've heard nothing but glowing reports of this and I wouldn't hesitate to buy one if I came across a good one.
Hope this helps,
Keep your groups tight.
Trooper

I have fired both weapons and would recomend either one. I kind of favor the Ruger though. They make one-hell-of-gun for the money. Both are very accurate. There are NO cons....only pros for both.

The only problem I have ever had with Ruger is their Higher caliber rifles(300, 338, ect) tend to have a lot of barrel jump due to their short combs.
The only scope hit I ever took was off my 300win Mag first shot taught me to hold it down!!!

Hello,
 I have fired both of these models in 7mm Remington Mag. both are excellent rifles and very accurate. It has been notede by many expert shooters that the make of the rifle is not as important as the fit of the rifle to the shooter. I have read articles refering to this in numerous magazines.
 I can say that the Remington model 700 fits me well and I own 2 of them and shoot very accurately with them.
I would suggest seeking a reputable gunsmith to help in fitting any rifle to the shooter, if possible to try both at the range. Then make a better educated decision from that rather than asking what works for others.
You may also want to look at the range for direction in obtaining correct fit, many gun ranges have clubs that have members that are well educated and happy to help in these matters.
 Hope this helps.

the main difference is that the trigger on the ruger is very stiff and is unadjustable while the remington has a trigger that can easly be adjusted to your liking

I own and shoot several calibers from both manufacturers. My experience is that the Remingtons are more accurate and have better triggers. All things being equal I would buy the Remington. I will not give up the Rugers I have however.

My first gun was a savage single shot 20 gauge, I learned to shoot it as fast as a pump gun,  though i did chip a few teeth............  the most accurate little rifle I ever owned was a savage bolt action 30/30  1/2 inch groups at 10-yards( or something like that) and deadly on grouse heads.   but i was known to exaggerate as a kid.     Also had a model 110 338 with a BEC 3x9x50 great on the black bears around Valdez except whenever I tried a quick follow up shot as they ran across a snow slide it usually ejected all the shells but maybe that was from holding on to the side of a mountain and falling in the snow to much.......... but I loved them all savage has really come a long way .

I have a Ruger 77 MkII in 6.5 x 55SE. The factory trigger was rediculous as in right off the scale, so I replaced it. Then I had to free float the barrell to get it to shoot acurately. At this point, it is a fine shooter. On the other hand I also have a Tikka 695 in 30-06, and it shoots at least as well with no modifications. The bolt is as smooth as silk, and the trigger is adjustable although it came at a crisp 3 1/2 lbs...perfect for me. If I had to choose between the Remington and the Ruger, I'd likely go with the Remington.

Big John,
I myself am a die-hard Remington fan although i do have a couple Rugers. The Remingtons are a better choice (my opinion only) for a couple of reasons, my biggest gripe is scope mounts, just remeber Ruger machines their own intergral mounts to the top of the reciever, and they are wonderful, but they want $60 for a set of rings and bases for a rifle. Now im not saying there arent any aftermarket rings and bases out there because there out there and seem to be worthy for well under $60 but think of this, can you get your mounts local or are you going to have to order a set and pay shipping?  My second complaint is with their triggers. All of my Rugers have had atrocious triggers, all very heavy one was completely off the scale, they are in most cases adjustable but you have to change the springs which is not hard at all. Now Remingtons on the other hand, triggers are adjustable with screws and rings and bases are easier to find local and in most cases cheaper. Accuracy is about the same on both. Remingtons seem to be alittle more picky about ammo especially in factory stuff, but if you reload its not a problem. I hope this helps in your decision and rember this is only my opinion and my opinion only!!
