I recently bought a remington 798 in 3oo win mag. I must say I am impressed with it. I mounted a 3x9 leupold scope on it and I can easily shoot 1 inch groups. At first the mauser action seemed a little stiff but after shooting almost 200 rounds through it ..it is cycling just like a mauser action should. The laminated stock is impressive. I would highly recommend the 798. The 798 is about the same price as a model 700 but i find it to be a much more interesting piece.
