    Pros - Everything, it's a Remington 700 for crying out loud! Built like a tank.
    Cons - Nothin'
    Would You Recommend This Gun?:
    Yes
    I have used my 700 for almost 20 years. It has takes close to 30 deer. I've got a leupold on it, and it is a tack driver for sure.

    I can't think of any cons to it. I know Remington had that trigger recall a while back, but I've had no issues whatsoever. Like I said, the rifle is a tank.

    I bought my 700 back in the 90s, a BDL in .30-06. It's been a solid deer and elk gun for the past 20+ years. It has never failed me. Recoil is noticeable as it is in '06, but a recoil pad helps reduce that.

    At the time it was expensive, but the price of the 700 is coming down over the years I've noticed.
