Remington 783

A lot of hunters and shooters have become very budget-conscious in the last few years, and the industry has taken notice. Wallet-friendly products have become something of the norm, and many gun owners haven’t hesitated to trade in some of their favorite bells and whistles in favor of a lower price point. But that doesn’t necessarily have to mean lower quality. After all, Ruger’s American Rifle, an affordably priced bolt-action, did just finish collecting its Golden Bullseye Award for Rifle of the Year at the 142nd NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits.

For 2013, Remington decided it was time to make a statement in the bargain-bolt-action market, and has done so with the new Model 783.

My son's rifle is a Model 710 in .270 Win. It's only downfall are the magazines (we've had problems with feeding, and new mags are cheap) but accuracy with Remington 130 gr. PSP-CL is great! The 783 should satisfy most any hunter who needs a good rifle but can't justify spending more than this. When it comes to optics, you only get what you pay for. Consider a scope like the Redfield Revolution, and put American-made glass on an American rifle.

What is the best cal. for long range with this rifle? And with that what range would be max? The price of this rifle is very appealing. Thanks

The scope on the rifle in the photos is a large objective Leupold, but the price listed is without sights, or at least without a scope. Dead on at 100 yards with iron sights is what all rifles should be capable of, but the scope is for those long range shots out past 200 yards on a white tailed deer sized target. If you want to take game at those distances beyond 200 yards, having a scope is an assurance of accuracy, and in most cases a necessity.

I have a Remington 700. The iron sights were dead on @ 100 yds. Why add the weight of a scope?
