Edit: yes I know the P series pistol and older 77s were not known for accuracy.

There are not any new owners. They just renamed the investment group The Remington Group. It was the Freedom Group, and originally Cerberus.

Hasnít that Gen 2 5R been around for a while? I bought one several months ago and had been eyeing them for a year or so.

A nice rig Buzzsaw. I still like a Remington 700. It is easy to do lots of good stuff with one. If Rem only made the 5r milspec in left hand I would already own one in 300Win mag.

Ruger M77 lines are a total piles of sizz, always has been and will be.... Ruger makes a great revolvers and pretty much all their .22 thats it..... The RPR is serviceable if I was forced to use one.....

That bolt handle on the Remington has got to go..... looks like the Mohawk and 700 bolts had sex and that was it ugly baby....

Only real issue I've seem with a Ruger 77 is a terrible trigger. That can be corrected, and when it is, they often shoot well.

optic mounting system and rings are a deal killer and were terrible idea to begin with....... the controlled round feed is good... I guess

I forgot about control feed, I am not a fan, and do not own any control round feed actions.
