Has anyone had any experience with this gun? Just curious about the cheap alternative to a 700, btw there should be bumper stickers or magnets or w/e for the site, I'd put one on my truck.

I haven't shot them - I've only held them, and they feel like holding a hardened dog turd and sorrow.

Hahaha like I said I was just curious about them, personally I'd rather spend a few extra bucks on something timetested like the 700

If your local store has one in stock, pick it up and cycle the action. I did because I was thinking about buying one for $350 as opposed to $550 for the SPS Tactical, and the moment I looked at how skinny the bolt handle was, and just how gritty the cycling was I knew it would be better to spring the extra couple bucks for something nice.

You'd be better off finding a used ADL or BDL..

this is the second time remington has done a redo of the 700 action. anyone remember the 710? supposedly it had less moving parts than the 700 so less problems, right? wrong. i remember there being at least one recall and maybe more. dont fix if it if it aint broke. just go for a used 700 at the least. you get what you pay for
