Last Saturday I watched a 20 year old kid score a 96 with 2xes in a USBR shoot using a Remington 783 in 308. There were guns there that cost 10 times what that kid paid for his 783.
The young man let me shoot his rifle a few times and give it a once over. I have to say that for they are......a budget priced no frills rifle made for the working class.....I am impressed.
Today while paying my wish full thinking visit to the listings on gun broker.com I came across a brand new 783 Compact in 308 for $270.00 and it comes with a $40.00 rebate. That means with the $20 shipping fee figured in I'm into it for $250.00.
Anyone hunting with a 783 up there?
