1. Remington 783 Review

The Remington 783 is a domestic bolt action hunting rifle assembled by Remington. This rifle was launched in 2013 and includes new qualities and is a modern rifle. The Remington 783 is an entirely new design, and it has nothing or petite in common with the Remington 700.

General design

The rifle has new design features as a modifiable crossfire trigger, with an additional finger safety in the trigger blade. The modifying of the trigger pull is able within 2.5 to 5 Lbs. To minimize the recoil, a gel-filled pad has been put in. The little ejection dock also makes the receiver very firm.

The bolt has two lugs and is free from the receiver using a switch button on its left side; the lock can be gotten rid of with the safety on. The two location security is situated on the right side of the bolt and moved with a thumb switch button.

The Accuracy

The accuracy of the Model 783 was good with all of the loads checked. The Central ammunition did almost well, still around under an inch and a half. In the nine test groups, three of the groups were under an inch, and another of the Hornady group was just over an inch. The smallest group provided with the Central ammunition was 1.22 inches, and the worst group was only 1.79 inches. There’s no doubt that the Remington 783 can shoot better than its price suggests.

Two extra keys to accuracy are a good barrel and light, clean trigger. The magnum contour, 22-inch, button-rifled barrel fits into the action with a barrel nut.

Some salient features

The detachable magazine box is steel.  It provides the gun with a real click. Besides, the Remington 783’s trigger is modifiable.  

The stock is artificial and has an ergonomic appeal with both the trigger safety. It is stuck to the barreled action with two screws that go through columns to guarantee a free-floated barrel. And, to reduce the recoil, a Super Cell recoil pad is a criterion feature. The Remington 783 also has an elite cylinder-shaped receiver with an ejection port. Both features add the firmness of the action.


This rifle is rated by online shops “not only reasonable but also practical.” A Remington 783 is just around $299 to $399. It’s worth a try, isn’t it?

General design

The Remington 700 action was designed for the mass production. It is an operated bolt-action by hands with two dual-purpose lugs. The bolt face is nice, entirely surrounding the base of the cartridge, The puller is a C-clip lying within the bolt face. The evictor is a plunger on the bolt face activated by a coil spring, and the receiver is crushed from round steel.

The Accuracy

The Remington 700 is claimed that it had the greatest out-of-the-box accuracy of any contemporary rifles.

After some researches and a few rounds, I found that, like most people have claimed, the Remington 700 produced its best groups with 168-grain bullets. I decided to bring in the usual Superformance, A-Max rounds and Z-Max in 168- grain bullet weight and lead to the range.

The results did not let me down. My best group was a 5-shot 100-yard, and almost every stuff that I checked brought 100-yard groups smaller than one inch.

Some outstanding features

Not a rifle you’re going to pack up and down. Controls are well-placed and easy to handle. Also, the simplicity of this bolt action has shown entirely reliable, and it has shot everything I’ve fed.


In comparison with its innovate version 783, the model 700 has a much more high price (although it’s the mass production). An average cost for a 700 is approximate $419; the highest price is $2,399.

The Remington 783 did not concede accuracy for the price. It has a one-piece cylinder-shaped receiver and a small injection port. The accuracy is improved thanks to more mass and firmness going through the receiver.

However, the model 700 is still popular because of the largest aftermarket support. The action is a fresh start for a long-range build.

Here is a list of pros and cons of two rifles summarized by my personal experiences:


Model 783

  •    Competitive price
  •    Detachable steel magazine
  •    Active SuperCell recoil pad
  •    Model 783 admits two Model 700 opposite bases

Model 700

  •    Has a very high-speed lock time of 3.3 milliseconds
  •    Has an excellent, crisp trigger
  •    The barrels were held to a very tight patience, and the bolt design helps keep the cartridge stay focused in the chamber
  •    Has a new exciting cartridge: the 7mm Remington Magnum


Model 783

  •    The barrel is thin and heats up quickly
  •    The front is less satisfactory, with odd angles and non-use grip panels

Model 700

  •    Takes more time to remove and replace the firing pin
  •    The price is relatively picky for most of the hunters


It is rather difficult to compare the Model 783 to the Model 700 merely because one is not meant to replace the other. Meanwhile, every model serves their owner’s specific purposes and budget. Thus, we believe that you will enjoy this brief description and comparison. Now go out, and make your hunt a legend!
