Hello there it’s my first post here. I recently purchased a Remington 783 varmint with the laminate stock, 26” heavy barrel chambered in 223 Remington. This rifle sat on the shelf at my lgs for months and I finally jumped on it. I figured it would be a good truck rifle and a workhorse varmint rig.
I started with the rifle with some initial load development and it shot good but I felt it could produce better results so I bedded the rifle and adjusted the factory trigger down to 18 ounces consistently. I headed back to the range and boy did I luck into a tack driver. This rifle shot every load under 1/2 inch, some down in the 1/4 inch range. This rifle is not fussy at all for loads or cleaning regimen, I didn’t clean it until 100 rounds down the pipe with no significant loss in accuracy.
If you happen across one of these rifles don’t hesitate to pick it up they’re a great rifle at a great price I gave $450 for mine otd. I think the 783 is a hidden gem that gets lumped in with other budget guns and they don’t deserve that rep.
