Despite their reputation I decided to give the ruger a run for its money. I got a complete second hand set up at a very good price. The rifle is in mint condition and it has Kahles glass on the top. The 2.5 inch spread I got at 100m from Norma 100gr was a little disappointing though not a complete surprise but before I start working up the handloads I want to find factory ammo that shoots a half decent group.
I have a good amount of experience so it has had a thorough check over before firing (the quirky bedding screws and all the other mounts etc..).
I have heard all the comments before from folk who don't like the M77s so I am just looking for some advice from those of you who have found a winning recipe!
