Some while back I started a thread on what bullets for Boar/moose. This was with the view to using my existing rifle on said quarry as I had the chance of a trip to Canada. However for some time now I have been considering the idea of a variation for a 30 cal since my FLO is against the idea of 6.5mm for boar in England (home office guidelines state .270 or greater) which could be discussed at length, but that's another story. Since this I have been giving some thought to what rifle I should get. Now here's the thing, I like traditional rifles, elegant lines real timber, slim barrels, but with the thought I would like this rifle to be a multi use weapon for woodland stalking, driven boar (this is on my list of things to do) and the chance of moose shooting I have overcome my feelings and considering the Ruger M77 Gunsite scout. I've read the reviews, looked at them at the Midland game fair and I have come to think not only does it achieve it's design concept of a take anywhere, do anything gun but I do like it rugged looks.
My question is has anyone got one/used one? And do you guy's think I would get too much jibing of hunters if I were to turn up with one?
