    Hi,
    over the past 20 years have bought and sold a 243, been given a 243 and use a 7x57. No issues with any of them.

    Hi buddy. I love mine. Have it in .308. Have shot a few different types of rifle and they are as good as any other I have used. Never had problems. There are a lot of haters out there but honestly cannot see why. Much prettier guns out there but as a workhorse they are great. What calibre are you looking at? T

    Hurf. I have owned Ruger MKIIs in 223, 22-250, 243, 25-06 & 260 Rem and shot them exclusively with factory ammunition. I shot my first roe buck with the 22-250 and I shot a number of red deer with the 243. 25-06 and 260 Rem. However I don't own any of them now. The rifles I have now are in my gallery. The .243/25-06/260 were fine for shooting red deer in the chest at moderate ranges once the triggers had been worked on, however I struggled with the .25-06 to get a group that was small enough for shooting roe deer, so I got rid of it. I don't know how the 25-06 would have performed had I reloaded for it.

    I liked the robust 3 position safety and the integral scope mounts. When I bought them, they were all I could afford and traded in without problems against the next one.

    A lot depends what you want to shoot with your Ruger MK II, what range and how much pressure you are under to get a result. The options for upgrading them are fairly limited, although some stocks are available.

    Regards JCS

    Something like a 243 or perhaps a slower quarter bore as I'll be shooting over shorter ranges I'll just have to see whats out there. Thanks for your comments, as some have said there are mixed reports over them the trigger seems to attract a fair few comments. I'll just have to try them and see what they feel like.
    regards

    I got Alex Dalgleish to reduce the trigger pull on the ones I got. I seem to remember that out of the box the .25-06 trigger pull was 9lb. It didn't take a lot of effort for Alex to get it down to about 3lbs. Regards JCS

    I had one in 7x57 many years ago, it was a bit 'agricultural' in the trigger department, but I changed that for a Timney after a while. Apart from that it was an OK , no frills rifle that killed everything it was pointed at. No complaints really.
