Ruger M77
 
I just bought a Ruger M77 (not the hawkeye) in a .308 winchester. Its a black synthetic stock with a stainless barrel. Anyone have one of these? any info on what to expect? Pros & Cons? Thanks

I had a M77V in 308 that my ex-wife bought me some 30 years ago. I liked it it shot well and was a lot of fun

Thats good to hear. The only thing that I don't care for is the three position safety. It's not like the older rugers with the tang safety, but other than that it looks like a sweet little shooter

i have one in 280 and i like it alot . it is fairly accurate and everytime i pull the trigger it goes bang . usually when i carry it in the woods i see deer ,another nice feature !! the stainless is very durable .

take it out and enjoy !!

Lets talk ammo, for you guys that have had one of these... Whats the best (factory) rounds to shoot out of these?

I did not shoot factory ammo I reloaded the same that I reload now 168gr HPBT except I use RL-15 powder instead of BL-c2

Depends on what you are using it for and what your particular rifle likes. The good news is that in .308 you should be able to find an appropriate factory loading to kill evrything from mice to moose. There is also great Match ammo factory loaded by Federal and Black hills as well as many others.
