I have a Model 77 Stainless Steel, Composite Stock, 3x9 Leopold in 30.06. It is equal to or better than the 6 Winchester and Remington bolt actions / semi's I've owned. Sweet action. Indestructible. Very accurate for me out to 500 yards.

I got to see one at Sportsman's Warehouse. Did not touch, bad mistake - I would have purchased it, if I touched it. The next day, it was sold!

Ever shot an m77 mark II. Probably not because honestly that is the best bolt gun I have ever fired. I don't own one because nobody gets rid of them so I can't buy one used. I'm too poor for a new one and I don't trust buying online anyways.

Yes. Less than impressed. But i can say that about a lot of current production bolt guns winchester and remington included.

there was a write up about it in shooting times.

what do you all think? IMHO im ready to buy. just need to choose a caliber
It looks good. The classic 1903 Springfield design.

The price is good too. About half of what a Remington would cost.

And it is ready to be drilled and tapped in the usual way.

These are the most popular calibres too -- 243, 308, 270, and 30-06 in order of increasing power.

I think the 10/22 is Ruger's best rifle design.

I handled one a few days ago and it was all I could do not to puke all over the counter. Sorry but.....Fisher Price called and wanted their plastic back. Save your cash and buy something that has at least a couple ounces of steel in it.
