All the 77s I've owned had trigger issues. I've got a Savage in .300 WM and it's very accurate.

I don't think there is any difference dimensionally in the 5.56 and .223 rounds. Reloading data
is the same. At least for U.S. ammo.Chambers are a different matter. The 5.56 military rifles

They've killed a lot of deer around here. I don't think they're the best casual plinking rifle,

I had a Glenfield version, a good rifle. Not too much you can do for one except maybe put a
