Anyway, my question is: Can the Ruger be headspaced and trued to make an accurate 500-800 yard deer/elk rifle? I already have a MKII in 25-06, but it is completely stock and I havent ever tried to look into customizing it. Ill also be looking into getting a new stock for it, and are there good options for it? Since it's not as popular as a Rem 700 or Savage 110.
Many thanks for any opinions
The short answer is yes, it can be trued (blueprinted). The challenge is the tooling/fixture ... checkout this thread ...

I have one in .338 WM and currently fine tuning a load for 600 yards with .225gr NAB and 73.5gr H4831SC ...

Good luck!

Thanks for the input guys, I do appreciate it. I figured out it's actuall a Hawkeye, not an MKII. That doesn't change anything does it? It all looked the same to me
