Tough dilemma. This is just opinion. I prefer bolt rifles over gas guns. I know todays black rifles are capable of amazing accuracy. Up until last year I kept my distance from Ruger's also. My fault.
I recently worked with a model 77 like the one pictured but in .220 Swift. The owner, my boss, wanted me to sight it in for 250yds using Hornady 40gn Moly V-Max bullets. I was surprised when it printed .3 & .4" groups at 100yds with factory fodder. He also wanted me to reload for it but I advised him as long as it will shoot factory ammo like that he didn't need reloads. He's the type that gets 3-5 boxes when he buys a rifle and keeps them for 10 years. He still had 3 boxes from the original purchase.
Sorry so long winded but if push came to shove and I had to pick ONE, it would be the Ruger. Bolt man at heart.
