Ruger accuracy

I own an older ruger m77 in 243. It is totally stock and shoots minute of deer. I would like to make it a shooter. I have asked several people and the general saying is that most guys won't work on a ruger action. Is it necessary to blue print this or would swapping the barrel and stock be sufficient? I don't want to break the bank but is putting a high end barrel on an untrued action pointless?

Re: Ruger accuracy

Re: Ruger accuracy

There are plenty of threads about this if you do a search, i.e. Blueprint Ruger Action

I have a M77 MKII in .338WM that is a shooter >>> Ruger M77 MKII Facelift and Range Report

It boils down to if the gunsmith is equipped and has the know how to work the Ruger M77 action. My gunsmith has no problem with it.

Good luck!

Negative, but will do when it is time to re-barrel.

Re: Ruger accuracy

I get many Ruger rifles in trade that "won't shoot", most will.
worth while to do a few things before bbl/true/etc.
1. replace trigger (I like Rifle Basix for Ruger)
2. bed action/float bbl.
3 re-crown bbl.

most times this helps tremendously.
