Re: ruger action ok?????

I have a ruger m77 mark 2 in a 220 swift that I just shipped off to pac nor to get a new barrel. It cost 580 for barrel, chamber, squaring, lapping lugs and fitting. I had them do the same to a 270 win in a mr-7 action and that rifle shoot great out to 800+ yds with a good hand load. Hope this helps

Re: ruger action ok?????

I think #1 and 77 work is completely different they have virtually nothing in common.

I think you will find some of the resistance to guys wanting to build on them are:

The actions are cast and may machine a little different than "normal"

There are less after market triggers, bases, rings and so on...rem is like a small block chevy with every aftermarket part on the planet available.

The bolt to action tolerances are not as good as some other makers and may be harder to correct.

the claw extractors put pressure on the case head and can cant cases that don't perfectly fit the chamber. That is more of a problem if your shooting factory ammo.

With less demand for blueprinting them a lot of smiths may not have the jigs make up to true them and will not recoup that time/cost in doing a couple a year.

If your talking the older tang safety models you get into more bedding/stock problems. I like those better than the mark II's but they are just not going to be a 1000 yard gun without a LOT more work.

This is obviously just my .0000002 cents so......
