Re: Ruger M77 ???
First time cleaning the barrel, or first time taking it apart to clean the action? My thoughts are two fold. First, if you are cleaning the barrel for the first time, it has to settle back in to where it was before with a fouled barrel. The second part is that you don't have the actions screws torqued to the original factory specs and it is not liking the new seat in the stock. This would be a good time for a bedding job and trigger work.
