Re: Ruger M77 Tang safety. Uncanny accuracy
My 2 stainless skeletons will stay just like they are, which is how they came from the factory. The 7mm-08 was my first bolt-action deer rifle when I was about 12. Dad bought it brand new for me for Christmas that year. That was 15 years ago. That thing loves the 139gr Hornady SST's. I just loaded up some 140gr Accubonds to try in it, but always seem to forget to take it to the range with me. LOL It still has the old Tasco World Class 3-9x50 sitting on top of it, back when Tasco was still decent scopes.
Got it's big brother (7mm RemMag) when I was working at the outdoors store 11 years ago. Both are nasty accurate. I believe the 7Mag was made somewhere around the same time frame as the 7mm-08. I think I remember calling the Ruger with the S/N to find a mfg date. But that's been so long ago that I can't remember specifics.
Either way, both of them will stay in their original factory form, b/c they are rarity these days, and are both tack-drivers. Even though the actions would make great platforms to build a couple customs off of.
