Re: what do you think of the ruger m77?

if they didnt make factory barrels 1 in 9 then i dont think it is, the guy said it was faster than 1 in 12 which i figured was stock, at least i think it is stock, it says 220 swift stamped on the left side of the barrel by the reciever, also i really dont think i can test fire it, is that really common? none of the rifles either my dad or i have bought were test fired. is there any other way to look at it, if it is really common to test fire rifles i'll ask to but there's not any optics on it and theres not any local ranges so i guess.... thanks for replying so much,

Go out and find a place to shoot that is the only way your going to hit stuff at long range, boresights in my opinion are a waste of money you can usally get fairly close with out one, get a rangefinder, know the ballistics of your gun, holdovers generally dont work very well when shooting past 300, ask to shoot that rifle, if he has a problem with it, it might be because its shot out, I have a busnell banner 6-18, its not a bad scope, but your going to be alot happier with a nikon/weaver/sightron.
