Re: Beginner here with several questions

Sorry for the confusion...I was not calling either of those systems odd...I was calling the ruger style of scope mounting odd as in that it does not use bases, only rings that clamp to it.

Re: Beginner here with several questions

Welcome to the board. Im new here also and Its a great place to learn from. You have lots of questions just as I do....this is a great place to have them answered.

I have been building a 1000yd gun from a Rem Mod 700 SPS in 300WSM and so far its doing pretty good. I'll tell you now that you get what you pay for in this type of stuff so spend the money once and be happy instead of trying to get by cheap and ending up having to re-do it and spend more money.

BASES AND RINGS:
I bought a Nightforce one piece base with 20MOA built in.....yes they are expensive, but its worth it.

I am using Burris Xtreme Heavy Tactical rings on this rifle and I just bought another set today for a different rifle. They are very good Rings and will cost about $60-$70 dollars and well worth it.

Good luck

Re: Beginner here with several questions

Thanks for all the help and info guys. Keep it coming!

Anybody have any idea on the price to have that list of things I mentioned done? Can a trigger job actually be done on the ruger Mk II or will I have to buy a new trigger?

Thanks

Daniel

Welcome to LRH and enjoy!

Yes, it can be done. If you google it, there are successful DIY instructions if you are mechanically inclined and is willing to take the time. Gunsmiths can also tune it for you.

I have a Ruger M77 MKII in .338 WM and opted for aftermarket trigger and did it myself ... it took me <30 minutes. I used spec-tech trigger ...

standard triggers



If I do my part, here's how she shoots with factory ammo (Hornady 225gr SST) ...



Good luck and happy safe shooting/hunting!
