Those are some fine Rugers you guys have there! My first centerfire was a M-77V in 22-250...regret selling it but times where tuff.
The lite little M77 in 243 got me through a few years till I talked myself into building an 8 twist 22-250 out of it. Now it looks like this.
Had a VT in 223 that was my go to doggin gun in the late 90s/early 00s but sold it to a rookie dogger last year. I put over 6000 rounds through it and he still dont miss much with it. Its little brother the little 77-22 does a great job on the close dogs!
The most used varminter these days is a little 527 CZ in 223. It may not have a big fat barrel on it but it sure shoots like it does!
The barrel can not have much life left in it but this old J action 243 Savage sure has paid for itself!!
A couple of other J action Savages that get used from time to time.
Last but not least is an old left handed Tacticle thats currently fitted with a 204 barrel.
