So i grabbed a m77 Ruger 243 with the tang safe. It has Timney trigger which is very crisp and light. I love the gun, Killed fox and Groundhogs already. I got a mix of ammo with it Core Lokt, Winchester Power Points and Fed Fusion. Its sighted in with the 80gr core lokt and shoots 1 inch group at 100, 1/2 inch high now. My question is what kind of accuracy can I expect out of this gun. My concern is that its a light weight short barrel. It measure 19.25 from muzzle to receiver. I plan on using it more for deer but also want it to be as accurate for longer ranges. I d like to stretch this one out and see what it will do but Im limited in funds. Unfortunely. But its something to start with anyway. Eventually Id like to hand load and get a Real nice scope but for now the Ole redfield 5 Star is staying true. Considered selling my Bull Barell AR to get funds but I decided not too. Thanks for the help guys.
