    I love my varmint rifles....
    I have several Ruger M77VT's and do have both PPC chamberings.
    The top pic is a Ruger M77 in 222 with a Nikon Titanium scope
    Then there is a Rem 7615 in 222 a Savage 99 in 250-3000 and a Browning BLR in 223
    The bottom pic are Ruger No.1's in 270 and 220 Swift and 22-250 (Canjar single set trigger) and the top is a Browning BPCR in 40-65

    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!

    [​IMG]

    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!

    [​IMG]

    The barrel can not have much life left in it but this old J action 243 Savage sure has paid for itself!!

    [​IMG]

    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.
