    I consider the M77VT haevy for a walking varminter.
    I also have said many times that the M77VT is the best for the money varmint rifle as they used to be easily found for $400-425. Maybe I told too many people!
    I have several including in both PPC calibers and have bought and sold a fair share and all of them shot well, very well for a gun straight from the factory.

    I am a deal shopper.. I am always on the lookout for a bargain on good glass.
    My M77VT rifles have a strange assortment og glass found at a bargain.
    I have a Nikon Titanium, Burris Mr T, Leupold 6.5-20, and a Leupold 12X.
    If I was buying new and considering the way I hunt woodchucks I would probably get the 12X.
