Why not a Ruger 77? [?]quote:Originally posted by RNettles
The issue is heat related... after 1 or 2 rounds the POI starts to drift right and low... Is there a fix or is that "Just how they are"?
I guess that the alternative is to trade up to a Remington 700 bolt... Which 700 do you recommend?
+1 to the above.quote:Originally posted by Iowegan
If I had to choose just one gun for all big game hunting needs, it would be a 270 Win.
I don't agree with your scope selection but then it's not my gun.
RNets, You guys must be "reading" too many Jack O'Conner books. Mr. .270 Supreme! Just kidding. I too had a favorite Ruger 77 in .270 for many years. Great caliber and flat shootin'. I have hunted with just about 20 or so different calibers and many years ago "settled" on 7mm Mags. I had a Browning Automatic, Winchester Model 70 and now own a Ruger MKII in 7mm Mag. The thing I really like about the 7 Mags is "bedding power" on big game. Deer, Elk, Moose, and Black Bear. Most everything I have shot out to 250 yards, fell "right" where I hit it! Great "flat" shootin' caliber and ammo is available everywhere if you choose not to reload. I finally gave up my reloading bench after 25 years of reloading and shoot only "store" bought stuff now.[8D]........Dickquote:Originally posted by RNettles
All good points... I agree with you on the .270 attributes, excellent cartridge.
Thanks again for the advice, and the use of your extensive knowledge.
