I have two Ruger M77s and another one on the way. They are extremely good rifles, with the Mauser action you can't get much stronger than that. My Rugers on in .30-06 and .270 and the one coming is a 6.5 Swede. I have a Remington in .308. You can't go wrong with a Ruger and a .308 is a very good round in the first place.

all i know is its a superb deer rifle, very accurate, and i dont know why so many people bash it about being unnaccurate because mine is the exact opposite...... but then again with ruger i have heard you either have a tack driver or it wont shoot a pattern for anything
