    Hello,

    I have only had luck with Ruger M77's and No.1's with 175 grain bullets. 139, 140 and 145 would not group on paper well for me. 3 to 4 inch groups. The 175 grain offerings would get me about 1.5 inches at 100. While that is acceptable for hunting, I want to shoot lighter bullets for longer range. We both know that the 175 bullet is a great round with proven performance.

    I hope that my Winchester will allow me the opportunity to load some of the lighter bullets. I have nothing bad to say about Ruger products. I own several and they are great performers but I think the 7x57 chambers are deeper and require longer bullets for accuracy.

    What have you seen in your experiences?

    I am waiting on rings and bases for my featherweight so I can start the process with seeing what it likes.

    Bill

    Hi Bill,
    Just wanted to get your opinion and findings on the M77. I use one in .300Win Mag. Its a working rifle for sure, with no frills. just wanted to know what its capabilities are on the accuracy front.

    Take care,
    Marius
