Today is a great day! I am now the proud owner of a Ruger M77 MKII chambered in .375 H&H. I managed to find a brand new and still in the box for an unbeliveable low price of $1,100 dollars. The guy I got it from had three of the same model in 375 and and three in 416. Not exactly sure how he came about having them but I am sure he never checked on their relative worth. I tried to pick up a matching 416 but he had already promised them to others. I know this post doesn't lead into much of a discussion. I just wanted to brag a little about my good fortune.

Well done, a very nice rifle for a factory item. A damn shame ruger dropped it. A new one in Oz, if you could find it would set you back about $3K.

I also have one and I wouldn't trade it for anything. Clover leaf at 100 yards with 300 grain handloads. I just added a RSM 458 Lott and I think this on may be the all time favorite. The biggest mistake Ruger ever did was to stop production on this rifle

Headed to the range this weekend to through a few bullets through it. I haven't decided if I'm going to put a scope on it or not. The from bead on the fixed site is a little hard to see. If I leave the scope off I think I will have to replace the front site. I have read a lot about stock cracks on this gun and folks recommend glass bedding to prevent it. Any recommendations on a good gunsmith will be appreciated.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?
