Shot one at our club some years ago and it's the only one I've ever handled. SS/Laminated stock, heavy barrel and IIRC, Leupold varmint scope?
The guy was having fits over it, because regardless of the ammo used, it wouldn't group to suit him. Trigger job, barrel floated and acion bedded. Forget how much $$$ he in it at that point, but he was extremely upset with it.
I fired one 5 shot group, rested @ 100 yards and recollect they went into about an inch? Asked him if he'd shot it much before he spent all that extra money on it and he said no, why would I?
Don't know about anyone else, but I shoot a "new" rifle a good bit, before I get too excited about monkeying with it? Now and then one shoots 'bout like it oughta, right from the get-go.
Ruger 77/22s and mags are great looking rifles, but to be honest, I've heard more complaints about their accuracy over the years, than I've heard guys excited about how well they shoot?
