    Ruger 77 in .25-06 Remington

    Ruger Model 77 with tang safety.

    This rifle is in excellent condition, blueing nearly 100%. Walnut stock hardly marked. Very good bore, shiny and with good rifling. Some scratches to the finish on the floorplate.
    Shoots the 117g factory well, and will put handloaded 100 grainers into an inch. Has a nice trigger too.
    Feeds slick and extracts positively.
    The older Rugers came with a medium weight barrel with their magnum contour in .25-06, so the rifle is not lightweight, (but it's not a heavy/bull barrel.)

    If you like the Rugers with the tang safety this is a good one. I have intended to use it as a .25-06 until I got round to rebarreling it to something exotic, but I probably won't.

    .25-06 is probably the best specialist red deer cartridge I can think of. 117 grain at 3050 fps, 100 grain bullet at 3300fps or an 80 grain TTSX at over 3500fps.

    Also comes with the Ruger scope rings included. (Proper rings that fit the slots in the dovetailed receiver)

    $800.00

    Very very nice indeed and piques my Ruger fascination... must look away

    Is it a 22" or 24" barrel? Scope with it? No must stop looking...

    Has a 24 inch barrel.
    The scope on it in the photo is an old Tasco 4 x 40mm.

    Would entertain offers of a swap. Something interesting...
    I am a sucker for 7x57's. Or a .22-250. Or old lever actions.
