Friends, I’ve caved And ordered a new rifle and caliber to play with. What is the consensus on the 77/77? Needs a new trigger, check. Has anyone sent one to Randy and recorded before and after performance? Any else?

What kind of accuracy can I expect? I reckon the ammo is the weak link, no?

I like mine...

As I said in a previous post mine shoots 5/8 to 3/4 groups at just under 3000 FPS.
I think in the future I will get a spring and sear for my own shooting enjoyment.
I am pleased with the Ruger and would like to see CCI and others come on board with new ammo,maybe even a 17 grain bullet for fun.
