Hi Pete,

I have to agree with Big Lou in asking what your shooting off, how your possitioning on the bench, what size groups your pullin down now etc, some rugers respond to having the barrel completly freefloated (like mine) others prefer to have a pressure pad at the forend. 3/4 inch groups are indeed possible, and I've read on another post that with piller bedding that 1/4 inch groups can be had. Now I assume that this was with the rifle completely locked down. my 77/17 will hold 5/8 to 3/4 if I do my part. the barrel is freefloated completely, and this afternoon I pulled it all down and piller bedded the action. the trigger has been reworked also. I'm very ancious to see how it shoots after the bedding has cured.... every project needs to be aproched with a thought out plan and aproched in steps, that way, when something doesn't go the way it was intended you can undo it instead of having 4 or 5 things to try and figure out which caused the problem.

don't know if any of this helped or not,
