Questions about my 77/17

I couldn't stand it any more, I finally got a ruger 77/17 vmbbz. I have just a few questions.

1. What scopes are you guys using on the 17 hmr? I don't mind spending the money to get a good scope, but I didn't want to get more scope than is necessary.

2. Are the ruger mounts any good? What do you recommend?

3. I would like to lighten the trigger pull. What replacement sear or sear/spring kit do you recommend? Something drop in would be nice.

4. Do bipods like the Harris scratch the stock where they attach to the sling swivel?

If these questions have already been answered, just direct me to a thread.

I have a Harris bipod on my Ruger VMBBZ, i've checked it for scratches and havent found any. Just make sure its done up properly and you shouldnt have a problem.
A good scope for the 17HMR is a Hawke scope from Deben in the UK! I had a Hawke Nite-Eye 6.5-20x50 it just about fits with Ruger High Mounts! nice and fine Mil-Dot reticle (illuminated on the Nite-Eyes!) Alot of scope for £135 - £150

Safe Shooting!
