Yesterday I took my new Ruger Stainless Laminate 77/17 out along with a couple of 22 centerfires. At 100 yards I got 1/2 to 3/4 inch from my centerfires and 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 from my 77/17. I used both Hornady and CCI. Both grouped poorly. I am leaving for a prarie rat hunt on Wed. Please Help!!!

Posm; Tough luck for sure. A couple of questions; How new is this Ruger? How much have you shot it?

Ruger 77's generally shoot much better than what you are reporting. However the triggers can be a little raspy if you are not used to them. They can be smoothed, but you may not time before you leave.

I am wondering if you maybe you need to spend more time shooting just the 77/17 to get used to the feel. .17HMR ammo may be hard to come in your area, but I would suggest you take only the 77/17 to the range and get used to it. You already have the confidence to do well with the .22 centerfires.

Good Luck on your hunt and let us know how you do with the rifle and the prairie dogs .

Thanks Fullchoke

If the rifle was at 1 or 1 1/2 inches I would think it might be me. I have a gun smith that I will put on it. I suspect it might be a bedding problem.
The trigger is rough but not bad.

You might want to check out a thread in the "Ruger-Other" forum titled '77/22 Junk!' for some things to check.
Good Luck,
