Anybody got an opinion on this rifle? im set to meet up with a guy tomorrow to buy his. says its new in box, looks really nice. from the reading ive done nobody really appears to have a complaint about it. can anyone with personal experience vouch for that? its chambered in 22-250.

thanks,

Tyler.

at least with 22-250 you should be able to find ammo for it. Seems to be one of the few still on the shelves at most places I've been.

most places i shop are fairly big block, 9mm, .223 and .22lr are the only real damaged calibers so far. not that im concerned about finding 22-250 right now anyhow, ive still got a fair amount i kept from selling me last 22-250.

I don't trust anyone. NIB is just as easily a sales line as the truth. The .22-250 is prone to getting the barrel shot out quickly even if allowed to cool between shoots. Someone shooting rapid fire in a sage rat field can burn up a barrel in a day or two. I would suggest you have the barrel borescoped before you buy it. The only exception to that rule would be if I knew the guy and trusted him, or the price was low enough that if I had to rebarrel I came out even on the deal.

With that said, they are nice rifles. Accuracy with a Ruger can be more hit and miss more so than compared to a Remington or a Savage, but it should be acceptable.

ill definitely be atleast removing the bolt and looking into daylight through the bore. checking for GSR, fresh cleaning oil ect. i wouldnt consider the price LOW, but i feel like id be getting a fair deal. im aware that 22-250 can be a damaging cartridge, as ive owned one before. im more or less looking for a direct opinion on the MKII in this caliber and/or recommendations.

I have one of these in a 223 caliber, Its a better gun than most shooters. I shoot a lot and can put 5 rounds in a quarter at 100yards with this rifle. Its the most accurate rifle I have ever owned.
When you look up the definition of Tack Driver in the dictionary, It should say Ruger M77 Mark II

Great Rifle

I picked up one in 25-06 last year on here and it's a good rifle. I'm still playing with loads but got it down to around 1moa. Going to bed the action and see if that helps
