Beautiful rifle in one of the best coyote, deer, antelope cartridges out there. It looks very sharp. A 100 or 105 gr. Accubond sure would be a sweet giant slayer!!

My first bolt was a tanger in 30-06. I shot it for 20 some years. I guess I got lucky in that my first bolt was very accurate. I have more rifles these days but every new rifle is judge based on the old ruger. Every ding on the stock
Represents two great decades in the woods and swamps.

I had an older m77 270 with beautiful wood. I just could not make it shoot. Bedded, free floated, re-crowned the barrel, and finally replaced the barrel with a Douglas. Got decent groups after a meticulous handloading effort with a now deceased great uncle. Killed some game with it but a nice gentleman fancied it more than I did and compensated me well enough it went home with him. Even as frustrating as it was, it taught me a lot about rifles throughout the process. I kind of miss it now. Good for you in restoring that one and good luck with it this fall.
