Ruger 77/44 range report

I took my Ruger 77/44 to my the family range today. After installing the Jard trigger Wednesday this handy little carbine is just that much more fun to shoot. My first group from 50 yards was low and left.

After scope adjustment I moved to the hundred yard steel. Actually I placed it at a lasered 110 yards. I didn't feel like moving it because it is heavy.

Four rounds are the divots.
The load was Mag Tech 240gr JSP. All shooting was done from kneeling with the gun rested on a field expedient type rest. About 60 degrees no wind.

    Sounds like a fun gun to shoot. Open sights or glass?

    Glass. It wears a Swift 1.5-4.5X32 with a donut over duplex reticle. Super fast to pick up, not so super for pinpoint precision.

    Many many different loads for a .44 Mag out there, both factory and reloading data. Looks like you are off to a good start.

    Nice work. I kick myself for passing up a good deal on a 77/44 a few years ago:bang: have been wanting one ever since.

    With sighted in I have a primary rifle, a secondary rifle and a backup rifle. This 77/44 will get blooded this year.
    Sake, you are right to be kicking yourself.
