Added some new bottom metal to my Ruger 77 .243

Since my Ruger ranch project didn't work out like I planned I decided to used the bottom metal I got for it on an old Model 77 MKII. Had to do a little creative cutting but it came out very nice!

    It is effectively a Ruger Gunsite scout rifle in 243 Winchester... Also known as awesome.

    Hmm... That could work on my Frontier. Might be worth saving some pennies
