This is my new (to me) Ruger Model 77 Mark II in .243. I was offered the gun at a very fair price, but it hurts my soul to pay asking price for anything. After some wheeling and dealing, I ended up with it. I got it for my daughter and grandsons to use later. I've only shot it a few times, but it seems to shoot pretty well. The scope will change, and this November, I hope that it’ll start a new chapter in its life of helping young hunters get their first deer.
