Ruger M77V in 280 Remington.
« on: March 18, 2019, 07:40:13 AM »
My Ruger M77V in 280 Remington. Partially the inspiration for my idea of the thread, "Cartridge of the Week".

I bought this rifle about 8 or 9 years ago. I had been searching for rifle in 280 Rem. for about ten years or so, and I found this one at a gun dealer I used quite a bit in his used gun rack for sale. So I bought it. Paid $470 for it. It was in really good condition as well. Ordered some dies, brass and worked up some loads for it and it's deadly accurate, if I do my part.

I resisted the urge for some years to correct some of the minor stock defects, since I was worried I might not be able to get it back to OEM looking. But after about six very careful months, I did.

Nice work.

Thank you. Truth is, it was in pretty good condition before I started. It just had some really minor dents and scratches, that for several years I resisted the urge to repair. The hardest part was mixing a stain that would replicate the original color of the factory finish when completed.
