  1. Thumped this big yote with my .221 Fireball (of course!). Anchored him right in place at 150 yrds with a double lung shot. May be my biggest ever, didn't have a scale handy but he was hard to lift!
  2. The new models have loading gates. I've got this model, and actually prefer the tube feed. No finger bite, and I'm not in a hurry to reload. Once the tube is full, I'm good for the hunt and it's a lot easier to dump them back out to unload then rack each round through.
  3. This shouldn't last long. What a perfect novelty gun for Doc Holiday or William Munny ("Unforgiven") reenactments!
  4. Welcome to our gang of fun loving, gun totin', good ol' folks.
  5. I think there's a lot of old timers (like me) that aren't hunting much anymore, especially long range, which is where the 7mm mag shines. Our gray haired hunters are dwindling while the younger hunters are pretty hyped up on AR platforms and that ever so popular 6.5 Creedmore. If this vintage M77 sells, I bet it'll be a baby boomer who buys it ... or someone who just loves nice walnut stocks and light pencil barrels like me.
  6. Wondered why it had been so quiet on the "hipower" front. Hope you're back and kicking. Us old goats sure ain't getting no younger.
  7. It's a Weaver Classic V-16. I was sad to see Weaver fold up after all the years (2019 I think?). I had a lot of them on a lot of rifles. Always liked the quality for only being a medium priced scope. I still have a fixed 5x on my vintage M77 .243. Still clear and always holds zero. Never saw a reason to change it out.
  8. 1994 Ruger M77 Mark II in 7mm Magnum. Comes with Ruger integrated scope rings. Took this on trade from a good friend who bought it new in '94 to hunt elk. He went twice, ate tag soup, and did a little deer hunting with it before finally admitting he didn't like recoil. Bought a .243 instead. It's probably had no more than a few boxes ran through it in its 28 years. Been sitting in his safe. Nice example of one of the early Mark II's, nice patina to the walnut, a few minor hunting nicks, nothing bad. Tried to show the few on the magazine floor plate. $750 Have 15 rounds to go with it.
