My Compact

I have owned a Ruger M77 MKII Compact chambered in .308 for some time now. It also is my light stalking rifle for deer. I have a Leupold 2-7x33 shotgun scope sitting on top. (Take a gander at these for their thick crosshairs)To me,it is the perfect combo for a short(16" bbl)gun,designed for the medium ranges.

The other two calibers that I was contemplating in that weapon was the 7-08 or the 260. I am highly satisfied with the weapon after trigger work and stock bedding. I would recommend a Compact or a Frontier to anyone as long as they were prepared to do some "minor' tinkering with it.

My bullet of choice is the 125gr NosBalTip at 2900fps. Killed a deer(Fla sized) with it last year and the combo did a great job.

Enjoy that rifle. -----pruhdlr
