It’s too bad there’s so many people here who are so content to ruin cool threads, this could have been an awesome one. Oh well.

Probably have to get used to the panty raids. Big boy has a Tikka. DBM'ed it as I recall. It's OK to do that to any other rifle though. Tikka mags suck with 75's. So does a 700 ADL unless you monkey with the spacer in the mag box. Then the sucky trigger that takes 2 seconds to adjust. Oh, then the "ergos" because it's hard to fit that big noggin behind the stock. Speaking of the stock, it sucks too, don't forget. And the loooong action which sucks all the soul out of it, almost making it inoperable and waaay to heavy.

Blah, blah, blah, yadda, yadda, yadda.....

A Ruger M77 is worth the money and a .223 in a synthetic stock (just my SWAG) is worth about $500 +/-.


In 2014 I bought a used Ruger MKII .223 for $475 at Cabelas. Stainless/laminate. Thought if the barrel was shot out I'd rebarrel to a faster twist, but it shot bugholes with 40g bullets. If I need more than 40g I've got options in .243, .257, 6.5 and up. Most of my bolt rifles are Ruger - M77, MKII and Hawkeye. All but one is a keeper.

No, I'm not a Ruger bigot - just an unabashed fan of their revolvers, M77's and #1's.

A good .30-06 makes everything else in your safe unnecessary.

Yep, that long action is the suckiest

After all, with the bolt stop it is as short a throw, as a short action.

And the weight? A "short action" Tikka is soooo heavy for a normal prodduction gun.

And the ability to change bolt stop and magazines to seat bullets out farther?
Hell that's worthless, if you don't have to pay to get the action machined, then buy
a special $300 aftermarket set up that uses $70 magazines.

After them darn Tikky mags cost $50.

And everyone can tell they are junk.

(No one seems to break them though)

Well a drunk ass, Alaskan retard, that willfully abuses his equipment, and
molests young innocent virgin brass? He could break an anvil.


30-06 and/or Partitions. What was the question again?
People don't understand how hard it is to be cheap.

Thank you. Now I have a benchmark to move forward. If anyone has anything negative to say about the M77 (other than it's a Ruger) please let me know.

All good reasons to hate on the Tikka. I guess, if you are a midget with short arms. That extra 1/2" length of the action is just too hard for some to deal with... You know, they make chipmunk rifles for those that cant run a man sized rifle... whistle

At least Stick has a sense of humor. And, if you ask politely, will give you useful information without stroking his own ego.

The orange man, not so much.


Is that about the spray tan on the face?
