    Finally re-scoped an old favorite rifle and sighted her in.
    Ruger M77 VDZ (tang safety) from the late 80's and rebarreled with a XX Premium Douglas SS bbl and topped with a Burris Black Diamond.
    I'm in love all over again!

    After rough zero, factory Federal 308M load with 168 gr SMK.
    Look forward to trying the new TSMK, Berger, and Nosler RDFs in her as well.

    Took the old Colt out as well and tried some equally old 70 gr JLK HPRBT bullets.
    They shot fairly well, and as such will be worked up with H-4895 in the next testing.

    Wish I had put the Dime down next to the group for scale.

    I'm thinking about a better trigger for the Colt, wonder if Santa has a Velocity or Geiselle in his bag.
