Thank you for starting this thread.

I have been looking at a M77 International or No. 1 International in .243. I would like a red pad, I think those were the 80's???

The M77 RSI with red butt pad and tang safety was made from 1982-1992ish.

Thanks! It's a 1987 Ruger M77 RSI (aka "International") in .30-06.

I love the way they look. If I had any use for another bolt gun, I'd consider one in 6.5mm Swede. But I have no use for one at all, as I already have a .270 that I rarely use.

I have agree with your choice, I had a CZ550 FS in 9.3 great rifle ....sold it

Buds still has them in 6.5.....a perfect combo in my opinion

but the Ruger is such a great compact package, wish they sold them in 6.5 or 7x57...or even 7mm-08

Mannnlicher? I hardly knew her!
OK, a little cheesy...but check out the 1917 vintage Mannlicher-Schoenauer Model 1908 in caliber 8x56


Pretty clean for its age,
With decent glass and the Lyman mdl 36 aperture sight that swings out of way of the bolt handle going fore and aft, as well as the set of cleaning rods in the butt stock.



I'm quite fond of this company, I also have a 2011 "classic half stock" and a 1977 SSG-69. These two are incredible tack drivers.
The 1908 not so much.
The striker is massive and when it falls the entire rifle tends to move so I really need to put all my weight onto it to get the groups down to 2" at 100yds.
The trigger when "set" its quite nice and usable, "unset" is awful with about a half inch of travel before the release.

No kidding.

That rifle is fantastic. I am unfamiliar with the caliber.

Please share the details of that rifle. Thanks.

Ruger offered the M77 RSI in all three of those calibers in the past. They're out there... You'll just have to look for them.

The 8x56 is a bit of a thumper, on both ends given the light weight of the rifle. I mostly shoot 220gr lead bullets over a full case of Trail Boss, which is how the irons are regulated at 50yds. Its a "shoot all day" load. The loading data is scarce, but a rule of thumb is to use 8x57 data backed off by 10% which does closely match the actual load data I've been able to find. For full house loads I use 170gr Hornady bullets over an almost full case of IMR4350 at around 2200fps, and the scope is zeroed at 100yds for that. I form the brass from 8x57 cases. Dies are out there, but not when I needed them so I went to C&H and had a set made. Steel butt plate is no fun with the 170's and I always wear the recoil shield.

This company was the biggest challenge to the Mauser Bros way back when. It also has the twin opposed lugs and controlled round feeding but after that its night and day.
Its more than a little famous among the old bolt action crowd, Bell ( of Africa ) was one fan, he liked the model 1903 in 6.5mm
There are still quite a few in circulation, but if you see one and are tempted beware that getting rings to match the claw bases they almost always have will set you back a grand.
I jumped on this one because it had the Griffin & Howe mount, scope, AND the peep sight.

A lot more detail here

Wow! Some nice looking rifles in this post.

Ke Bo Li, your 1917 is a thing of beauty.
It has very pleasing lines.

Thank you
People think "high speed low drag" is something new, but this thumper and others like it ( Winchester 94, or Savage 99 anyone? ) from that era embodied the concept a long time before black plastic was invented. This one is light and nimble and points like a wand in your hands. The steel recoil plate leaves a bit to be desired though...

My father's Mannlicher-Schoenauer 6.5x54 with Zeiss scope:



I had to sell it to raise money for my mom. So the best I could do was to create a Ruger 10/22 International takedown to go along with my standard Ruger 10/22 International:
