Ruger M77 MkII VLE in .308
I hunt with my my Ruger M77 MkII VLE in .308 all season long so I try and keep/shoot the Leupold on it at 4x-6x, because that is most likely where it will be when I take a shot from my tree stand.
I bought the rifle used, it came with a real light trigger. and as you say "it rocks" . . . the most accurate rifle I've ever owned.
America is at that awkward stage. It's too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards. Claire Wolfe
