I'm a fan of the M77 too.
I have one in in 7mm Remington Mag, and it's little cousion, the 77/22.
I like the boat oar composite stock.
I kick myself for getting the walnut on my 7mm in lieu of the boat oar stock because, shortly thereafter it was discontinued and I have yet to find another one on the usd market in any caliber.
