View Full Version : Ruger 77/50-209 primer problem

November 9, 2009, 05:44 PM
Fired a few rounds through my Ruger 77/50 today,held about 2" group at 90 yds(3 shots,100 grains-2 pellets-270 grain powerbelt platinums)but I got nervous and quit.I have a 209 adapter and each shot,the spent primer was kicked back between the pin and adapter.Anyone had this problem/know how to fix it?I read a post about shimming the spring?

FYI,I found some info about a product called Variflame.It apparently loads a smaller,less powerful primer in a 209 size casing.That should take care of my problem and another one concerning accuracy.thanks
