I have a hankerin' for another rifle, and have heard a few not so good reports of the newer Ruger Hawkeyes. I'd like something useful for varminting, with low recoil, but also, sufficient for for deer and hogs, should the occasion arise. Actually, the calibers I am drawn to are the 250 Savage, 6mm Remington, or waaay in 3rd place, the .243. I'd like to find a good used Tang Safety Model 77, or the 77 Mark II. Which has a reputation for being the better gun? Or are the American and Hawkeye rifles the equals of the older models, QC and accuracy wise? Although I'd rather not, If I could find a rifle for a reasonable price, rebarreling to another caliber would not be out of the question. What say, Ruger gurus?
