    Picked this up last week,
    been trying to find ammo,
    Seems 22-250 has become VERY popular, and somewhat hard to find

    Ruger M77 MarkII ,mfg in 1982, chambered in 22-250, LNIB.
    Ruger did not produce the Stainless model with wood stocks, syn only, this one was special ordered for this gun.

    Havent shot it yet, just got a box of ammo Sat, and got more on order, hope to zero and see what it can do this week.

    Hi Ho, Fido!!!!!!!

    Saw your rifle posted on KTOG. Thought it might have made it's way over here. Really nice and in a really hot caliber. Really popular around here with the outlaw hunters. Well, those few that are still around. I have about 40 rounds of Winch. JSPs and half a box of PMC JSPs stasched somewhere. I had a hand cannon in that caliber that I traded off. You are welcome to shoot the ammo if ya can make it down here.:D

    Had a Ruger All Weather/stainless in .25-06 with a plastic stock that I traded off to an old gun swapping buddy. He ordered a boyd's laminated thumbhole stock for it. It looks badazz now. He has an old Remmy 788 in .22-250 that I have been trying to get out of him for some time. Don't think he will ever trade it off. The .22-250s and .220 Swifts are scarce around here. Would prefer the .22-250 over the Swift cause of the shorter cartridge. Have had something in almost every other caliber except that one. And I don't wanna pay for a new oen either.

    Will be waiting for that range report!!!!!!!!!

    Hey Pancho,
    I think a trip down there would cost a little more than a box or two of ammo.;):)
    BUT, I wish I could do the trip just to shoot with you.

    Ive been interested in the 22-250 cartridge for a long time, the velocity ( 3900 fps) and energy is awesome. Flat line ballistics is hard to beat.

    I will be doing a range report as soon as I get a break in the humidity and temps. Im really looking forward to seeing just what the gun and the 22-250 (and me) can actually do.
