I have a 257 Roberts and a 338 winchester magnum in the older 77s. Both are fantastic firearms. I wish the lawyers would have stayed away but it is what it is. Just was wondering if the 77 fans like the older models or the new ones better. I'm old school. Give me a 3.5 pound crisp trigger and I'm Happy! Accuracy with both rifles is 1" with there happy loads @. 100 yards.
