I've a plain Savage 111 that does the trick much further than that, but a 77 is a solid design that I wouldn't have a problem using

Ricky,

I think either one can produce 1" MOA out to 400 to 500 yards.

Can you is the only question ??

BTW - I'm not saying you can't.......................

Sheridan , Killed 8 pointer last week at 410 yds. with a Ruger .220 swift 40 grain bullet , then Sunday killed a doe at 510 yds. with a Remington 257 Weatherby , so to answer your question I think I can.

Ricky,

So pick which one you like the best !

I don't think the accuracy of either rifle is a concern...............

Seems like your Ruger and your Remington (and YOU) can do it..............huh.

BTW - Congratulations on filling your tags.

What 40 grn bullet are you using and what state are you doing this in? I own both rifles in question. I have a Savage 112 BVSS-S in .220 Swift, and a Ruger M77 MK2 Target in 22-250. I also own a Ruger M77 MK2 Target in .220 Swift as well. It is out west with one of my counterparts while he out there on work related business.

I know nothing of the Savage in question, but a friend of mine has the Ruger 77 Target in .22-250, and he can consistently ring the steel plates I have set up 400 yards from my front door. He has a Burris Signature scope with mil-dots. He has another in .204 that does as well....provided the wind's not blowing. My plates range down from 13" to 3", and I've seen him ring them all in succession, one right after another. I was most impressed with the rifle.

born2climb, The bullet that we use in the Ruger M77 Mark II .220 swift is a Hornady V-MAX 40 grain Moly.
