About 5 years ago, I was in your position looking for a new hunting rifle. My narrowed down options were the Browning A-bolt micro hunter in 7mm-08 or Ruger M77RL MKII in .257 Roberts. Comparing the Brownings modern design vs Rugers time tested features were as follows.

Browning A-bolt has 3 locking lugs, 60 deg. bolt lift, push feed, brazed on bolt handle, detachable magazine on swinging floorplate, adjustable trigger, epoxy bedded barrel lug, aluminum triggerguard & floorplate & required scope bases & rings.

Ruger M77 MKII has Mauser style 2 locking lugs, 90 deg. bolt lift, control round feed, one piece bolt handle, floorplate magazine, non adjustable trigger(easily tuned), angled barrel lug bedding, Steel triggerguard & aluminum floorplate, receiver milled scope ring bases(very strong) & rings supplied.

After much consideration, I chose the Ruger for it's more hunting rifle features based on ruggedness. It is hunting accurate and I've never regretted making the decision.


Hunting accurate?

Acceptable accuracy for big game hunting at reasonable distance! The Ruger RL's not a bench rest shooter, but it is M.O.A. @ 100yds. with the proper handloads which is good enough I.M.H.O. Then it's up to me to do my job & get the bullet placed correctly.
