There's a solution to this--I'm trying it now. I just bought a new Ruger 77 MkII in .308 (just had to have one, you know). It's nicely fitted and finished, etc., accuracy is ok (about an inch at 100 yards--as good as I can honestly shoot). Trigger wasn't creepy, but it was really heavy. But I followed a hint in the owner's manual, which said to contact them if there were any accuracy problems. Called, got a very nice lady on the phone, who said ship it in and they would adjust the trigger and check the barrel for accuracy. Turn around is oficially six weeks, but any work they do is free. So I sent it, and I'll let you all know how it comes out. She said the factory trigger adjustment takes it to 3 1/2 pounds, fine for me, since I'm hunting with it, not benchrest shooting.
