I have a mk II LH 30.06, bought used ,like new, maybe a box of shells through it. I actually bought it because of the scope attached to it. I made the mistake of shooting it before removing the scope. (Leupold 2.5x8) (165 grn. fed trphy bnd). Presto! 3 shot 3/4" group, maybe lucky! 7/8"group this time. So much for the Ruger bad rap about accuracy as far as i'm concerened. I did'nt touch the scope and put my 99 with the peep back in the cabinet. The only complaint i have is the trigger. It is crisp but very heavy about 7-8#s, is there any thing I (or gunsmith) can do to lower the factory trigger to 4- 4 1/2#s. Thanks, JGrass.
