Had a Ruger Model 77 stainless with the black synthetic "boat paddle" stock in 7 Magnum...kicked like a mule and had a heck of a time with the scope slipping in the rings...finally started using the Remington Managed Recoil Ammo and cross hatched the scope rings id...it was deadly...traded it on something new...

7mm Mag. It was a cheap platform which may have been the problem(770). It was a love/hate thing. Loved the power behind the round but hated the recoil.

Had a ruger mini 30 in 7.62x39 it was super finicky on what ammo it would shoot. I bought it thinking I would be able to shoot surplus ammo but that was a joke. It would light strike primers (even after upgrading the hammer spring) and jam so I eventually bought some more expensive brass cased ammo that it at least shot reliably but it shot all over the place. Had a guy that asked about it I gave him full disclosure on all my issues with it and he took it home. Have never been so glad to get rid of a gun.

7MM-08 in a Savage-Stevens platform. Kicked like a mule, too light of a setup for that chambering.

With me I've never run across a cartridge that I really didn't like - but I have definitely run across a few rifles that did not work out for me, or did not work out with a given cartridge - but would have been OK with something else.

I always blame the gun, not the cartridge.

Sometimes I'm the problem, but we won't talk about that.

I love them all. Any time I go out and pull the trigger I am a happy man. Only one I do not care to bench shoot or sight in is the 300 win mag, but I know anything I shoot with it will fall right in its tracks.
