I have a CZ 550FS in 6.5x55. It's a sub MOA shooter with my hand loads. It's all the accuracy I need from a hunting rifle. I have rang a steel gong at 1200yds with it. I can only think that the Ruger will shoot just fine once you find the load it likes.

I have one of the 77 Hawkeye RSIs in .308. Joy to carry. I have chronographed the Hornady 150 grain SST Superperformane at 2808 fps out of the little barrel. Handloaded Nosler 125 gr Accubonds at 2940 fps. Just a tad above an inch with both. Shot a small 8pt with the Accubond this past season. Great performance! When you take one of these out of its case at hunting camp everyone wants to hold/admire it I like full-length stocks. The front is a Custom Shop Remington Model 7 MS in .260 Rem and behind it is the Ruger .308.

I have to agree those are two sharp looking well set up rifles. I would be proud to have either one.

We have several full stock CZs and they are every bit as accurate as the same gun with a regular stock, which is to say, very accurate. As long as a full stock gun is bedded, correctly, no reason for it not to be as accurate.

The only negative on a Mannlicher for our use - shooting at the range - is that the barrels on a full stock gun heat up faster, so for the sake of group size, we have to wait longer between shots to keep the barrels at a reasonable temperature. For field use or hunting, though, this would hardly matter.

Stocky's Stock for RSI

My RSI has a SS Hawkeye action from a special run for Lipseys. The stock I bought is a "Classic Sporter" with fitment for a 77 MK II (Hawkeye), Short Action. It is a typical sporter stock, not a full length Mannlicher. I bought it to try and improve accuracy and to take the wear and tear of hunting while I kept my full length walnut stock safe and unworn. Accuracy improved from 1.5" 3 shot groups at 100 yds to half that with the laminated stock. The RSI barrel profile is a litttle slimmer than the standard sporter barrel profile that this stock was made for, so this is a bit more barrel / stock gap than normal in the area right after the chamber where the RSI barrel slims down quickly. This stock would not fit a tang safety M77 RSI, but they make one that does fit the older models.

I would tend to agree with you that a .308 would be a better fit with a 18 inch barrel & Mannilcher stock. I took my Ruger M-77 Tang Safety model in.270 & made it into a Mannilcher stock model using a Bishop stock had a gunsmith cut the barrel to 20 inches add a new front sight. I had the action glass bedded this was a very nice rifle. But after I converted my rifle it grouped ok but was never as accurate as it was in its original setting. But the Ruger RSI International Mannilcher is a very rare and hard to find rifle. If the price is right and in good condition I would buy it in a heartbeat. If you reload you can work up a load that works for you good luck buy that rifle!!!

I have been Buying and Shooting RSI Internationals since Ruger first released them in the Tang Safety version. I presently own RSI Lipsey guns in 22lr, and 7X57, and and MKII RSI guns in 06, 08,and a .243 Tang Safety. I am so sorry to see these fine Rifles Discontinued.
These Rifles are Designed as a Light Weight Hunting Gun. The Game being Hunted could care less about MOA. They are still plenty accurate for what they were designed to do.
