The local Walmart has this Ruger rifle http://www.ruger.com/Firearms/FAProdView?model=7850&return=Y (stainless steel, synthetic, 30-06, 22 inch barrel, no sights, scope rings included) on clearance for $400.00. This is a $140 dollar markdown off their regular price ($275 below list) My wife wants to buy it for me as an anniversary present. I know very little about Ruger rifles. Are they cast. Would I be better off with a Remington or Weatherby blued/synthetic for the regular price of $400.00. (also are these receivers cast or forged) Any advice is greatly appreciated. I'm sure this deal won't last long.

Save yourself the heartaches. Get yourself the Remington 700 in your choice of model. I have both and much prefer the Remington.

Ruger receivers are investment cast, but don't let that or the other poster scare you off. Lots of firearms and assemblies are investment cast. This doesn't make them of any lesser quality. The Ruger 77 has a different type of bedding system that uses a 45-degree forward action screw. Some people don't understand this and are quick to condemn it. There is some aftermarket support for Ruger bolt guns in the way of triggers. At $400, that's a HELL of a buy. Get it, you won't be sorry.
