Hey guys, anybody have one? I just got a m77 hawkeye and got a couple boxes of 200 grain federal fusions. I took it out over the weekend to at least season the barrel and after 20 rounds I was ready for a break! Alot more recoil than I was expecting! However it does shoot great! I put a 3 x 9 Redfield on it and only shot it a 100 yards, after a few shots I had it cutting holes at 1" high. I see they make a 180 gr barnes for it also, but they were $52 a box so I opted for the fusions to shoot it in! Anybody shoot anything different or handloads?
