Re: Ruger Hawkeye Compact Mag vs Browning Xbolt Hunter
i have several rugers, MKI, II and hawkeyes. the only one that isn't a tack driver is my RSI 308 which is a full stock. its right on for the first shot and then tends to scatter them after that. but it is a sweet gun to carry. the ultralights are great but the pencil thin barrel sometimes causes the above behavior on them as well. i have two of the frontiers which have thicker 16.5" barrels and they are great for carrying. you can put either the conventional or scout style scope on them. they shoot MOA shot after shot due to their thicker barrel. they are the size of a yard stick and about 6.5lbs. laminated and SS.
i like the RCM's but unless i am mistaken they only come in the RCM calibers right? cost and availability of ammo would be an issue if so. if they came in 308, etc i think they'd be almost ideal.
