Hi everyone, new guy here, was at the local gun store the other day and he had a 223 Hawkeye that had been traded in without ever being shot. Beautiful wood, I knew I wanted it, but as usual, low on funds. So I went home and grabbed a few guns I hadn't shot in awhile and went back, the guy did me right with an even trade, and I had him mount a Bushnell 3.5x10 scope and bore sight it. I'm not new to Rugers, years of Cowboy Action Shooting have me with a pile of Blackhawks and Vaqueros. Also have a pretty cool PC4 carbine. Anyway, I am wondering what you guys are shooting in a 223 Hawkeye. I took a box of factory Winchester 45gr varmint loads, Winchester 55gr FMJ, 55gr FMJ reloads, 55gr Balistic Tip reloads and 3 60 gr softpoint reloads. Accuracy wasn't that great, so looking for some tips, pet loads, etc. I know My savage 308 likes to be coppered up pretty good before it's shoots good. What about this Hawkeye?
