Initial range report on Ruger M77 Hawkeye 30-06. I only used one powder, one type of brass (Nosler), one primer 210 Fed, today and four different 165gr bullets (Sierra HPBT, Ballistic Tip, Accubond, and GS HV Custom).
My work today was very limited in that I used H4350. The best group and velocity of standard bullets was Sierra HPBT with a .807" group at 2907fps.
GS gave better velocities but was not as accurate.
Also, I only fired one three shot group with the above bullets using 59grs H4350. This is just where I am starting knowing the 06 so well and have owned three Rugers in 30-06.
I believe there is a lot of potential with this Hawkeye because all the different bullets were under 1 3/4". Here are some better pictures of the rifle and also the chrony and Seirra HPBT target.
