The Ruger M77 Hawkeye in the .270 caliber is a great choice.
Good Luck!


ronn, the hawkeye description says, "Classically styled, bolt-action rifle with barrel and receiver in Hawkeye Matte Blued finish"
So I'm guessing it's just a name given due to the matte blue finish other than that I see no difference at all.

The updated M77 is now called the hawkeye

Ruger upgraded the wood (quality and reshaped it) and went to the new hawkeye trigger which is a huge improvement. You have the same barrel, same built in scope bases. Most importantly they didn't raise the price, just a better rifle for your dollar.

The Hawkeye is actually the same as the Ruger Mark2 with the exception of a slimmer stock,nicer checkering and a LC-6 trigger, which is not alot better than the Mark2 trigger. Both triggers are not adjustable. Same gun, different trigger and name.
