Ruger Hawkeye Predator

Has anyone have any experience with these rifles. They come in 204, 22-250 and 223. They also have an adjustable two stage trigger. They have a laminated stock and weight 8lb. They look really nice and seem well built.
Curious how they shoot.

When Ruger first came out with the 77 many years ago they got a bad rep for not grouping. In the early 90's they changed something and started making tackhammers and still are.

And they're built like a tank.

I've got some pics in here of my sub-MOA groups in these forums somewhere from my Ruger M77 MkII all-weather .300 Win Mag.

I had a Ruger varmit target in 223 and it shot 1/2" groups with factory ammo.
I wish I never sold it. I like the preditor because is it is more practical in the field.
