Does anyone have any input on the ruger (rugers # 7189 ) hawkeye tactical? I really like the looks of the rifle and it seems you get a lot for $850.00. Free floating bull barrel, rings and a harris bi-pod. I wonder how accurate it is.

I hope they're more accurate than the 20 or so rifles Ruger built for the US Palma Team in the early 1990's. Those rifles were supposed to be the best hardware Ruger could put together. With barrels made by Green Mountain in Vermont, a company who makes low-priced black powder barrels, nobody was surprised they were called wash tub guns. They shot groups at long range the size of a wash tub. Horrible triggers and poorly designed stocks for shooting prone.

Ruger barrels have come a long way since the early 90's. Just do a search for ruger m77 and you will find all kinds of people getting awesome accuracy from their run of the mill hawkeyes and mark IIs
