Ruger Hawkeye Long-Range Target Extends Precision Capabilities

Recommended Posts

The new Ruger Hawkeye Long-Range Target extends the range capability of the company’s classic M77 action. Consequently, chamberings include the popular 6.5 Creedmoor and 6.5 PRC long-range cartridges.

The line itself is not new, as the Long-Range Target was previously released in .300 Win Mag. But with the recent explosion in long-range competition, the addition of 6.5 Creedmoor and 6.5 PRC will likely prove popular. Moreover, each rifle in the line is equally suited for hunting as well, especially in open terrain.

The Hawkeye Long-Range Target features a heavy-contour barrel fitted with a Ruger Precision Rifle Hybrid Muzzle Brake. Meanwhile, the 4140 chome-moly steel barrel features 5R rifling and is free-floated.

A target-grade, adjustable trigger helps deliver a clean break. Moreover, the Mauser-type controlled round feed of the M77 provides positive case extraction. Additionally, a three-position safety should be familiar to Ruger fans.

A 20 MOA Picatinny rail sits atop the receiver, while #8-40 screws add to elevation capabilities. The rifle ships with an AI-style magazine.

The two-tone stock features an adjustable comb and length of pull. M-Lok rails and QD attach points deliver versatility.

Who we are

We are a community of concerned patriots who are not overly confident in the current direction of our society, from the wild political climate to what can be summed up as a lack of morals or a complete void of integrity and pretty much a blatant disregard of respect..... Respect for our past, respect for our future and respect for each other. In order to protect our constitution and life as we know it, we decided to not be the silent majority anymore and pull our selves up by the bootstraps and make the world a better place. This website is to unite people like us, people who want to make a difference ... and do it the right way, Little did we know that in doing so we would create the number one militia community online. Here we are. Enjoy.
