I bought one 6 months ago and i love it. It is very accurate at the range i go to it groups five shots into 1 inch at 200yds.
I am going to join a club with a longer range to test myself out.
I just loaded some varmint rounds for it and they group a bit better. The rifle is very solid with a fully floated barrell and harris bipod.
I must say that the rifle will rust if not cleaned and oiled though which suprised me a bit.
I am currently starting to get into the long range scene and I think this rifle will serve me well.
I have hunted with it a few times and find the overall short length good to carry through the bush.
With the 20inch barrell it is loud and hearing protection is advised.
The first time i shot it in the field without earplugs was painful. lol
My number reason for buying it was the way it looks - unreal
I grew up using my dads sako's and even he admits the hawkeye shoots just as well as the expensive euro's.
