My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755

    kind of like to try on myself. Ive had three 77 tang safety 257s on 77r and two ultralights and all three were crapy at best in the accuracy dept. I ended up with one of the limited run 257 #1a guns and its a decent shooter. Ive got two hawkeyes now one a 264 and the other a 7mag (which by the way i won too) Both of those two rugers shoot great. As a matter of fact i about gave up on ruger bolts before i owned those two. I heard the hawkeyes are much better shooters then the older rugers and have to believe it. Id still like to have a 257 bolt gun and may have to buck up and buy one. Sure like to hear how yours does though.
