    I just seen yesterday that they came out with that rifle. It is a little spendy looking at the MSRP. I seen on snipercentral they were talking about it but I don't think it has hit the shelves yet. I am actually a ruger fan so I would be excited to hear how it shoots as well. I have two savage 10 fp's in 308 and they are both incredible performers.

    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 - unrealgun)
    I grew up using my dads sako's and even he admits the hawkeye shoots just as well as the expensive euro's.

    The Hawkeye Tact.308 has been out a year & a half or so. I wonder if you mean the Ruger Scout?

    Indeed it does, that's what reading the posts too fast does.
