Default Well......looks like I'm a Ruger guy

What a weird 4-5 years this has been buying, selling, customizing rifles to fine "the one" that I like the best. I've been through Browning Stainless Stalkers and Remington XCR's (both outstanding rifles BTW!)
I'm a lefty, so the selection of stainless/synthetic/laminate rifles is a little slim. Just never could warm up to Savage rifles, although I believe they may be one of the most underrated companies for "out of the box" accuracy.
Although I loved the short bolt throw of the Browning and the beautifull lines of the Remongton 700's in the end I couldn't deny that the left handed Ruger Hawkeye just "fit" me the best out of all of them. I ordered a left handed stainless/laminate Hawkeye in .270 Win. today. Can't wait to get my hands on it.

Deer of East Texas beware!!!

And a fine cartridge to boot!! Im glad to hear you found something that worked for you. If you ever shoot right handed rifles lefty ( as I do) you should try the old ruger all weather boat paddle in .270 win. IMO by far the best factory all weather rifle I ever touched.

If your's shoots as well as mine (.280) you'll love it.I load myself but I did try some factory ammo.The Federal 150gr load shot so well I'm having a hard time bettering it with my reloads.Don't see that often.

Welcome to the club! I've been a Ruger guy for years. Yes I know there are lingering hard feelings toward Bill Ruger. But Old Man Ruger is dead and life goes on.

the old ruger all weather boat paddle in .270 win. IMO by far the best factory all weather rifle I ever touched.
Podunk: it is a good thing they shoot well because they sure are ugly!

seems they get a bad wrap. I had a ruger p89dc and loved the thing, I have had no trouble with my 10/22. I miss the p89dc every time I shoot my glock. Nothing wrong with the glock just miss the ruger since it was my first handgn
