Following on from the last post about heavy rifles I think I've found one. I searched all the big manufacturers websites and all the Sporter rifles seem to weigh in at between 6-7lbs. In .338 Win Mag I have a feeling that may be a bit light!
Well I looked on the Ruger site and found the M77 Hawkeye. It looks nice, couldn't see any plastic bits and it has a Mauser style controlled round feed which is good. It also weighs in at 7.9lbs so it's a heavy bugger! That's great, as long as it's well balanced?

Does anyone have a Ruger? I know very little about them apart from the fact that they are a long standing American manufacturer. How do they shoot? What's the build quality like (they're obviously mass produced on a huge scale)? The only Ruger that seems popular here is the 10/22 and the build on them is ok.
