Ruger Resurrects the .264 win mag

THERE IS NOTHING petite or delicate about Ruger’s new Model 77 Hawkeye; it’s a rugged rifle designed for handling the toughest field conditions the hunter is likely to encounter. The Hawkeye Alaskan with Hogue OverMolded synthetic stock that I originally reviewed was chambered in the new .375 Ruger calibre and it performed well on N.T buffaloes. Then a mate got one in .257 Roberts which I saw and liked, so I bought one for myself.

Quite often it lands five shots in a 1/2-inch circle! The latest Hawkeye sent for review surprised me by being chambered for the .264 Winchester Magnum. It probably isn’t listed in the Ruger 2009 catalogue, since together with the .35 Whelen it was a limited run and not an addition to the regular line-up.
