If you were to purhase a new Ruger Hawkeye in .257 Roberts, would it be the standard or ultra light? I noticed that Ruger has taken the ultra light our of there lineup on their web page. Wonder why? They quit making them?
If you are going to buy a Ruger M-77 "Hawkeye", in .257 Roberts, then BUY THE STANDARD rifle
. I had an ultralight in .308 & it was worthless!!
The best it could do is 6" groups @ 100 yards with both factory & reloads. I think the barrel was just too light for the caliber and this "Whimpy" barrel vibrated all over the place when shot. I since sold my Ruger Ultralight "Hawkeye" to a Ruger Collector who was looking for one in .308. BUT I lost as lot of money around $250!!!!
Your Standard Ruger "Should" be okay.
