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?

I've shot a few of the Ultralights off the bench, and my conclusion is they are not easy to shoot from the bench. Very light and whippy. Darn loud, too.
The Ultralight is a joy to carry, but unless you're doing some serious hiking where the light rifle weight is almost mandatory, I'd go with the regular Hawkeye.
