Well, I had a couple of rain free cool days in which to check out my new Ruger Ultra Light Hawkeye rifle in .308 Caliber. I have an opportunity earlier to sight it in @ 50 yards, but now wanted to see how it shot (Group wise) @ 100 yards. I use Winchester Factory 150 grain power points and yesterday morning and shot several 5-shot groups to see how it performed. Also shot some handloads that were accurate in my Browning A-Bolt. To my disappointment; I was only able to obtain 2 ½” groups with BOTH factory & handloaded ammo. I stopped and returned to the house and cleaned the bore and decided to check out everything. The scope & rings were fine, as well as the eye relief and I know the ammo was fine too. I then checked the stock screws but when I examined them I found that the middle “action” screw was WAY too tight as well as the other two screws. I took a proper sized screw driver and tried to loosen the three Screws to re install them. Well, I couldn’t even budge them as it was like they were glued in!! So I called Ruger’s Tech. Dept. and told them of the problem and also what size groups I was receiving. The nice person told me that the screws should not be so tight that one couldn’t remove them, and he suggested that I take the rifle to a Gunsmith to have the screws removed & reinstalled. I also asked him about this new type “LC6” trigger which I told him seemed to be a little creepy & had a very heavy pull. He told me that the LC6 trigger is not adjustable. To be honest, I couldn’t see very much difference in their old Model 77 MKII trigger compared to their new LC6 trigger. So I took my Rifle to a local Gunshop and even the guy there had trouble removing the screws!! He had to tap them with a hammer to remove them. We found that they had some sort of sealant or glue on the threads!! Also the trigger had almost an 7 pound trigger pull & the rifle only weighs something like 7 ¾ pounds!! So I am having them to install a Timney Trigger adjusted to 3 pounds. I have a regular Ruger Model 77 MKII in .270, which I had a Timney Trigger installed, years ago, and it shoots almost one hole groups @ 100 yards with good handloads. Don’t know why Ruger doesn’t place better triggers on their rifles.
