NRA Gun of the Week: Ruger Hawkeye Long-Range Target Rifle

Built on a variant of the company’s rugged and proven M77 action, Ruger has upped the ante by adding a feature-rich precision target rifle, the Hawkeye Long-Range Target (HLRT). Chambered for 6.5 mm Creedmoor, the HLRT action is fitted with a heavy-contour, 26” cold-hammer-forged, 4140 chrome-moly steel barrel with right-hand 5R rifling. A non-rotating Mauser-style controlled-round feed extractor, along with a fixed, blade-type ejector, ensure reliable performance. Its two-tone stock includes comb and length-of-pull adjustments, and at the stock fore-end is a flush-fit section of Magpul M-Lok rail for accessories. Additionally, a 20-m.o.a. Picatinny rail is included to dial in optics for distant shot opportunities. Ruger also includes a two-stage adjustable trigger and ships the rifle with one AICS-style magazine.
