Permit arrived last week, but busy as so didnt get a chance to make any ammo.
A Used Ruger African Hawkeye in 375 Rugermeister. Even knocked up a new croc sling for it. Its an ordinary walnut stock, the grade and finish similar to older M77 stock, but furnished with a black forend tip and a grip cap, both appear to be polymer.
It came only with the radial brake, but a matched weight, and regular cap are on their way. The bluing on the barrel, bolt shroud and bolt release are shiny-almost-black and the action, barrel band and front sight appear more lighter brown to purple. It looks pretty flash for a Hawkeye.
The previous owner Im sure has lightened the trigger, it feels far too light for a dangerous game rifle. Great for handloading though! I took it out today and hit it with 2208, although 2209 would be optimal I did have an open 4lb jug I wanted to use instead. More efficient, 50fps slower. It’ll be fine.
