I bought a Ruger Hawkeye SS in .338 Fed a few years ago and followed that up with another Hawkeye SS in .358 Win. I've been wanting one more medium SS Hawkeye, a .35 Whelen and finally took possession of a NIB Hawkeye SS in .35 Whelen this past week. I already had what I figured to be a near perfect scope, a Zeiss Conquest 2.5-8x32 and had it mounted the same day I got it home. Action is decently smooth and I have no complaints on the LC6 trigger either. As soon as it cools a bit, it's off to the range to try some 200gr Hornady Superformance loads at 2900 FPS. Here's a peek and a look at the other two Hawkeyes.
