I would love to hear about how your Lipsey’s Ruger Hawkeye African 9.3x62 shoots! The 9.3x62 is a very accurate round, but I’ve held off on getting one of these particular rifles because the barrel contour seems too thin for good accuracy, and I’ve seen no full reviews of this rifle where several factory and handloads have been tested. This may be a bad sign. I know this is not a prairie dog rifle, but I would like to able to consistently hit a soup can at 150 yards. Most folks look at 3, 4, and, 5 shot groups, and if these rifles group well, I would be very encouraged to get one. However, for big game rifles, I am most interested in where the first shot lands, and since thin barrels tend to heat up quickly, shooting for groups may not be the best indicator of field accuracy. Thanks in advance for reports and advice.
