Got you to laugh anyways didn't it? That was my goal. Its probably just as good as the CC if I put my Heart fiber-tech 28" barrel on it, all joking aside.

Ill bet in the right hands its just as good if not better pal the cc arms are not what they claim. I do love mine now but it took some fine tuning an alot of re loads to get the voodoo down range

Well iv done alot of fine tuning to the Hawk as well when it comes to reloads but it ment alot to ME when Calc said it's one of the most accurate rifles he's ever seen. That's saying alot. That was right after I made the longer barrels(24") no less.

The Hawk is punching 2.345" holes at 500 yards w the fiber-tech 28" barrel shooting 175 gr Barnes vortex sitting on 95 grain of imr 4590 w CCI magnum Gold class primers. That's on a fairly calm day. Calm as in 5 MPH cross winds and 83°

That's good shooting. That load I listed isn't even the load that barrel really likes. It prefers 91 grains of imr 4595
