New Ruger Precision Rifle – Wow!

The New Ruger Precision Rifle is a bolt action long range shooting machine that is highly configurable with an in-line recoil path and external adjustable trigger from 2.5 to 5 pounds. Now that is a mouthfull.

I would like to test one this spring/summer at 600 yards. I would put my Leupold VX-6 on it and zoom out at 18x. Greg H. from Indiana shot a 5 shot 1.72 inch group from 500 yards with the rifle in 243 Winchester using Hornady A-Max 105 grain heads.

Mike Fifer, CEO of Ruger has issued a challenge to beat his 1600 yard record with the Rifle. This rifle is quite unique in many of its features. Read about the features at the Ruger site below. It can shoot 308 Winchester,243 Winchester, 6.5 Creedmoor
