New From Ruger: The Ruger Precision Rifle
By Jeremy S on July 18, 2015

Coming soon to a dealer near you — as soon as this week, actually — is a brand new rifle from Ruger that’s taking aim at the high-end, ultra-expensive, ultra-accurate chassis rifle market. Oh, except that full MSRP on the “Ruger Precision Rifle” in .308 Win, 6.5 Creedmoor, or .243 Win is only $1,399.

Interesting for the price. SJ 40

Agreed the 308 or perhaps the 6.5 if one really enjoyed handloading. SJ 40
On Ruger's website, it was made mention of this rifle being accurate to 1,600 yards. What caliber, what ammunition?

Patriot Ordinance Factory, POF, also has this type of weapon, for considerably higher cost...

It seems to me that "Ruger" and "Precision" mix about as well as oil and water. ;)

I'm sure it will be a solid rifle though.
Yeah, they seem to be pretty hit or miss.

Wait, what did I say? :rofl:

As much as I like and own Rugers, I have to agree on this. LOL. This rifle does nothing for me, but if their accuracy claims are true, not a bad price. Interesting caliber choices too. Hopefully they add some other long range calibers to the mix. Looking at the platform though, they'd probably all be short action. I will most definitely pass on this one.

I'd call them accurate, but not precision. They're pretty crude compared to some higher end rimfires.
Totally agree. But for the price...the only way to get significantly better accuracy is to spend two to three times as much (or more). With the right ammo mine gets between 1 1/2 & 2" at 50 yards, and that satisfies me. I can't afford to do much better than that anyway.

Oh yeah, it's certainly an accurate pistol, especially for the money.

I consider this to be divine intervention. I went to a gun show today and was thaaat close to getting a Remington 700 in .308, but something in the back of my mind said no, this isn't what you really want.

This looks to be more what I have in mind, a dedicated bench rifle rather than having to customize an all purpose utility rifle for bench shooting.

There is a 1000 yard range about an hour's drive from here that requires members qualify for the various ranges before they can shoot there. I've held off because while I love my milsurps and can get lucky from time to time at distance, am under no illusions any of them are acceptable for real precision shooting.

In spite of the views of many, I have lots of Ruger firearms and consider them all great for what they are, in their price point.

Looks like a winner... Then again most any bolt gun does what I ask, ie meat on the table accuracy in hunting.
