Get a Warner / PNW sight , Gehman apertures (with diopter) and give it a whirl.
A factory 6.5 that shoots tight for around a grand is pretty sweet.

I really liked the Tubb rifle. I looked at one at Perry years back at the OK Weber booth. It was pretty sweet with a stiff price of admission.

Looks interesting. Biggest market will probably come from LEO.

Over quite a few years built and shot rifles for NRA Long Range matches usually based on Rem. 700 SA's w/ Douglas, Krieger, Shilen, etc. barrels plus purpose built expensive stocks of either glass or walnut. They all performed as expected w/ sub moa accuracy at ranges from 200-1000yds ;however, cost to build these rifles quite high. This Ruger rifle would seem to me able to perform just as well and at less than half the cost to build rifles I had in the past. If you are going to participate in the LR match game it takes not only dedication but good budget and it is not easy, in fact it is difficult to climb in the ratings.
If I were still "in the game" I would definitely go for one of these rifles, but I would definitely drop that "piece of glass" on the top for the rifle can easily be fitted for my Warner or Zelenak rear sight and Anshutz globe front sight, no bi pod, good sling handstop and then you would be all set for the matches. I would call this Ruger a "righteous rifle."

Thanks from firefuzz

I have a 70's era M77V in .220 Swift that will make you eat those words.

I have to admit that I am not entirely objective regarding this new Ruger bolt action AR 10 lookalike rifle. If I sounds like I am chewing on sour grapes, it is possibly because I am. Ruger beat us to the punch with this one.

I have been in discussion with M14.CA about porting over some of their knowledge and experience in alloy stock building to compete with the many other aftermarket bolt action alloy stock offerings. Of course, we wanted to offer more features, some unique features, and the best value available to enable our product to stand out in this already mature and varied market segment. We have had a few meetings about this and had arrived at a comprehensive feature list that .... remarkably ... would have produced a stock very very much like what Ruger now offers.

- Duplication of AR 15 / AR 10 look and feel and as much as possible, balance and ergonomics .... CHECK!

- AR 15 or AR 10 removable/interchangeable free floating forends .... CHECK!

- AR 15 furniture compatibility ... CHECK!

- SOLID fully adjustable side folding butt stock ... CHECK!

- where we were bogging down was in the choice of an action that would take DOUBLE STACK magazines, like the M14 or AR 10 designs. Not many bolt rifles do this well. And i wonder how exactly Ruger pulled this off? Given that Mossberg has the patent for their BI-mag bolt rifle in .308, and given that the Ruger Gunsite models take proprietary magazines, what has Ruger done different here??

Just another example of synchronous design evolution aka ... there are only so many ways you cans skin a cat ... aka ...great minds think alike.

Ruger really has hit a home run with this one ...
but I still don't need it since I already have my .308 rifle requirements well met with my Ruger American Compact and my DPMS LR308B.

Now awaiting some range reviews to see how well it actually shoots. But given that my EL CHEAPO .308 Ruger ultralight Compact shoots about 5/8" four shot 100 yds groups, I expect the accuracy from this new Ruger will be superb.

This looks like something that I am going to have to try out.

I have been looking and only found one for sale anywhere. It even looks like the distributors don't have it in stock.

The design isn't new.....same thing has been built around M700 actions, and I think Savage has one like it? states like Maryland and Pennsylvania you can't hunt with an AR (unless you disable the gas system). I imagine folks who want a hunting AR platform will buy into this rifle....especially the varmint crowd. I wouldn't mind using this a G'Hog rig.......jus say'n.

I had a M77V in .280 Rem that won't.

And IIRC , the heavy -V barrels were actually Douglas barrels.

Ruger had so many caliber options back then.......too bad you couldn't find a load for that rifle......a 280 G'Hog rig would be pretty stout....; )

I have M77V in .22-250 Rem that will shoot .5 MOA if you do your part. I bought it in the early 80's

Ruger has always made good, sturdy, accurate, workhorse rifles & handguns. But since Bill Ruger took the big dirt nap, Ruger has actually improved by leaps and bounds.

The SR 5.56, SR 7.62, AR 5.56, and the SR 1911 are phenomenol additions to the Ruger family. This new Precision rifle is another fantastic addition. I was toying with the idea of a Sako TRG 22 in .308, but this new Ruger is a new wrinkle in the mix. I want one!

(I think this rifle will be very popular in the Slave States, like CA, NY, MA, MD and CT., where semi's are pretty much banned. )

Let's see a report on it after you try it out.
I'm interested in it as well.

Change a few minor things and you have a low-budget tube gun match rifle.
