Model 77R Ruger, .30-06, ca. 1979, that can shoot sub-moa. It's also put 2 Remington Accelerators (not known for super accuracy) in the same hole @ 100 yards. I've also taken lots of ground hogs, and my share of foxes with it. Light .308 bullets over IMR 4350 for varmints, and 165gr BTHP for deer. Not built as a varmint gun, but one of the most accurate rifles out of the box, I've ever owned.

I always thought that the "pre-MkII" rifles were the best built and most accurate. I've owned a few of the newer ones, and the accuracy has seemed to suffer.

Thanks from firefuzz

So far, I'm madly in love with the new Ruger Precision Rifle. Ruger has become so innovative since Old Bill went under. This rifle should be very popular in the 'Slave States' where semis are banned. I was thinking on getting a Sako TRG-22, but the Ruger may be just as good, at 40% of the price.

I'd like to read some long range & MOA accuracy reviews before I plunk down the dollars, though.

Tell that to the long range G'Hog hunters in PA and MD......the owners of three shops I frequent are getting requests left and right. I am an avid Ground Grizzly hunter...and hate the fact I can't use my AR's unless I remove the gas tube. This rifle will serve as an AR "Placebo"......; )

That will probably be a while... Ruger fans are about as rabid as Glock fans, etc. There is no doubt they pack some good value in their offerings, however.

Interesting concept, I don't see why it wouldn't be a good shooter, and you KNOW the aftermarket will warm up to this like a magnet to iron filings. I could do without the goofy adjustable stock, however.

I drank the cool aid and ordered one in 308 today. They are saying delivery around the end of the month for 1,075 plus tax title and licence. Already have the glass and rings.

Ruger Precision Rifle or Sage EBR chassis...

I cannot make up mind. I've been contemplating this decision for a couple weeks now.

6.5 Creedmoor will make this rifle shine.

I got to shoot the rep sample today in 6.5. Rep said it had roughly 2,000 down the pipe. First 3 were nearly a cloverleaf at 200 yds. It is heavier than it looks but not a boat anchor.

The stock is better than it looks. Actually I like it better than any adjustable stock I've used before.

I've had them on order since the morning I got the release on it. I'm going to have to sell a kidney or put the wife on the corner to get it and some great glass for it.

It is nice. I can't wait to see them do it in .300 mag and .22-250.

Of course someone will be doing aftermarket barrels for it before long.

Thanks from MAC702

Latest issue of American Rifleman has an article on one in 6.5 Creedmore. Sub-1in groups at 100yds , but that doesn't show me much. My Savage 10FP will do that all day.

The AR article states sub .75 accuracy with factory ammo. And this with a hammer forged barrel. It uses a barrel nut so fitting a new barrel will be a snap. I expect that with a good barrel and handloads .2 -.3 is highly likely.
70 bolt lift and dual cocking cams will make it viable for XTC shooters.
Put a 30" 6BRX barrel on it and you will have one heckuva sling LR gun for quite a bit less than going full custom utilizing an Eliseo chassis. Although I don't think the stock is as adjustable as an Eliseo. Sometimes having too many adjustments is a real performance killer.
I like it!

But all the AR platform needs is a top quality barrel. Wonder if Ruger uses their own make barrels.
That has been my experience --- I seem to recall when Ruger tried to supply our Palma team with some rifles --- that did not work out to well.
Don't get me wrong - Ruger is a great company with great products - but they have not fared well in the precision rifle games.

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.
I agree on the Tubb rifle - I think it is no longer made (not positive about that but Creedmoor no longer list them) --- Another aspect is the trigger ... the Tubb used an Anschutz --- how good will the Ruger trigger be and can an aftermarket be fitted?
Personally the concept is great - I will add a word to what was said in a previous quote - "potentially" like a Tubb rifle for less $$......
I still want to see an evaluation of the trigger --- and then there is the barrel.
If a person had to upgrade the trigger and upgrade the barrel - then the price structure starts to look diffidently.
Would be great to see an experienced across the course shooter slap a Warner rear and somebody's good globe on the front and see how the factory gun would preform.....
It may well be it is very competitive as is - time will hopefully tell.
