Got mine today in 308. Mounted the glass on it, 50mm Leupold with H 58 Reticle and Arms 22 Med rings. Will take it to the range tomorrow and follow up with the firing report.

Hey just a heads up My good friend who was in A stan with me twice just had his ruger scout blow up in his face a few weeks ago with factory ammo... He is fine thankfully and had it checked by a gun smith but ruger wanted to inspect it also. Now they say it was the ammo but won't return his rifle or at least whats left of it. I personally have completely moved away from ruger products due to this and 3 other rifles with problems between myself and the same friend 2x ruger 10/22 not built properly, jamming/grinding and 1x mini 14 with horrible gas problems because they drilled the gas port to big so it just slammed the receiver, then rebarreled by ruger and still shot like 5-6 moa. Sorry but I wont buy ruger any more!

Thanks from daniel43 and MeatyMac

I think I could like this in a 308...I already reload for that....but...another caliber isn't all that bad I guess because the Creedmore is definitely something I'd like to try.

I have the 6.5 Creedmore version but have yet to shoot it. I am just trying to get time to go to the range.

I've got one in .308 off of gunbroker. Haven't shot it yet. I'm debating on which glass to get. My goal is an effective 800 yard gun. Any recommendations on a scope? There's almost too many options. I love the trigger on mine and its adjustable. But right out of the box I think it's a real winner. If the accuracy is as good as Ruger and other shooters online are claiming it's a real steal at the price !!

...never owned a Ruger long gun, but I will testify that both my P89's are dead nut shooters and totally bullet proof (odd play on words but you get the point)....as far as the tacticool goes, ya think there's enough adjustment in the rear?...I'll wait for the range report.

Has anyone tried using a m14 magazine in your rifle yet? According to the American rifleman article about the new Rugers, most will not work with a m14 magazine.
TIA for any information.

Thanks from Kazz

I will take a magazine tomorrow and see if it fits. Mine is a 6.5 so I won't be able to see if it feeds. And I won't have it out of layaway until late December.

M14 mags work well in the RPR. They are a bit long for my liking so I tend to stay with the 2 provided Pmags. I don't reload so I rarely have an OAL issues and if I do have a longer round, I just hand feed.

M14 "AA" mag:



Larue Mag, basically the same length but I believe a bit more for OAL:

Here are a couple of pictures of mine





I live in Iowa so the Can is fake. Hoping the change in the Iowa laws goes through so I can get a real one.

M1a mags work fine but they are a little loose in that they jiggle a bit.
My RPR in .308 was .5 moa (168's) on my first range trip after sighting in. I'm sure it will do better once I get used to it.
