I sort of like the trigger that came on my RPR. I haven't even adjusted the way it came from the factory yet.
Timenys triggers are very nice. Curious to know how you like it compared to the factory one.
Thanks

I shot an early RPR in 6.5 and thought the trigger was the best part of the rifle, but that's just me.

Let us know how you like the Timney when you get it in. I've been reading up on the Timney for the RPR myself. Apparently some are having troubles getting them to fit, requiring some filing while others fit like a glove. Hope yours fits well.

Mine fit just fine. I did have a slight issue removing the Ruger trigger. Mine is set for an 8oz 1st stage and 2lb second. I prefer the Timney plain and simple. There is no wiggly piece in the trigger itself. The Timney is a true two stage trigger. Very smooth with very crisp break.

Here was the latest outing. I happened to be in Richfield, UT where they have a really nice public range. Free too! I had the range to myself Friday afternoon. I you look closely you can see large target stands for four benches going out to 600 yards. The bars are color coded by distance.

Beautiful country out there. Glad to see you are really up and about. So the IMR4166 really works for you?? Going to try it in my M1A Scout and see how it does.

Thanks from SteedGun

Yes, IMR 4166 has been very good. I hope it helps keep the fouling down and they claim it is much better on handling temperature swings. I have one more target that is even better but I need to get the mic on it and then take the pic.

Thanks from battle front

Here is the best target of the shoot. I was testing IMR 4166 35.4-35.7 grains.







My next shoot will also involve a 200 or 300 yard target.

Nice groups with that powder!
I wish I had a free public range with a beautiful view like you have there.

Thanks from SteedGun

Me too! I just happened to be in Richfield for a family event. This range is three hours south of me. I try to shoot here every time I go to Richfield. Click on the picture of the target stands and see if you can zoom in. I think I enabled that through Photobucket. When you zoom in you can see all the stands setup downrange. Try Ctrl +

I have a SureFire muzzle brake on order for this rifle but I will not change it out soon. The SureFire is a brake and suppressor adapter I have on some of my other rifles. The more I shoot the RPR the more I like the Ruger factory muzzle brake so I will stay with that until I get a suppressor.

Finally got back to my bench today and loaded up 50 rounds of IMR 4166 35.6gr. I plan on putting them over my chrono later this week. Another dumb business trip in the middle. I wish my business would stop getting in the way of my life, right?

Nice! You'll enjoy that.

Depends on where you're flying through. I set off a magnetometer in London-Heathrow with a pewter necklace on a copper chain.

My recovery rifle(s) were no where near as nice. I bought a pair of Universal Carbines, one slightly over 100,000 on S/N and a another 300,000. $400 for the pair and 500rds Armsco .30 Carbine.

My last drain is out, they took hopefully the last blood for my white counts, still don't know why my lymphatic system is swollen but I sure do appreciate everyone's prayers...

Hope the original poster is doing well.

Thanks from SteedGun
