Wow. No. I'd go with the 6.5CM. Not sure whether "Ruger" and "Precision" should be in the same sentence let alone the same title though.

Ahhhh marketing

ExtremeX 07-17-2015 12:28 PM

I saw it... I'm not gona lie, its pretty tempting and looks like a good value. Ive had excellent luck with their Ruger American with my hand loads... shoots VERY well.

That LOOKS like a lot of rifle for $1000, but for the same price you can also get a Savage Model 12 Long Range Precision in 243, 6.5 Creedmoor, or 260...

I wouldn't be surprised if the 12 LRP is a better rifle, but Ruger has put together a temping package... I'm sure this will tempt the "I want a chassis on my bolt action" crowd into their camp.

Someone at Ruger is listening and doing their market research... I'm happy to see them offer it in calibers like 6.5 Creedmoor and 243 with the faster twists. AICS mag compatible...

Remington came out with a factory 260 I think, but its a light barrel and I don't think the twist was good for heavies.

Ruh roh. My wallet is going to get lighter.

Ruger American ~$400 (Entry level rifle)
Chassis system stock ~$400
Bottom Metal for mags ~$200
2 10rd Mags -$40
Crazy Multi-Adjustable Stock ~$150 (and more!)

You're at $1,200 already, and don't necessarily have a threaded heavy barrel (which this comes with).

It would really need to be terribly made, and shoot like crap to not be a decent value.

Mega-Ken 07-17-2015 12:46 PM

What round would you recommend, noob question.

JMP 07-17-2015 1:10 PM

Why do they always spell "Creedmore" instead of "Creedmoor". The only 6.5 name variation that I am aware of is the 6.5 Grendel and 6.5 Grenade are the same.

As Toast says, precision and Ruger is an oxymoron. I'd like to get a folding stock for my Lapua action, but the way the rifle is designed, I could, but the piece would cost me $3,000, so I just suck it up and haul it around, squeezing it to fit an XL drag back. The folding stock is a nice feature once you go to 30" barrels and longer, but most of them do not have a strong enough hinge for my liking.

ExtremeX 07-17-2015 1:22 PM

Unless its as strong as the AICS folding stock, I would have actually preferred it if it was fixed. If there was a hint of wobble in the hinge it would drive me nuts.

I am not aware of a stock stronger than AI's design because it's just a solid block of aluminum.

AI went with all engineering, no frills on their stock. Their engineers did not need to work around today's required appearance of an AR-15.

The Ruger Precision Rifle incorporates an in-line recoil path directly from the rear of the receiver to the buttstock, eliminating the need for traditional bedding or a "chassis" system, and provides maximum accuracy potential by simplifying the rifle's response to recoil. The Ruger® Precision MSR stock is adjustable for length of pull and comb height, offering a proper fit over a wide range of shooter sizes, outerwear, and shooting positions. While easily adjusted, the length of pull and comb height changes lock solidly in place and will not move while firing. The stock also features multiple QD sling attachment points, a bottom Picatinny rail for monopod attachment, and a soft rubber buttpad. The left-folding stock hinge (which provides access to the bolt) is attached to an AR-style buffer tube and accepts AR-style stocks.

The Ruger Precision Rifle features a Multi-Magazine Interface, a patent-pending system that functions interchangeably with side-latching M110/SR25/DPMS/Magpul® magazines and front-latching AI-style magazines. Two, 10-round Magpul PMAG® magazines are shipped with each rifle.

The highly accurate, free-floated barrel is cold hammer-forged from 4140 chrome-moly steel, and features 5R rifling for minimum bullet upset. The rifle is specified with minimum bore and groove dimensions, minimum headspace, and a centralized chamber. The medium contour (.75" at the muzzle) barrel features a thread protector over the 5/8"-24 threads, which allow for the fitment of muzzle accessories such as sound suppressors. Barrels can be replaced easily by a competent gunsmith using AR-style wrenches and headspace gauges.

The Ruger Precision Rifle's "upper" receiver and one-piece bolt are precision CNC-machined from pre-hardened 4140 chrome-moly steel to minimize distortion. The three-lug bolt with 70-degree throw is easily manipulated and features dual cocking cams, and a smooth-running, full-diameter bolt body. An oversized bolt handle is fitted for positive bolt manipulation and features 5/16"- 24 threads for easy customization. The "lower" receiver is precision CNC-machined from aerospace-grade 7075-T6 aluminum forging and is Type III hard-coat anodized for maximum durability. The magazine well front is contoured for a positive grip for bracing against shooting supports. The rifle also sports a 20-MOA Picatinny rail secured with four, #8-40 screws for increased long-range elevation capabilities.

The Ruger Precision Rifle can easily be configured with AR-style grips, safety selectors, and handguards. The rifle is equipped with a Ruger extended trigger-reach AR-style grip, a left-side, 45-degree safety selector, and a Samson Evolution Keymod handguard. A short section of Picatinny rail is provided with the rifle for the fitment of accessories such as a bipod, and a QD sling cup also is included.

The Ruger Marksman Adjustable™ trigger provides a crisp let-off and is externally adjustable with a pull weight range of 2.25 to 5.0 pounds. The hex wrench for the pull weight adjustment provided with the rifle is stored in the bolt shroud, as is a bolt disassembly tool for accessing the striker and striker channel.

The Ruger Precision Rifle is available in three models: .308 Win. with 1:10 twist, 20" barrel weighing, 9.7 lbs.; 6.5 Creedmoor with a 1:8 twist, 24" barrel, weighing 10.6 pounds; and .243 Win. with a 1:7.7 twist, 26" barrel, weighing 11.0 pounds.

Crap. I might just have to buy one to play around with.

Cool but is it accurate?

I once asked Ruger customer service what sort of accuracy I should expect from an 18" gunsite scout. I did mention most of the reviews found online where not all that impressive.

The response was all Ruger rifles are factory tested to be under 1" MOA @ 50 yards! So 2" at 200, Not exactly precision, especially for a 308. If my .22 CZ shot that poorly I'd be a sad sad man.

reviews show it to have sub-moa accuracy check the reviews above

alpha_romeo_XV 07-17-2015 3:19 PM

I saw that Turner's add today also. Which caliber are you thinking about .. .243, 6.5 or .308?

jsigone 07-17-2015 3:27 PM

watching with interest....this might be a cheaper option than rebarrel/tune my aac

toby 07-17-2015 3:38 PM

Personally I don't care for this type of rifle design. But Ruger makes good products.

BigBamBoo 07-17-2015 3:40 PM

Well...at least they got the rifling right for the .243 (1:7.7).

atolax25 07-17-2015 3:42 PM

Looks cool. Reminds me of the MDT chassis which also follows AR styling and uses AR furniture.

People might **** on this for being too much like an AR but for someone who already has lots of spare AR parts, this might be an even more attractive buy.

jtake 07-17-2015 3:43 PM

Other than Turner's, anyone see who else might be carrying them, particularly in NorCal area? I have been thinking about a 6.5 and this would be a great entry to that caliber based on Lowlight's review.

If we had a Turner's up in the Bay Area, I would be there today to put my money down, particularly at that price.

.308

BigBamBoo 07-17-2015 3:44 PM

At least the got the .243 rifling twist right (1:7.7).

BillyGoatCrawler 07-17-2015 3:46 PM

Bolt action in the gas op/semi auto section. Nice.

Ruger is smart for targeting the tactical precision market that is blowing up.

GimpsUnlimited 07-17-2015 3:50 PM

Will it be CA friendly? I think it will meet the 30" length requirement folded. But isn't a bullet button or grip-wrap needed?

BigBamBoo 07-17-2015 3:52 PM

^ it is a BOLT action rifle. No BB, etc., apply.

joefrank64k 07-17-2015 3:59 PM

Wow...the SH review is pretty positive. I'm digging the multi-magazine thing, too. Hmmm....

SkyHawk 07-17-2015 4:00 PM

I'd go for the 6.5

That's the first thing I said to myself... I have the Standard American in .243 as my beater hunting rifle and that's a 1:9 twist.

I was happy when I saw the 223 in 1:8 twist too.

I do like the Predator line... I was considering getting one just for kicks in 6.5 Creedmoor.

BillyGoatCrawler 07-17-2015 4:22 PM

Brilliant of them to capitalize on both the exploding long range market and the tacticool market. Standardized mags. I believe the reviews on accuracy too.

I'm going to get one if it checks out better than the mossy mvp

John Browning 07-17-2015 4:48 PM

Dang, at that price can't really pass up a 6.5.

Does this thing take AR barrels? I'm confused about the whole being able to take any AR handguard. That would imply taking a barrel nut for an AR...which means the barrel too? If it is that modular, hell yes.

I doubt it’s a standard AR barrel… The action and bolt seems to be based off the Ruger American which would mean a different style “barrel extension”

I’d like to see someone like Randall tear one apart and critique it…
