    Pretty hard to resist at what is looking to be ~ 1000 bucks off the shelf. I have a really nice scope that needs a home and I've been wanting to get my feet wet in 6.5 creedmore so it looks like a winner.

    Especially since it's going to cost less than building something I mean even a 5r is more expensive. In fact, even an sps tactical with a trigger, a b&c stock is going to be right there price wise.

    I honestly do t see how you could really go wrong with the ruger for the price if you are looking for a nice "precision" rifle. I mean super adjustable, lots of features...

    I had been thinking about doing a CADEX build at some point in the future. That just went bye bye.

    its a fact, after successfully designing the Russain Army's new Sniper rifle, (Sputkick) Steven Seagal went on to salvage Ruger's then, failing effort to design theirs.




    Yoo my friends are witness to that revelation!

    See him demonstares like so:

    My friend shot one in 308 at a ruger demo thing. He said it was pretty awesome even though he didn't have it completely dialed in for him.

    It looks like good bang for the buck. Once I convert my Rem. 700 over to the MDT Tac21 chassis and add a Magpul PRS stock and AICS mags, I'm pretty close to that price.

    They need a .300 Win Mag.

    The rifle includes the buttstock, but not the optics.

    That is pretty impressive. Although I wish they would have went stainless instead of chf.

    Performance notwithstanding, I'll bet its a bit on the cobby side in the flesh. Action-wise anyway.

    I find it sort of strange that it's being released in .243. I understand 308 and 6.5c but I'd expect 260 or 300wm rather than 243. Don't get me wrong, I love 243 for deer and even caribou but seems a strange caliber to offer in a "precision" package....to be fair though I'm not very active in the precision shooting world.

    The .243 and 6.5 Creedmoor both use the .308 as the parent case (the .260 might too). It's an easy way to build a new rifle, everything is the same except for the barrel. And .243 is a very popular round.

    I realize the 243 is popular and based off the 308, just seems an odd choice for this sort of rifle. None of the guys I know who are serious about this type of shooting use a 243.

    Not as adjustable but look at the Sig Sauer 3000 also. I love that gun, i'm just not big on it being a .308. To big of caliber for what I shoot.

    I wish companies would start making a 22-250 like this. I love my A Bolt and but it's time to upgrade to something a little nicer.

    I HAD a dig 3000, the older one with the Macmillan stock, the newer ones just have a plastic stock but last year were available at wal marts for less than 1000 bucks.

    I ended up ditching it because mags are absolutely impossible to find as sog has stopped making them and no other company has picked up the aftermarket support. When mags do pop up, they fetch 100s of dollars.

    Predator hunters tend to dig .243. In my opinion, a .308 with 125grn ballistic tips provides like trajectory, but more ass when it hits, and won't burn the throat out of the barrel nearly as quick.

    Maybe Ruger had a shitload of 6mm blanks on hand, and that played into the decision?
