I bought one of the new Ruger Precision Rimfire rifles a couple weeks ago and have been having fun with it out on my 50 yard range in the back yard. Been trying several different types of ammo to see which one shoots the best. I just picked up two more different type of target ammo to try in it but haven't had time to try them yet . We have been busy getting ready to take our horses for a few days trail riding which is another form of therapy I enjoy.

Sounds like a banner day Jay! Nothing better than going out and enjoying a relaxing time shooting. I have done that before where you are out there shooting and someone else comes around to shoot. You exchange a few pleasantries and perhaps try each others firearms. A nice safe enjoyable time with another of the like mind. Of course a good fun time like that with a gun never makes the news... Hope you had some fine eats after!

I now bought one of the RPR in 6.5 Creedmoor and wow does it shoot right out of the box> Neighbor that I shoot with came over when he heard me sighting it in and watched me put one through the same hole at 50 yards sighting it in. I moved it out to 100 yards on my range at the house and it is shooting 1/4" groups with factory ammo! Hope to go over to the club and shoot 200 yards and see how it shoots. I know another range where I can shoot up to 750 yards. I am really impressed on how it shoots!

Charlie,
On my Alaska trip and a two day class on long range precision shooting, there were 2 guys with the RPR in 6.5.
Both do not have much experience slinging lead downrange, but at the end of day two they both hit a clay piegon
at 1000 yards!!! Took both a dozen shots, but they hit 'em. Seen it through my own scope.
One MOA at 1000 yards is approx 10 inches, so to hit a 4 inch clay is less than 1/2 MOA shooting.
So, ya that RPR will shoot..... Have fun!!! :D

Cheers,
JAY
I do not "own" these guns, I am but the next caretaker
