New from north Texas

This is a discussion on New from north Texas within the New Users forums, part of the Lobby category; I bought an RPR (.308) off the shelf yesterday at a local gun store. Took it out to sight it in and wasn't too pleased ...

New from north Texas

I bought an RPR (.308) off the shelf yesterday at a local gun store. Took it out to sight it in and wasn't too pleased with the results. I chalked it up to a new barrel and today I spent some time searching for possible solutions (barrel break in, etc) and found this site.

I decided to go ahead and join because I didn't think there would be a better place for support on a Ruger than straight from the source. So...... thanks for allowing me to join!!

Welcome from Nebraska.

I have joined after purchasing a RPR as well.

Don't fret, that .308 has plenty of potential, as do you. Try different ammo and bullet weights and I'm sure that you find a load, if not several, that your gun will like.
