Ruger RPR

I had an opportunity to fire the new Ruger RPR at a local gun shop/range here in OKC. H&H gun range has been hosting various vendors (7/16-1/18) for promoting the shooting sport. Ruger supplied one of the new RPR.s in 308...for visitors to shoot. H&H set up the rifle with a can..a scope and a bipod. With a very modest fee of ten dollars....one could shoot three different firearms. It was a very interesting experience...the trigger was very, very crisp! Smooth bolt action. Was told the bare rifle would retail for under $1000.

Looks like a bolt action SR-556 to me . . . But that is a good thing!

I will definitely be looking into it in the .308

When I get some time in the future I want to start participating in 1,000 years shoots at the range. This maybe a good platform to enter on.

I am not going to rush, to many kinks in recent releases so I will wait and see some rang reports.

Don't forget they were going for affordability here.

Honestly I'd rather have it in 22-250. But 300 win mag might give me a little something to think about.

Very interesting! I've been thinking about a .308 for a while. This just might get it done. Really glad now that I didn't jump on the GSR or the SR762. I'd like to see some magnum calibers as well - 7mmRemMag would be sweet for me but probably will never happen. One in .223, able to accept AR mags, seems like would be a good idea as well. Will definitely be checking them out at the LGS soon.

It looks way cool, honestly for me I'd spend the dollars on a Gunsite Scout in 7.62 if I had to choose......but I'm not into long range precision rifle shooting, and I like more "meat and potatoes" rifles with iron sights.

If I had deep pockets I'd already have my GSR in both 7.62 and 5.56, and the 30-06 Guide Rifle, and the 5.56 American Ranch rifle........then I'd get a Precision rifle in .243 just to have something different.

IMHO if you're looking for an affordable .243 the Ruger American is probably a better choice.

I agree. Hopefully a long action for such things is in the works.
