I agree. Hopefully a long action for such things is in the works.
You have to consider what this rifle is, an entry level Precision Rifle built to compete with much more expensive rifles.

The nice thing is that if someone wants an affordable rifle they still have that Ruger American option or a little more weight but still affordable the Predator.
It is good that Ruger listens and fills the need for these markets, and even the Hawkeye that falls between those.

When you look at this new offering and compare with those it competes with, it kicks butt in price. To get the same with a build or some factory options, 2,500-3000 could be spent.

I agree with the long action but starting with the short action is a logical move. I would bet we will see a 300WM within a year or so.

$1000~$1100 street price, Ruger just devastated the used precision bolt gun market. I have been considering something to complement my 700 SPS in 223, watching ARMSLIST everyday for something at the right price. Then this comes out, a 6.5mm Creedmoor version may be just the ticket....

Not really.........This will be an entry level rifle for guys maybe wanting to try some long range stuff. They tried to make it look similar to a Remington XM2010, but it won't be near the same thing. Nor will it be as good as a custom build

Might give one a shot, but need some more caliber offerings. I understand 308 and the Creedmore, but not really the 243........unless of course just because it was easy in the SA chassis. LA is tougher though, because of available magazines etc

That's who buys those used rifles, this is a much better option compared to a 700 action on a McMillian stock with a fancy barrel/trigger. The Ruger PR uses AR derivative barrels (very easy to change/upgrade), standard mags, AR stocks, 4lbs lighter for less cost out-the-door than used.

Initial thoughts:

Not one for the whole tactical style so the stock really does nothing for me at all. Overall look isn't displeasing though. Certainly nothing I'm gonna hold my breath waiting for but it'll be nice to consider.

I'm am more curious about what other models may follow using this same basic platform/receiver. Hard to believe they'd make the investment in the resources to develop just this single rifle.

I'm very interested in this rifle. I just hope that Ruger makes enough of them to actually see one in a shop.

I may give one a go in 308, just to see how it stacks up

Of course the long action would no doubt have proprietary magazines, etc.

It has been done before, look up the BN36 from Noreen Arms.

Being a southpaw and old it doesn't do much for me. I'll stick with steel and wood. I'm sure for the black rifle crowd it's a winner until the gun control geeks get the rifle outlawed.

Until it's outlawed that style rifle is probably the rifle of the future for many although for now I don't think it'll replace steel and wood anytime soon.

In looking over the comments and glancing over one article (one article was blocked using my system) the primary purpose for this rifle is for some terrorist to acquire one to commit mass murder and gain more gun control.

Makes one wonder if Ruger is in the pay of the government. Just wondering.

I don't know you but I suppose that was a joke, right ?

I was thinking that too until I read this:


6.5 mm (.264") bullets, in general, are known for their relatively high ballistic coefficients, and have seen success in rifle competition. The 6.5mm Creedmoor is capable of duplicating the trajectory of the .300 Winchester Magnum while generating significantly lower recoil.

I'm a blue & walnut guy too. But the Modern Sporting Rifle has come to dominate the market. For many reasons (80% build your own, endless customization, reasonable price and availability of parts, accuracy, wide range of calibers, etc.).

And this particular rifle is custom designed for a precision sport that has been well established for a long time.

As for banning it, the MSR is just too widespread now for that to happen. The government can't put that genie back in the bottle unless they take the blue & walnut guns and handguns too.

As for what a criminal or coward terrorist does, they can do that with your rifle too. Or your car. Or your pressure cooker. They are criminal terrorists remember?

So blaming the ArmaLite Rifle/MSR and/or Ruger for what a less that human deserving of death terrorist does, makes you sound like the lunatic leftanistas.
