No joke.

Precision rifles selling for $2,000 dollars or more and not easily accessible to the public especially terrorists is one thing but reasonably precision rifles selling for a $1,000 or less easily packable and easily modified that anyone can acquire including terrorists well any student of human nature knows where this is going to go.

Mark my words I'm a prophet in the wilderness. We are at war with no borders or boundaries.

You guys do realize that you can order an aluminum chassis from MANY companies to drop your 700 action in and have the same type rifle. So being "outlawed".........not going to happen. At it's core, it's just a bolt action rifle in a "chassis" instead of a "stock". This thing is no more of a terrorist threat as any other bolt gun labeled long range, tactical, sniper, or what have you

And Derby Dude........."prophet" is not exactly the term I would use............LOL!!!

Bringing a bolt gun to a terrorist attack is like bringing a knife to a gunfight. Besides, their religion requires them to use an AK.

Never say never when it comes to gun control. I've live long enough to see how much has been lost to gun control.

It's very true what you say about 700 actions and similar bolt actions but this precision rifle is a modular rifle that can be easily broken down into component parts. That changes everything.

You guys can laugh all you want but when what I say happens remember who told you first.

One hardly needs 1/2 MOA to achieve what you claim. A Ruger American with scope from the factory costs less than $600 and is just as lethal. The Ruger PR cost $1100 and you'll still need a scope. Bottom line, your posts about the Ruger PR don't make sense.
I am laughing but it's not with you....

Even I had to laugh at that one.

We have had terrorists use sniper type rifles before and this would be a prefect rifle for sniper work.

It does if you understand human nature.

I doubt it, we'd see a long action Gunsight already if it was an option. I don't see Ruger making another proprietary magazine anytime soon. Next caliber will be 223.

Man Derby, you are WAY out in left field on this. You need TOOLS to change the barrel. Its not a movie screw on barrel. Put a folding stock on a Savage, bring the barrel nut wrench along and you have the SAME thing.

Lots of "tin foil hat" thinking going on here............LOL!!!

So there you go. You said it.

A terrorist can use a bolt gun or any gun any time. Ruger making a precision rifle for legal gun owners (like all their guns) to use for a legal sport has nothing to do with what a terrorist or criminal does.

Because guns don't kill people. People do.

So 'marking your words' is not prophetic at all.

I like the rifle and that Ruger is promoting the sport.

This is certainly a game changer for those looking to get into precision rifle shooting. My brother and I researched rifles and builders for his precision rifle. I'm sure had this been released a year ago and left handed he would've jumped at it. Instead he had one custom built with the price tag near $5k sans scope. Scope cost him another $1900.

As for caliber selection I think the offerings are great. Well two of them anyways. The Creedmore and the 243Win. With the 1:7.7" twist of the 243 you can shoot the 107gr SMK and the 115gr Bergers and other custom High BC VLD bullets. Many of the 105gr-115gr bullets have higher BC than the .308 caliber 175gr VLD target bullets. Pushing them at 3000fps is also not uncommon and hitting steel at extreme ranges is easier with the flatter trajectories.

As someone pointed out the 6.5 Creedmore has a trajectory very similar to the 300WM shooting Match ammo. 6.5mm caliber bullets have some incredible ballistic coefficient bullets.

Neither the 243Win or the 6.5 Creedmore have much in the way of recoil.

As to the comments on how this rifle is going to be used as a terrorist sniper rifle. It's a foolish comment that is usually spoken by someone who has watched to many Hollywood action films and think that all black rifles are evil and will jump out of the safe or closet and go on killing sprees by themselves. Or perhaps they will posses the person with evil thoughts and cause them to go on a killing spree.

Most modern bolt action rifles are capable of sub MOA. They have the ability to shoot at extreme long range right out of the box when paired with a quality optic and someone who is proficient at shooting.

Right now those evil terrorists are using old Mosin and Enfield rifles to shoot at our troops in Afghanistan. A battle rifle has the range that an assault rifle doesn't.

I have put a scope on my CZ 550 6.5 Swede and have rang steel targets at 1200yds. I did it to prove to my brother that he didn't need to drop $5000 on a rifle to shoot long range. I did the same thing with my bone stock Rem 700ADL in 243Win.

I wonder if it will make it down under looks a tad tactical so may not get past oz gun laws, that folding stock for bolt removal be the 1st hurdle

Frank Galli over at Snipershide.com is creaming his jeans over this rifle. He's former Marine Sniper and he actully had input into this gun. He's saying there's no reason it can't go up against a $4k~5k custom. And Frank never spews BS. Knowledgeable posters are lamenting they just blew $4k on a new 6.5mm CM when they could of bought a Ruger PR.

Barrel is user replacable, there's no reason you couldn't have one gun and 3 barrels for 243, 6.5mm CM and 308, all using the same mag. Shoot varmits with 243, 1 mile with 6.5mm CM and elk with 308.
