A couple of years ago, if I told you there was a precision rifle available for around $1,000 that would shoot groups smaller than one inch at 100 yards all day long you wouldn’t have believed me.
The progress in rifle, scope and ammunition development, driven by an interest in long range precision shooting, has resulted in the Ruger Precision Rifle, introduced a year ago, and now, an upgraded version Ruger calls the Enhanced Precision Rifle. It shares the features of the original, like the light, adjustable trigger, folding stock adjustable for length of pull and height of the comb and the cold hammer forged barrel.
Other features of the RPR include the ability to use different magazines – the rifle ships with two, 10 round Magpul PMag magazines – and chamberings in 6.5 Creedmoor and .308 Winchester. The standard Precision Rifle is available in .243 Winchester as well.
The folks at Ruger listen to their customers and shortly after the Precision Rifle (RPR) came out, shooters began tinkering with them and reporting their results.
