Though there are a variety of reasons you might own a gun, there are few more important than preparing for an essential tactical assignment. In these situations, there are a great many factors that can come into play. First and foremost, you want to consider a gun that has match-level accuracy, one that is able to ensure any shot you take will hit its mark. Second, you need to consider the reliability of the weapon and be sure that every time you pull that trigger you will fire off a round. Third, you should look at the overall durability and portability of the gun, making sure that you can trust to taking it into the field without weighing you down too much.
Naturally, there are some other important factors that you will also want to consider before deciding on which rifle will do the job best. You need to consider what sort of armor your targets might be equipped with and have the right caliber to take care of business. Furthermore, you might need to consider how far you can fire the rifle with that accuracy or how well you can handle the recoil and take a follow-up shot if necessary. When it comes time for that critical mission, you will find that a Ruger Precision Rifle is more than ready to have your back.
Distance Where it Counts
With accuracy as the primary concern, it makes sense that the first thing you would want to look at is the barrel. The Ruger Precision Rifle uses a cold hammer-forged, 4140 chrome-moly steel barrel and offers it with 5R rifling. This approach has proven to lessen bullet jacket distortion, which means better accuracy over longer distances. Naturally, this barrel is also threaded to allow for standard accessories to get you that extra range and reduced recoil. Every rifle comes equipped with a Samson Evolution Keymod Handguard, which means you can easily use any AR accessories. It also includes a 20 MOA picatinny rail on the top. The rail includes a single picatinny section on the bottom which allows for easy a bipod attachment. The upper receiver is one-piece CNC machined from 4140 chrome-moly steel to minimize distortion, while the lower uses 7075-T6 aluminum with a type III hard coat anodized finish. Packed with other performance features and ready to give you the consistent accuracy you need, you will definitely want to consider one of these rifles for your collection, especially when you look at the price.
Since it is intended for distance shooting, the Ruger Precision Rifle is offered in 3 long-range calibers that can keep you on target. The .308 Win model uses a 20” barrel with 5 grooves and a 1:10 right hand twist. Overall, it measures out to be 7.3” tall, 3.3” wide, and 38.25”- 41.75” long, depending on the stock adjustments.
