Default The new Ruger Precision Rimfire

I posted a review with target images in the center fire section. I guess I should have posted here.. below is what I posted in error in the CF section:

Got a chance to run out and shoot a bunch of different ammo today.

Itís only fair to start with I have seen these things pre-order for $399. The scope I put on mine was only $280. This is a pretty budget offering.

My first impression after setting up the RPR was that the cheap rear stock section of the chassis is so light that it is just weird to me.

The trigger? I just donít know what to make of it.

The magazines it came with would drop out, but the replacement Clear Ruger 10/22 magazines that I ordered would stick so much that I needed a tool to get them out.

Iíve noticed a lot of guys have bought some very cheap 4-14 FFP Athalon BTR scopes. Iím not sure about them. With mine, I could not get comfortable behind it for a long period. I might have just been really tired. I do not often shoot in busy ranges and that might have had something to do with my perception.

Hands-down it like Ely ammo. However, I was shooting off a bipod only and really didnít feel comfortable behind the gun.

Below are the targets from my 25 yard ammo test and my confirmation at 50 yards of my top two choices. The gun is probably capable of shooting better just not me today.



Strangely, the 25 yard ammo test group looks like the 50 yard test groups -

I shot this right out of the box and didnít clean the barrel

Itís plenty accurate enough with the Eley for me to fiddle around with positional shooting- for the price it seems to be a really good deal.

Edited to add Fix of balance + measurements of the ELey ammo at 50y. Note that I only shot 2 groups with the ELey Club; ELey match was not as good. Wind was certainly a factor as was I.

I am taking one of my ADM QRs and adding 8 oz or so the the butt stock as a bag rider.


The other ammo groups were all larger. Seemed like a ok group was starting except one would drop out etc. Some ammo I didnít even attempt at 50 because 25 looked so bad.



Not usually a fan of such stuff but this makes the gun at least balanced.

I heard several people saying the the RPR and the RPR-Rimfire use the "same trigger" I guy just sent me a video on the Hide and confirmed this is NOT the case !

So no Timney for me

But hopefully the images will help others from doing the same.

Here is the RPR on the top and RPR rimfire triggers.
