And yes, I do notice that the first thing people seem to want to do with their RPR is make them "more AR like" by swapping out the butt stock and hand guard.

Took my new 6 creed out to the farm today and broke it in a bit.

Took about 20-30 rounds for it to settle down but eventually I was able to reliably put down 3 shot 1/2" groups at 100 yards with my best being 3/8".

Once zeroed I stretched it out and shot a 5 shot group right around 2-3/4" at 500 yards.

This gun is ridiculous. Can't wait to stretch it out further!

Just brought home my Ruger Precision Rifle in 6.5 Creedmore. It has a temporary scope on it till my Vortex Razor HD comes in and I can start shooting out to 1500 meters...well at least a 1000m for a while.

The compensator is clocked a little to the right and the lowest I can get the trigger is 2 1/4lbs

Overall impression is good ...trigger is OK if you are used to AR triggers this should feel just fine but having been used to real crisp, little take-up triggers on my other centerfire and rimfire bolt guns it feels a little weird, also its heavy and I'm sure it will get worse when I put the Vortex on it. I can't wait to take it out and test it to see if its money well spent or not.

The Gen II is an excellent buy. Lots of scope for the money spent. Scopes with similar functions and glass can cost up to $1,000 more.

The Gen I is a great buy if you can find them under $1500. Nothing wrong with them, they just got deeply discounted due to the Gen II coming out.

i won one of these in a match and use it on my LR308. It's good. Knobs are a bit stiff. Glass is alright and seems to hold up just fine. I would get this over say a Bushnell HDMR. Might be right in line with a Gen 1 razor.

I have a Sightron SIII (25007) 6-24X50 on 6.5 RPR... Decent scope (good enough for me)...

Went out last weekend - shot it for the first time (had it for at least a year, the move to AZ dampened a lot of shooting for a bit - still need to build a lightweight 308 AR that I've had parts for for over a year )

Hitting 12" steel gong at 600+ with no problem (haven't shot groups yet)... I know, I know 12" gong whoop-dee-do...

The problem with high powered decent scopes is it magnifies dust in the air and Mirage... It was actually easier using my M&P10 with Weaver Tactical 3-15X50 (love that gun & scope!) - the lower magnification and clear glass makes it "seem" clearer and is less distracting (for my amateur eyes).

Just my rookie observations and two cents... Experts are way better resource than me. But the Sightron 24 power scope reaches out plenty far and is good enough to see & hit targets at 1K+.. And it can be found at a decent price.

I use the Sightron SIII 10-50x60. It's a great super high power scope for around $1000. Not FFP though. At high mags like 50x, FFP would be useless as the stadia would obscure targets anyway. I only use the 50x at 1000 yards+. Most of the time at around 30x.

Also, for anyone willing to pay for instant gratification, my local big 5 in san jose STILL has the same 6.5 creed RPR on the the shelf for $1350. Just hangin' out.

Just an aluminum bar with a mount I made myself (3D printed), works great. About $15.

Got it, thank you sir. I made something very similar, but uses a scope ring. It's "ok". Aesthetically. functionally, it's 95% there, I only don't like that it is flat (like yours), since the bar runs parallel to the rail, so I need a ramped bag to get good adjustability. I think it would be better if it were angled, but not much I can do about that.

Other bummer IMO is the stock does not let you cast off the cheekpiece, only adjust height.

I've been looking at the spacegun tube stock, not sure if that model (which has an adjustable cheekpiece) is height only or if it can cast off too:



I imagine this would look rather fetching on an RPR. Not that much more expensive than a PRS stock (which still has a flat bottom section for bag riding, unlike hte angled bag rider of the spacegun stock)



Now that I thnk about it, I have to also wonder how a HERA stock would look on the ruger, though it still has the identical problem of flat bag rider and adds no adjustability at all.

Thanks for posting this - I was contemplating swapping the stock, but I might try this instead

Any suggestion for 34 mm rings? I currently use seekins AR high with my athlon Argos btr with 30mm tube but getting a razor gen 2. Will pair of 34mm seekins do the job?

I use a one piece American Defense mount, they make a nice low profile 34mm ring set that clamps at top and bottom, not at the sides. This keeps things slim.

Ouch these are expensive! The seekins can not handle this heavy guy? And everyone goes one step up?

I have the Razor Gen 2, and use the Spuhr one piece with internal level. The factory part # is SP-4302. Height is 38mm, length is 121mm. It has 10 MOA built in, and is rock solid. It seems to be a perfect fit for the RPR. You should also consider the Vortex scope level to help avoid canting. It is actually easier to use than the level in the base, I have found.
Watch Mile High Shooting for specials; the normal price is $410, but with creds you can get a nice discount.
