Ruger Precision Rifle Now in Magnum Calibers

Ruger Precision Rifle Now in Magnum Calibers

Ruger has announced that its Ruger Precision Rifle is now chambered in .338 Lapua Magnum and .300 Winchester Magnum, pairing exceptional long-range accuracy potential with tremendous down-range energy.

The rifles feature a heavy-contour barrel (0.875" at the muzzle) as well as a Ruger Precision Rifle Magnum muzzle brake with tunable compensator to reduce recoil and muzzle jump. They also feature a hard-coat anodized, 18" free-float handguard configured with Magpul M-LOK accessory attachment slots on all four sides. Integral QD sling attachment points eliminate the need for additional adaptors and a flat bottom 1.50" dovetail is compatible with RRS S.O.A.R. and similar QD systems.

Like all Ruger Precision Rifles, the new models feature a free-floated barrel that is cold hammer-forged from 4140 chrome-moly steel with 5R rifling for minimum bullet upset. Minimum bore and groove dimensions (air-gauged for process control) and a centralized chamber are designed for accuracy, longevity and ease of cleaning.

The .338 Lapua Mag. model features a 1:9.375" twist rate while the .300 Win. Mag. model features a 1:9" twist, both of which stabilize long-for-caliber projectiles. The rifles ship with two, 5-round AI-style magazines.

The Ruger Precision Rifle is also equipped with an AR-Style left-folding stock with adjustable comb height and length of pull, and ergonomic pistol grip. The magnum caliber models feature a 30 MOA Picatinny rail and the Ruger Marksman Adjustable trigger, which provides a user-adjustable pull weight range between 2.25 lbs. and 5 lbs.
