Ruger has announced that two of its most popular rifles—the Ruger Precision Rifle and the full-featured Ruger American Rifle Predator—are now also chambered in 6 mm Creedmoor.

The Ruger Precision Rifle, which has quickly become a standard in the long-range shooting sports, is ideal for the 6 mm Creedmoor cartridge, with its accuracy-enhancing in-line recoil path, easy configurability with AR-style components, cold-hammer forged 5R-rifled barrel and adjustable trigger. Chambered in 6 mm Creedmoor with a 1:7.7” twist and 24” barrel, the Ruger Precision Rifle provides long-range shooters with cutting edge technology in both rifle and cartridge.

“The marriage of the flat-shooting Hornady 6 mm Creedmoor cartridge and Ruger Precision Rifle combines industry-leading design and world-class manufacturing to produce a high-performance package that gives competitors every advantage,” said Mark Gurney, Ruger Director of Product Management.

Hornady Communications Manager Neal Emery said the 6 mm Creedmoor found its start in precision rifle matches, offering the perfect blend of accuracy, flat trajectory and mild recoil where shooters can call their own hits. “It is built from the ground up for long, heavy-for-caliber bullets and it has already proven itself in the precision rifle match world," he said. "What the 6 mm Creedmoor does better than other 6 mm cartridges is win matches,” he said.





The 100-percent American-made Ruger American Rifle Predator also has set new standards of performance among full-featured, bolt-action rifles. Featuring a moss green synthetic stock, a heavier tapered, free-floated, threaded barrel and a factory-installed one-piece aluminum scope rail, the Predator has proved itself in long-range target shooting as well as its original intention as a longer-range hunting rifle. In this new chambering, with a 1:7.7” twist and 22” barrel, the Ruger American Rifle Predator becomes a cost-effective option for those interested in seeing how far they can stretch out this hunting rifle.

Mark Gurney said the Ruger American Rifle is another great option to put the new 6 mm Creedmoor to the test. "This cartridge offers shooters lower recoil than the popular 6.5 Creedmoor and longer barrel life than the .243 Win. It is a win-win for serious long-range competitors,” he said.
