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.
