Ruger launches Ruger Precision Rifle models chambered in magnum calibers
Ruger expands its Ruger Precision Rifle series adding new models chambered in .338 Lapua and .300 Winchester Magnum.
The magnum caliber models boast a heavy contour barrel in addition to the Ruger Precision Rifle Magnum Muzzle Brake featuring a tunable compensator. The compensator reduces recoil as well as muzzle jump, according to Ruger.
Ruger’s barrels are free-floated and cold hammer-forged from 4140 chrome-moly steel with 5R rifling. The .338 Lapua offers a 1:9:375-inch twist rate while the .300 Win Mag delivers a 1:9-inch twist. Both models ship with two, 5-round AI-Style magazines.
The newer models are also equipped with a hard-coat anodized 18-inch free-float handguard with Magpul M-LOK accessory attachment slots. The Ruger Precision Rifles sport an AR-style left-folding stock with an adjustable comb height as well as adjustable length of pull. The rifle are topped off with a 30 MOA Picatinny rail and Ruger Marksman Adjustable trigger with user adjustable pull weight between 2.25 and 5-pounds.
“The value of the Ruger Precision Rifle is unmatched. With top-tier accuracy, adjustable ergonomics and the rugged reliability for which Ruger is renowned, these new chambering options broaden the Ruger Precision Rifle’s utility across a wide range of readily available ammunition,” Ruger said in a news release.
The magnum caliber Ruger Precision Rifle models are available now with a MSRP of $2,099.
