Accuracy straight out of the box was also great
The rifle comes with a standard three-round magazine, but if you cull arp price of $1199. believe it will be very well received, especially by
goats or just like to have extra fire-power you can buy mags with larger
capacity, such as regular five and 10-round mags, or you could go for thewanting something that's not as plain as the stereotypical black stock/
four-round flush-fitting rotary mag.
The bedding system (patent-pending) is called Power Bedding and is a particularly impressed with its "out of the box" accuracy. To upgrade to one
new integral bedding block system which positively locates the receiver andhis spring, just match it up with a nice scope and you're away. Check out the

A one-piece, three-lug bolt, with 70 throw, provides ample scope
clearance, utilising a full diameter bolt body and dual cocking cams for
smooth, easy cycling from the shoulder.
For the larger calibres, the factory muzzle brake is a must-have to help
keep on target by reducing muzzle jump: however for the smaller calibres
such as the 6.5 Creedmore l test fired, l'd swap out the muzzle brake and
buy a suppressor in its place, as I don't think a muzzle brake is necessary in
smaller calibres and a suppressed rifle has many other advantages.

In the field: The testfire meant first going to the range to zero in the scope,
then taking the new Ruger for a bit of a walk, with the hope of topping up
the freezer with some much-needed winter venison. As luck would have it,
I managed to locate a wee group of fallow deer that had come out onto the
bush edge to feed. Selecting the best looking meat animal I ranged it
at 350 metres. I knew this hind was well within the killing range of the 6.5
