SHOT Show 2019: New Rifles from Ruger

If you’ve been following Ultimate Reloader,  you know I’m a big fan of Ruger rifles, in fact my first rifle was a Ruger 10/22! Since then I’ve published a lot of stories covering the Ruger Precision Rifle, and other Ruger products.  While at the SHOT show this year I caught up with Graham Rockwell at the Ruger booth, and got the scoop on the latest rifle offerings from Ruger, check it out!

Magnum Ruger Precision Rifle

Before the magnum models were introduced in late 2018, the Ruger Precision Rifle was only available in short action chamberings (I have one in 6.5 Creedmoor and one in 243 Winchester, both are great). Now Ruger offers this popular rifle in both 300 Winchester Magnum *and* 338 Lapua Magnum. BOOM! Literally…

Ruger Hawkeye Long Range Target in 6.5 PRC

Blending the traditional M77 bolt action platform with modern features and finishes, the Hawkeye Long Range Target is a seriously nice rifle. And Ruger recently announced that this rifle will be available in the 6.5 PRC chambering, a great option for long range target shooters and hunters. In fact, I’m hoping to build a 6.5 PRC rifle this year- so I’m excited to see Ruger offer a factory 6.5 PRC rifle.

Ruger had a lot of other new rifles to show as well, like the Ruger American with Go Wild Camo (which I recently reviewed here on Ultimate Reloader). Ruger has also added to the Ruger Precision Rimfire lineup which now offers 17 HMR and 22 WMR chamberings!

I’m hoping to do some cool projects with Ruger American rifles (think builds) this year – so stay tuned!

Thanks,
Gavin

  1. I just bought last year the RPR 6.5 Creedmoor. I love my rifle but haven’t taken out to long range yet Over 100 yards. Probably won’t be until springtime. What difference do you think the mag brings to the table (.300 & .338)? I know one thing a lot more for ammunition. 6.5 Creedmoor is bad enough for ammunition price but you’ll go broke buying .338 ammo.
