The Ruger can be made to shoot ok but dont expect to win many competitions with it.
I've got three Rugers currently thet shoot good but had a 308VLE that was a dog that wouldnt hunt.....A new barrel was the last resort but traded it off to another Ruger fan that thought he could get it to shoot=He failed to get it shooting too.
#1The old tang 7mag has trouble going much under an inch @ 100 but is stays minute of goat/deer/elk to 600 consistantly and has become my go to carry rig.
#2The old sporter tang 243 got rebarreled with an 8 twist 22-250. Kinda fussy about what it likes but does well with 75 grain amaxes and H414 powder.
#3 The old tang was pickt up used in 308Baer with a few modification but has since ben rebarreled to 338 edge and a Sightron 20x scope with 150moa of travel.
#4 bought the 223 V for doggin with back when they first came out, had it rechambered with a shorter throat for 40 grain vmaxes when it was still new. With 6450 rounds threw it I sold it to my shooting partner that still hits more dogs than he misses.
The biggest downside to the Rugers has been the scope bases. It can be difficult to get a 34mm scope mounted and you have to use a scope with a lot of travel as the bases dont allow much adjustment.
