    .222 Remington

    Just inherited a Ruger #1 chambered in .222 Remington. Absolutely beautiful weapon. Two questions: What’s the max effective range of the cartridge? What’s the max effective range of the gun?

    Fanboy fiction v facts: Ruger v Tikka

    Gentlemen, I have been beaten into submission! I surrender! I accept the Tikka (and of course SAKO) as superior to Ruger in every form, fashion, and function. Had Ruger been given a 1,000 years, they could not have done half so well. Let us all hail in unison our unquestioned loyalty to TIKKA!!!

    That may well be true. I’m certainly not disputing that off hand. But I would like to see more of the opposing argument and yes, I have no doubt a persuasive opposing argument could be made.

    I’m not the one getting miffed. And if I make a poor decision, that’s on me. I’m simply saying that a lot of the commentary thus far has come from Tikka fanboys. There’s simply no counterbalance. But I may be expecting too much.

    I assume I’m the “loud mouth” that hurt your feelings? Sorry if someone challenging your fanboy rifle upsets you. Well, actually I’m not sorry.

    I have heard the analogy that Ruger is the Ford of American gun manufacturers.

    Fanboy fiction v facts: Ruger v Tikka

    Better barrel? Really? Ruger is one of the VERY FEW gun companies that can afford the machine equipment necessary to make their own hammer-forged barrels, so I’m dubious about your claim of “better barrels” from Tikka. As a matter of fact, I would go so far as to say that Ruger is financially...

    Here’s my contention: the Tikka has no real out-of-the-box accuracy advantage over the RPR.

    Fanboy fiction v facts: Ruger v Tikka

    I see a lot of postings here that raise the question: “I bought a Tikka because I think it’s the best” or is it: “I think Tikka’s the best because I bought one”? I see many very positive reviews of the RPR from people with no apparent skin in the game. But here it’s all Tikka? RPR: 1,000 yard day

    I believe that’s it’s been well established that Bill Ruger was suffering from “softness of the brain” in his final years. But that’s now ancient history at Ruger, Inc.
