Thanks, I found that discussion. I was just kind of curious because Savage and Remington seem to reign supreme with Browning, Winchester, Sako etc taking up the rear and no Ruger to be found at all.2-3 weeks ago there was a discussion about that very subject,do a search and see what you come up with.
I actually own a custom Long range rifle I built on a Ruger. 338 Edge, 30" stainless barrel, 2.5 -16x50 Bushnell 6500 Elite with Mil-dots. Has over 1,240 rnds. through it in 1 year and still shoots 1/4" groups @ hundred. Just checked it yesterday. In fact I just got home from my daily shooting trip a few minutes ago. I was shooting in high wind @ 914 yds. With a Ruger.
So some people do it. Others may like Rem. or Win. or customs, or may have never owned a Ruger so know nothing about them. I have built on most actions from 03 springfields, 98 mausers, Remingtons, Stiller, Stolle, Rugers, ETC... This Ruger shoots just as good as my Darrell Holland built rifles and my Kevin Wyatt rifles, that cost 3 times as much.
If it's a Ruger you like, then Use it.gun)
I was told by a bench rest shooter that the Ruger actions flex easier, therefore less likely to be as accurate. Remember though, we are talking about hundredths of an inch probably? For most applications, you probably couldn't shoot the difference...RichIt seems no one on this forum talks about using Ruger actions for long range builds or accurizing Ruger rifles? Is there any reason for this?
