USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR) proudly announces that the popular Ruger Precision Rifle is now chambered in .338 Lapua Magnum and .300 Winchester Magnum.

These new magnum caliber models pair exceptional long-range accuracy potential with tremendous down-range energy, broadening the appeal of an already very popular rifle.

These rifles feature a heavy-contour barrel (0.875″ at the muzzle) as well as a Ruger Precision® Rifle Magnum Muzzle Brake with a tunable compensator to effectively reduce recoil and muzzle jump. They also feature a hard-coat anodized, 18″ free-float handguard configured with Magpul M-LOK accessory attachment slots on all four sides for improved scope clearance and easy mounting of M-LOK-compatible rails and accessories. Integral QD sling attachment points eliminate the need for additional adaptors and a flat bottom 1.50″ dovetail is compatible with RRS S.O.A.R. and similar QD systems.

Like all Ruger Precision Rifles, these new models feature a highly accurate, free-floated barrel that is cold hammer-forged from 4140 chrome-moly steel with 5R rifling for minimum bullet upset. Minimum bore and groove dimensions (air-gauged for process control) and a centralized chamber deliver outstanding accuracy, longevity, and ease of cleaning.

The .338 Lapua Magnum model features a 1:9.375″ twist rate while the .300 Winchester Magnum model features a 1:9″ twist, both of which stabilize long-for-caliber projectiles. These rifles ship with two, 5-round AI-Style magazines.

The Ruger Precision Rifle is also equipped with an AR-style left-folding stock with adjustable comb height and length of pull, and ergonomic pistol grip. The magnum caliber models feature a 30 MOA Picatinny rail and the Ruger Marksman Adjustable™ trigger, which provides a user-adjustable pull weight range between 2.25 and 5 pounds.

Ruger FirearmsThe value of the Ruger Precision Rifle is unmatched. With top-tier accuracy, adjustable ergonomics and the rugged reliability for which Ruger is renowned, these new chambering options broaden the Ruger Precision Rifle's utility across a wide range of readily available ammunition.

    I own several RPRs in 6 mm and 6.5 creedmoor used on oour 1000 yard range. They are way to heavy to carry in the field hunting and are meant for target shooting and possible fixed position varmit shooting. 300 win mag and 338 lapua would be significantly heavier. Not practical much for hunting

    Really love my Winchester mod 70-270 w/ Redfield 3×9. The ballistics for .270 fall in a sweet range between .243 & .300, and are better than .223 at 400 yards. GIMME a MAGNUM

    The guns have multiple round clips. They are combat style rifles. There are plenty of hunting rifles out there with limited round capacity. If you want a deer rifle go buy a deer rifle. Ruger does make a mini 30 and you can get all sorts of wood stocks for that rifle. It isn’t a long range rifle but it’s a lot more accurate than an AK. Plenty of knock down power. You probably won’t go deer hunting with it but it would be nice for hogs.

    No such thing as a clip unless you’re talking about an M1 Garand which this is not. A detachable MAGAZINE, does not make any rigle a combat style rifle. Keep your idiot opinions to California.

    If you want an accurate rifle buy the Precision rifle from Savage!! They have several calibers in lengths from 20 to 24” and the price is totally awesome for what you receive I own 3 of them and I have accuracy of less than 1/2”at 100 Yards!! 5 rounds!!! I have one that will crown 5 into one hole at 100 yards!! They come with a 20moa picatinny rail platform for your choice of scope mount combos!! I chose the Steiner 8x16x56 and Bushnell’s tactical rings the 30mm tube! These ARE top tier rifles and to make them real accurate… Read more »

    We have a troll, first it’s a magazine not clip. Second its a combat style rifle. Style is for women’s wear not a long range rifle.Who are you to tell us to hunt with limited capacity mags. Hillary. Next you bring up mini 30 which loads plenty of high capacity mags. What does wood stocks have to do with hunting any way or even ak accuracy. 5 round mags that sound dangerous I won’t go in the woods with those military style weapons around. Troll on or read the 2a

    Why not go deer hunting with a 7.62×49 it has similar ballistics to a 30-30. When I grew up in northwestern Pennsylvania a lot of people hunted and harvested deer with a 30-30. In fact I took deer with my Ruger Blackhawk 41 magnum single action revolver.

    Multiple round clips? My Savage 3006 holds multiple round in a magazine so what. Clips belong in women’s hair. Combat style rifles? Their both bolt action. Style is in women’s dress’s. You might want to move to California with your thinking. Oh by the way mini 14 have magazine that hold lots of rounds

    Well said and I hunt with a wooden stock Savage 30/06 also with 168 Sierra game king Bullets with my own mix on powder primer and it shoots 3/4 inch groups and have no problem taking whitetail with it!! Never had to shoot twice!! Savage is a good all around weapon even in there package deal weapons!!

    For goodness sakes shut up already about clips and magazines we as shooters all know what was meant clip has become the word to discribe a magazine since I was a kid many moons ago!I know the difference and so does anyone else with an IQ of at least 50 so quit making a stink over it!!!

    I could have missed it, but I swear I did not see a barrel length in there! I saw handguard length, I saw twist rates, I saw the information about the adjustable muzzle brake, but Nary a word I believe about barrel length!

    If this thing was three hundred bucks cheaper it would be in the rain!

    MSRP, since the writer cannot for whatever reason include it, is $2099.00 for either.

    Aside from omitting MSRP, notice there’s no indication of accuracy potential, just a meaningless statement that it has “. . . top tier accuracy . . . ” whatever the heck that means these days. Just a puff piece.

    A little wood could be like eye candy to some people without effecting accuracy. Also a determent for the anti-assualt rifle individuals

    Why wood? Comes in 243, 308, and 6.5 Creedmoor, how many “deer” calibers you want?

    Im with you why wood its the worst thing for accuracy especially when deer hunting! Most deer hunters use synthetic stocks!

    The precision is geared toward competition and not so much to be in a deer stand
