    Ruger Precision Rifle 6.5 CM with 1" Warne Rings

    Hello Guys

    I've decided to sell my Ruger Precision Rifle in 6.5 Creedmoor to finance a new scope. $1975 posted.

    This rifle has a Krieger cut rifled chome-moly barrel (it was a 243 when I got it in the first shipment - 6.5's were all spoken for) in a lot lighter profile than factory. I think this has improved the rifle for NZ conditions, all up with the old barrel it weighed 14 lbs (I did carry it up to 1800m Tahr shooting like that) which is a bit heavy for our NZ courses where you actually have to walk/run.

    Its shoots outstandingly well, I have shot possibles in F Class at 300 metres & 500 yards and come very close at 600 yards. I once tested it at 500 and the first three shots went into about an inch (should have stopped, the guys at the butts were incredulous), the next two took the group to 75mm, which is still outstanding at 500 yards.

    The rifle is used but not abused, it is threaded 1x14 and will come in its original box with all "factory" accouterments and manuals etc. plus the quicktach rings (scope not included). The barrel is not blued but I will have this done if the purchaser requests (at the price listed above). The bipod pictured is included, as will be about 100 cases,some factory rounds and reloads.

    Nice rifle, but your timing sucks just a little. My mate lusted after one for a couple years and finally got one a couple months back, but nit at that price. Not sure if I will telll him....(Depends if he annoys me or not) I dont think I want to make him cry.... All the best. Its a nice rig.
