    Don't know how you guys feel about the PR game, but right now CDNN has a killer deal on Ruger Precision rifles:

    https://www.cdnnsports.com/rugerr-pr...l#.Wn9FMOjwaUk

    6MM Creedmoor for $899, .308 for $999, and 5.56 for $999 including sling and scope rings.

    If I wasn't in the process of re-barreling my current RPR I'd probably jump on the 5.56.

    I don't know what I would use a rifle like that for.
    Can't do anything with that that you can't do with a conventional bolt action rifle, plus it it horribly ugly.

    I've got a couple AR's purchased several years ago when the craze started, (just thought I should have them) but honestly they rarely leave the gun safe. Not a fan of way the gun industry is going these days, heavily skewed towards black and plastic tactical looking stuff.

    If you look a little deeper you will see they are trying to cater to competition now because no one is actively trying to take guns they aren’t pushing the ARs and plastic crap as hard as they did when everyone was buying. They are trying to market more purpose built firearms. Namely the Ruger precision rifle. It’s an entry level PRS rifle. It’s not designed for hunting, it can be used as a damn good hunting rig but that’s not it’s intended purpose. The Remington LR and 5R series make great hunting rigs but again wasn’t their intended purpose. It’s all marketing right now trying to find other ways to keep products moving. It’s an ever changing industry.

    You're right, it's not a "traditional" rifle, but for what it is, it's a bargain. Not many off the shelf factory rifles will hold .5 MOA, and I've seen 3 RPRs do it so far. Add to that the idea it's modular, with most parts able to be swapped out by the user and it really is a unique rifle at its price point.

    What type of competition would one use one of those rifles for?
