Ruger’s Adding .338 Lapua, .300 Win Mag Versions of the Ruger Precision Rifle

Ruger's Adding .338 Lapua, .300 Win Mag Versions of the Ruger Precision Rifle

Those of you who have shot the Ruger Precision Rifle appreciate its affordable, out-of-the-box accuracy. Read Tyler’s comprehensive review of this great gun here. Now Ruger has added two long-action magnum chamberings giving you a choice of five calibers in the RPR.

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 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.

Ruger's Adding .338 Lapua, .300 Win Mag Versions of the Ruger Precision Rifle

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.

The 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 want!!!!! Both are great calibres but .300 win mag would be sweet!

    1. avatar mark s. says:

      With new bullet technologies the 30.06 will out preform the 300 Win , especially at distances .

      1. avatar Buck Rowan says:

        So new bullet technology only applies to 30.06 and not .300 win. mag? That makes no sense. Key word *Magnum – greater range.

  2. avatar bob says:

    After spending time tuning a Hawkeye for my 300WM, I’d love to step up to this.

    .50BMG.

    1. avatar Arc says:

      I like my 50BMG platforms super light, or super heavy. Ruger might make for a good lightweight 50.

    Adding all those caliber choices but still nothing for lefties?

      The sinister struggle

    2. avatar mark s says:

      Man I get so tired of the lefties complaining . It’s isn’t like you’re being ask to turn in a term paper , in cursive . How hard is it to work a bolt receiver or a toggle switch or push a button with your off hand , and as far as ejection , don’t even go there .
      I shoot left and right hand rifles either way and every way .
      I ain’t special .
      If you can drive a car , you can shoot a gun .

      1. avatar Douglas Haner says:

        Last I checked I never asked you to buy my guns, Mark.

        It’s not a matter of need, it’s a matter of want, for sure. The fact that you are whining about others whining for them (how does that work?) shows there is a market.

        BTW I’m not even left handed, I’m left eyed.

        1. avatar mark s. says:

          Adapt bro , your forefathers did . It ain’t that hard . Learn to shoot ambi .
          I still get sick of the whining and I’m not whining about it .

        2. avatar Doug Haner says:

          Seriously? How does one “adapt” one of their eyes to work better?

          Again while I certainly can operate a right handed bolt gun left handed I don’t WANT to.

          I’m not about to spend good money on something that isn’t what I WANT.

          You can feel free to compromise yourself. I choose not to. That’s the wonderful thing about America. I can choose to shoot whatever I want while waiting for an affordable OTS lefty bolt with the features I want. And you can shoot right handed guns left handed and backwards if you want.

        3. avatar mark s. says:

          I get it Doug , I really do get your point , and it’s certainly a valid one , America is the absolute greatest country on this planet and you certainly have every right and credible reason to want for and wait for what is best for you .
          I would not want to force anyone into compromising their desire to shoot for the stars and expect the greatest from the greatest , it is both admirable and longsighted to opt for the best in everyone and everything , so your position is solid with me .
          I would hope every manufacture , of everything under the sun , would consider the needs of those who use their products more keenly and design them to accommodate each user as effectively as possible , but unfortunately , economics often stand above accommodation and many people are left out .
          I believe with all my instinct and experience that if enough demand is created , your wish will be granted and you will one day clutch the gun you dream of within your deserving hands .
          God speed my brother , I stand with you in seeking only the very best .

    I think that the savage 110 is just as accurate and a lot less money….and will out shoot most people at the range.

    1. avatar el Possum Guapo Standartenfuher " they think we're making pizza's Oberst von Burn says:

      +1

    2. avatar Jon in CO says:

      The 110BA was my original pick for a 338LM rifle, but they disco’d it. The stealth is uglier than hell, and I’m not a fan.

      1. avatar haydene says:

        I totally agree I have the savage 110 ba stealth in 300 and personally I think its ugly as sin and as soon as I found out ruger released its magnum line I instantly sold it and bought a ruger just because of how well I like my rpr 6mm CM

  7. avatar jomo says:

    Can they add a stock that doesn’t suck too?

  8. avatar Sabre22 says:

    I do need a companion rifle for my 338 Lapua M700 Police Rifle. So 338 Lapua would be grreat

  9. 28 Nosler or 300 Norma magnum would have been better caliber choices IMO , I also would prefer not to have a straight through style stock because of the need to mount the scope so high off the barrel

  10. avatar Craig in IA says:

    I’ve been wanting to add either a .338 L or .50 BMG to my arsenal. Have looked at the Savage in .338, I think the RPR is going to be the deal breaker. Don’t know that my Dillon 550s will work with its length but will eventually find out. Already have enough .300 Win Mags.

    1. avatar Dionysus L White says:

      Same here I’ve been drooling to get a 338 Lapua. Man I can’t wait! Savage makes decent rifles but there’s are so damn ugly. The Stealth is the one I’m talking about..The RPR is beautifully made

  11. avatar PistolPete603 says:

    Serious Question: Why would anyone buy this for MSRP of $2,000 when you can have the Ruger Hawkeye Long Range Target in 300 Win Mag for an MSRP of $1279, and the Hawkeye weighs 4 pounds less??

      Marketing.

  12. avatar James Wilson says:

    4140 non-nitrided barrel in a 338 or 300? Not in a precision rifle. Pass.

  13. avatar Southern Cross says:

    And my stupid state laws won’t allow the RPR because it could be fired (not very accurately) with the butt stock folded.

    Could a fixed stock version be made or is there not enough of a market for such a variation?

    1. avatar Anonymous says:

      What state is that?

      1. avatar Southern Cross says:

        Her Majesty’s colony of New South Wales. Those who decide what is legal are not fudds. They are luddites who don’t want any technology in firearms later than 1900.

    2. avatar Kentucky Fried Possum says:

      Move or be quiet.

  14. avatar Charlie says:

    If Ruger had done that two years ago I might now own one instead of a TRG-42. Better late than never I guess, but that’ wasn’t good enough to earn my dollars.

    The magnum rifle market has been out there forever, and the Precision Rifle platform was made for it. So I’m surprised that they didn’t do this a lot earlier.
