I still hear people say that the new Enhanced Ruger Precision Rifle is over priced. What do you think?
Would you expect tiny groups like this from a $1500 rifle shooting factory ammo?
Not me. I’ve never been that good of a shot. I am getting better with practice, but I am usually happy if I can get less than a 2″ group at 100 yards.
With results like these, I can’t wait to take the Enhanced Ruger Precision Rifle deer hunting.

These may be the best 3 shot group I have ever shot.

I’m sure you can excuse my enthusiasm in sharing the groups above. If you want to learn about the good, the bad and the ugly of the Enhanced Ruger Precision Rifle, here is a link to our Ruger Precision Rifle review.

Ammo used:

Federal’s American Eagle brand may not be known for Match Grade ammo… but with results like this, they may be soon. The best group was with American Eagle 140gr OTM (Open Tip Match) ammo.

Hornady has a great reputation for producing high quality consumer grade ammo. In this session I shot two of the premium Hornady 6.5 Creedmoor options, the Match ELD and Precision Hunter ELD-X. However, the best group using Hornady ammo was from their relatively new and more budget friendly Hornady American Whitetail 129gr Interlock ammo.

Gotta love it when the “budget” ammo delivers in a big way.
