I'm still on the fence about the RPR so I'm gonna wait. For my uses, one of those chambered in .243 Win. would be about perfect. All I'd need is a good suppressor.

I applaud Ruger for finding a niche and filling it. While I'll likely never own one, if it does what you need it to, more power to you! I wish Remington would get aggressive with their products (and quality).

Where is the pig? Looks like a fine shooting, feature packed rifle to me. If, that is, those are the features are are looking for. Am I missing something that makes the RPR bad?

I like it alot from what I have seen/read. I would like to handle one in person.

Both reviews seemed great, which is rare, and I think the engineering and "out of the box" thinking is simply outstanding. Kudos to Ruger for another innovative design.

At that price point, I for one would expect better quality. - MUCH better quality.

Compare other firearms that you can get for the same amount of money, you'll quickly see what I'm talking about.

It's a Ruger American with some plastic BS added to it (lipstick) at three times the price. If that's your idea of a fine firearm, I'd say go for it.

Not me, though. - I like to get my money's worth.

Very impressive rifle. I saw one at Bass Pro today, though didn't ask to handle it. For what I need in a rifle, this is overkill (no pun intended). And it's heavier than what I want to lug around. Looks like an amazing shooter though.

Charles I think you're looking at this from a hunting rifle standpoint. That is not the mission of this rifle. It is built to compete in the practical precision long range type shooting, AND it will also hunt.

The bottom line on my competition 6.5 Creedmoor including barrel, smith, stock, DBM, one mag, and brake is ~$1900. So for the price of this rig it is a good deal if it can hang. And by all accounts, it is looking like it can.

10lb plus rifle don't think they are targeting hunters so much. Actually pretty cheap for what it is.

And 10 pounds aint heavy in the grand scheme of these type rifles. It's 5 pounds less than my 6.5 Creedmoor.

I've been around of a few and they have performed great especially for the money.

how bout you actually READ the review... where he specifically states that he hated the Ruger American it was rough and poorly finished... Where as this rifle he said was immaculate... What are you expecting more??? Look at other $1000 rifles and tell me what they do that this doesn't lol...

Fireman also has a point, this thing is made for LONG range comp rifle that can hunt.

I READ the review - and remember early reviews of the Ruger American, about how smooth it was with the fat bolt.

These overly-optimistic reviews go over great with the marketing types, magazine editors and the fanboys.

I'm not a marketing type, a magazine editor or a fanboy. - So I take these "best thing since sliced bread" reviews for what they are worth.

- But be my guest, slap your money down.
