Got her two days ago and finished setting her up yesterday afternoon. She is going to get her "maiden" out of the way this weekend.

Chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor, this Ruger Precision Rifle weighs in at a hefty 12.2 pounds with a full magazine of 5. I hope to be popping some steel this weekend, weather permitting.

Not spoken like the true engineer that you are. See Mike, it only has a bolt to fiddle with, all the other things are already tuned in.
I got some ammo loaded up but couldn't get to the Lands because the mag size(length) was to short. Apparently some aftermarket mags will let me lengthen the OAL. It's been fun getting her all set up. Tomorrow I scrub the action and bore to make certain I don't by accident run some crud down the bore. Then, weather permitting, I will get her sighted in and pop some steel.

Just had to give you a hard time Sparky. It's a good looking piece and you're gonna love it. Truth be known I'm jones'in so bad for a 6br I can't stand it. Soon as I get this new project off the ground I'm going to make it happen.
I see Vortex has a new 15 x 60 x 52 that is getting good reviews. US price in the $1500 range. Reviewer says it will give NF and March a run for their money. I am very interested as I have no complaints with the Vortex 6 x 24 I have now. Just need more horsepower at 600+. Old eyes.
