I never pay to much attention to Ruger stuff. Except the semi auto .22 pistol and rifles.
This however caught my eye, may have to watch and see.

Looks like the Predator model except it has a shorter tube and tan stock instead of the OD green.

Nice and light. Almost looks like the savage hog hunter.
Just noticed that it has a 16" barrel,gotta be loud.

threaded barrel, put a linear comp on it. they work pretty well, and it would still be under 20in.

Love the 1-8 twist.

16" is a bit too short for my tastes, but still a cool little rifle nonetheless. For a truck gun, I could see it......

May have one coming available to me next week. Has anyone found any actual results yet with this rifle. If I get mine I'll post mine.

Danny, it is ultimately the same rifle as the Predator only with a 16" instead of the 22" barrel, and the Predator is getting good reviews from those who own them. I've never shot the 300, but I own 3 rifles with 16" barrels in .223 and they aren't that loud. Putting a linear compensator on it would result in a bit of sound reduction.

I need to check out their offerings more often, this looks like a great handy rifle. It'd be nice if they chambered it in 6.5 Grendel.

I might have to consider one of these in 223.. hows the trigger on these?

SOme like the triggers ... some don't. I'd say they're "better than average" for a factory gun.

Slick rifle, but I gotta ask - what feature makes it a "Ranch" rifle?
