The popular Ruger Precision Rifle is now available in 5.56 NATO/.223 Rem. A hybrid "Target" chamber safely accommodates 5.56 NATO cartridges, while providing excellent projectile control and accuracy for both .223 Rem and 5.56 NATO ammunition. The rifle ships with two 10-round AI-Style Precision Rifle magazines that accommodate 5.56 NATO and .223 Rem. factory ammunition loaded with the longer, higher ballistic coefficient projectiles popular among long-range shooters.

The free-floated barrel is cold hammer-forged from 4140 chrome-moly steel and features 5R rifling for minimum bullet upset. Minimum bore and groove dimensions (air-gauged for process control) and a centralized chamber are designed to deliver accuracy, longevity and ease of cleaning. Additionally, the 1:7 twist rate stabilizes long-for-caliber projectiles.


All Ruger Precision Rifles come equipped with a left-folding stock with adjustable comb height and length of pull, an ergonomic pistol grip and a Precision Rifle handguard, all of which may be customized with AR-style components. The Ruger Precision Rifle also features a Ruger Precision Rifle Hybrid Muzzle Brake, a 20 MOA scope base and the Ruger Marksman Adjustable trigger, which provides a user-adjustable pull weight range between 2.25- and 5-pounds.

MSRP: $1599. For more information on the Ruger Precision Rifle visit Ruger.com.
