Ruger just announced the brand new Ruger 57 pistol. There were a few rumors but it is here. Totally impressed that Ruger did this... totally did not expect it. I just got the gun a few weeks ago and enjoyed every moment!
Looking forward to getting a few thousand rounds downrange.
I also covered yesterday's announcement of the Ruger LCP II in 22 LR...
Some of you were aware or may have caught my post discussing some long range guns.
Early last week I had the pleasure of being flown out to the middle of nowhere in Texas, to the FTW Ranch, to shoot some upcoming rifles in a joint event with Ruger, Leupold and Hornady.
Most of the guns I have shot are not yet released and cannot talk about them, but one of them, I can. It is the Ruger Hawkeye Long Range Target in 6.5 PRC. The gun was released at Shot Show, earlier this year and is now available in 300 Win Mag, 6.5 Creedmoor and 6.5 PRC.
The event was really a 3 day shooting class where we used the new firearms. They were brand new, and in a few cases prototypes. They were production guns, not messed with and were straight out of the boxes. We shot the guns at ranges from 250 to 2,300 yards with Hornady match ammo. The optics were Leupold Mark 5HD 5-25 scopes.
Working on the full video but here is a teaser of me shooting it at 1,200 and 1,400 yards. 1st shot hit on 1,200, took 2 on 1,400. Unfortunately did not hit at 1,600 as the round was no longer supersonic and the winds were hell.
I was just blown away personally, that a gun with a $1,279 MSRP and a $1,000 or so street price was good enough to maintain sub MOA at those distances.
