I don't own one "yet". But it is built on a Mauser 98 action and made by a reputable gun maker. Sounds like a winning combo to me. Also it is one of the few guns out there being made in 338 Federal right now.
My two rugers were very accurate. I had a Mark II 300 Winmag and a Hawkeye 338 Winmag. They both shot every load I tryed under an inch. The 338 would frequently shoot 1/2" or under.
For me, they have been a great rifle and I think my favorite rifles.
My new CZ may become my new favorite once I get a scope on it and see what it's true accuracy is.
I don't think you can go wrong with Ruger
There are times when the deer are simply not moving and you're forced to make something happen. Maybe you're up against a full moon or hot weather. This is when a silent drive to force deer to move should be considered.
By silent drive, you're not yelling and making a commotion to scare the deer. When deer are panicked, they're liable to bust out of the cover on a dead run, and any shot you get will be tough to make.
A silent drive is different. It means playing the wind to carry the driver's...
