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
Understanding wind currents and thermals in hilly, broken terrain can often be incredibly frustrating. I've found that collecting and storing milkweed seed pods during the late summer has made me a better hunter in the bluff country that I hunt. These little feather like seed dispersers will float on the lightest of air currents and will show you what the wind is not only doing right at you're location but more importantly down range. I like to use the off season to float them...
