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
When placing a trail camera don't just look for a well used trail. What you want to do is look for a freshly used trail off by itself that goes from a north facing ridge, thick forest, brushy knob or some other similar bedding area to a food source. Don't forget water sources. Especially in the summer months the deer need water so look for a good trail going down too a creek surrounded by thick cover and place the camera 100 yards up from the water source.
Scent control is very important...
