Years ago my father had a single 6. We added a Rough Rider. Years have passed and I now have both. In my hand and fully admitting I don't have a steady hand, they both group about the same. I shoot them both.
Would I compare them, no. When I was a kid I didn't have the money for a Ruger so I got the Heritage, at the time is was like 50 bucks. Today I have the money and would go for Ruger. There is no need to compare the 2, since they are not the same. Why compare an F150 truck to a car. The both server a different purpose. A lot of people are in no position to pay for a Ruger let alone Colt. I have yet to see a legitimate knock on the Heritage RR. It's as fun to shoot as anything else.
Three Heritages' for the price of 1 Ruger is right on the mark.
