Ruger Precision Rimfire review with ammo test results



Log in to see fewer ads
Just finished putting together a new RPR. This is my first Ruger. I have been nothing but Savage in the past for rimfire rifles and had great success. After much debate I chose the RPR over a Savage MKII FVSR. I will leave out most of the factors of the decision making process. One of the main reasons was the adjustability of the chassis as I am now teaching my oldest boys to shoot. I have about 500 total rounds through this rig and am VERY happy I chose this rifle.

Rifle specs:
Ruger Precision Rimfire 22LR
Stock 30MOA scope base
Vortex medium height rings
Bushnell Nitro 5-20X44 Deploy MOA reticle
Caldwell bipod

I am very happy with the setup. I have about 70 moa travel in my elevation turret and 25 moa on the reticle. Next testing will be the optic. Tracking, reticle accuracy, etc. I got the scope on sale for $199 with no tax and free shipping. Very happy as of now, further testing required before I am confident enough to stretch it out to ELR distances.

Ammo tested today, 5 shot groups, 50 yards.
CCI standard velocity
Federal GM match
Federal Black 38gr 1260fps
CCI Stinger
CCI 45gr suppressor
CCI polymer coated target 1235fps
CCI standard velocity 40gr HP 1050fps
Aguila HV copper plated 40gr 1255fps
Aguila SV lead 1130fps

Attachment limit met. Will post follow up reply with target images.

CCI polymer coated target, CCI SV 40gr HP
Far right flyer on top right target was me. Felt this one.
I had higher hopes for the CCI SV HP. Had hoped it performed identically to CCI SV. Not a bad group. But not the same.

Aguila HV copper plated, Aguila SV lead
By far the biggest surprise of my testing to date. I will be purchasing some more of this.

Those Stingers did way better than I would have expected.

Same. I was shocked at those. The Aguila really surprised me as well. Was glad to see a couple acceptable groups from some budget ammo options.

Certainly a few surprises in there with regard to ammo preference! But with what it prefers it can shoot!

Mine shoots CCI SV about like yours does and it's good enough for me for plinking. It pretty much shoots everything well enough for hunting which is what it's used for, along with plinking.

Mine came with a warning not to shoot the stingers in it.
It says the case is to long and will get stuck in the chamber.

Very nice report. I have had better luck with the CCI Clean subsonic. The Singers and Aguila HV surprised me. I will have to try some. The Fed Bulk is plinking ammo. I use a lot of it. Always some fliers.

I found mine prefers CCI Green Tag (of course it would like expensive fodder) but it will put 10 rounds into one ragged hole from 50 yards if I do my part.
