Ruger Target stock photos

I'm building a hunting rifle using a very nice Ruger laminated Factory Target stock. I'm going to use a Whistlepig fluted aluminum 20" barrel . Kidd bolt, charging handle, and Kidd single stage trigger in stock Ruger receiver. Any tips on setting this up ? Barrel to receiver has been mated using the stock v block. Feel free to offer advice. So this is how it turned out. I have a Leupold scope 3 X 9 coming for it so I will replace the Vortex. I checked the barrel and can slide a dollar under the barrel up to the screw in the stock. So I haven't been able to shoot it yet and I want to wait for the new scope.

Finally got some good weather today and a chance to shoot my Ruger . I bought a Leupold 3X9 ERF scope and mounted it . Took a few rounds to get it dialed in . Shot the best group with some old Eley Target ammo I had . It like that best, followed by CCI SV and Norma Tac II. Was shooting from a sketchy rest at 30 yds. Wished that I had a better more solid rest but still I was very pleased with the performance of the Whistlepig barrel.

Is a great looking gun And Im sure its gonna perform great. But...

If you are going for a light hunting gun, a heavy laminated stock seems out of place.

Lots of people do this, like Ruger, who puts their aluminum shrouded barrel in a bigh heavy laminated stock, and call it a Target Lite. I got one thinking it was a good idea.

And people do the opposite too, my Brown Precision Custom Team Challenger, came with a heavy 24 inch Shilen Bull barrel in a Brown Precision Kevlar Stock. Super light!

After I while i just swapped the stocks, now both rifles are more at home. A heavy Barrel in a Heavy Bench Stock and a light barrel in a Light Stock. And honestly they perform better in their appropriate stocks.

I think, id put that rig in the lightest stock i could find. But you may want the weight, to aid in stability.

All good points. I want to get it out this fall and carry it around the woods some. If it seems to heavy then , I can make a change. Right now it seems fairly light to me. I used to have one with the Ruger hammer forged target barrel. Now that was to heavy to lug around the woods. It was a great shooter though. Thanks for your input sir.
