I literally pulled the trigger and got this

So for months I've been looking for a long range gun. I found this, its a ruger precision bolt action 2nd gen rifle. It shoots a 6.5 creedmoor round which will travel 1400 yards. Being that it's a bolt action rifle, there are not to many nj compliant laws against it. The only thing I can't have is a flash suppressor. After I got the gun I found the vortex scope and hand grip I wanted. This thing is just awesome.

Gotta tell the njsp to give you guys some training, flash suppressors are perfectly legal on a bolt action

Nice purchase though, which vortex?

Looks good, I’ve been slowly building my own SPR out of second hand parts, while the Ruger is an awesome rifle for the price, the cost of glass blows me away. There’s plenty of legal breaks you can put on the end of that thing and be good to go!

.308 is a short bolt, no? I want to do a Lapua .338 but the barrel I want needs to have the chamber reamed and the threads cut to screw on the bolt carrier

Yea, short action.

$1 per round is much easier to handle than $2.5

Strange, I got it from shooters and I spoke with them about a flash suppressor for it, they informed me that the gun would not be NJ compliant, though any muzzle break wouldn't be a problem

the glass is a Vortex Viper PST 5-25x50

I'm going to start making my own rounds, and saving my brass. the initial start is costly but it makes it up quickly if you shoot a lot. you figure 3-4 fires on most brass, primer, powder, and projectile, plus the price of a press.

I have a press already, and I think it is tall enough to load .338 Lapua and I have a ton of .556 brass already, plus all the 9mm, .40 and .45 pistol brass.

My work schedule is the complete opposite of my friends and I tend to avoid the range on weekends or else I'd get out more. I'm a member at Cherry Ridge in North Jersey, we have a 200-300yd range which I'm dying to use, I just need a better spotting scope. I have an M1A Match that I'd like to practice more at distance, and I'm building a scoped 18" AR rifle that will also be competitive at distance.

Weds is the best day for Ft. Dix, usually empty and I can lay without being rained on with brass.

Says who? This post was a few days prior. You cant legislate crazy away. A person committed to harming others will always find a way. We should never trade liberty for "security."

what happened in vegas was absolutely horrific. The reason why we have so many gun restrictions is because of people like Stephen Paddock. Its damn shame the many suffer because of the few that decide to go and use firearms on innocent people. its a shame because now "our right to bare arms" will be even more infringed upon
