Ruger's Target Gray finish gave the rifle a muted, professional look. Our 12X Leupold was just right for these .25-cal rifles. The pistol grip worked well with the fine trigger, but could have been a bit deeper.
The extra-wide forend made it easy to find a field rest for the rifle. We liked and appreciated Ruger's no-extra-cost scope rings.
From left, Ruger, Winchester Coyote, and Weatherby. Note the Winchester's semi-controlled feed bolt head, with the bottom of the recess cut away. This actually worked better in some ways than the Ruger. Weatherby used push-feed and plunger ejection.
