Three of the test ammunitions shot in the Ruger produced half-inch-or-smaller average groups at 100 yards. The best: PMC's 55-grain bullets.
The gun's trigger was adjustable, so we dropped the trigger pull weight to 2 pounds. This feature gave the Ruger a leg up on the other guns.
The Ruger's forend (right) has a 2.5-inch-wide beavertail bottom with a slight curve that worked very well in our rifle rest. The Winchester (left) had a similar design. The Remington's front profile was more rounded, which meant it didn’t sit flat on the rest.
