Ruger designed its Precision Rifle as a price-friendly alternative to most long-range precision rifles on the market, which can typically run $3,000 or more. And the company delivered, in more ways than one. Kelly Young, Associate Editor of our sister publication, American Rifleman, had the opportunity to discuss the Precision Rifle in the latest episode of "NRA Gun of the Week." You can get the full rundown in the video embedded above.
