I bought one in 6.5 Creedmoor July 7. It is ok, but I just finished packing it up to send back to Ruger. The throat aka "free bore" area is too tight. Cartridges are very hard to insert for bolt closure. some won't even fit. I bought a Savage rifle about 9 months ago, chambered in .243 Winchester. Love the rifle and its accuracy. Sorry, but quality seems a little better than the Ruger.
