Ruger Ranch Rifle
I bought a Ruger Ranch Rifle a number of years ago (ten +) and never did anything with it including test firing it. Don't ask me why. In the intevening years I read they and the Mini 14 were inaccurate. I did try it out last summer and it didn't perform very well. I decided to buy an Accu Strut barrel stiffener for it and gave it another try yesterday. Using American Eagle ammo at 50 yards with iron sights I managed a 5 shot group at 1 3/16". Conditions were bad since it was cold and windy and I was wearing gloves trying to keep my fingers from gettng numb. I don't like the sight setup either. I've got the scope rings for it so I'm going to get a scope since I see it has some potential. Carl
