Just thought I would share my views on my R/A 22 magnum rifle. Had it now for 6 years and have been very pleased with the accuracy and handiness of this rifle. Added a Vortex Crossfire 2 2x7-32 scope which makes it a fine woods varmint gun. Missed the shorter barrel of my Ruger Sporter 10/22 so jumped on this one when I saw Ruger offered it witha18 inch barrel. Accuracy has been great with CCI 40 grain H.P. ammo. Gun fits me great since I added the standard stock module for greater L.O.P. Adds another 1 1/4 inches I believe. First synthetic for me and stock does not feel chintzy at all. Sure glad Ruger gave the rimfire line a glossy bluing or black oxide finish. Like to hear others views or experiences with this model. Mine is the 8323. Paid around $275 back then and have noticed the price has gone up since my purchase for sure.
