Expensive Bolt Action vs. Cheap AR-15

    In this episode of TFBTV, James pits the new Ruger Precision Rifle – a high-end off-the-rack bolt action rifle with a $1,600 MSRP – against a $700 budget-build AR15 that James built himself. Which rifle will prevail? This test is done at 100 yards with three different brands of .223/5.56mm ammunition: MKE ZQI 55gr; Winchester White Box 55gr; and Prvi Partizan 69 grain hollow point match boattail ammunition.

    James’ build uses an 18″ Del-Ton 1:8 twist barrel with an RRA free-floating handguard/half-rail and RRA two-stage trigger and a Magpul furniture set on the lower. The optic used is a Vortex Diamondback Tactical 4-12x.
