    I guess I need to call Ruger. Picked mine up Wednesday. With only 250, I am sure every single one needs to go back, but I could be wrong.

    Picked mine up, it came in yesterday. Beautiful gun! Feels great too. I can't wait to get it out to the range!

    Mine was called back today. Took it to my dealer. It will be sent back tomorrow along with the other two the dealer bought. All three came out of the same 1st batch. Ruger only advised that they had to re-check some of the parts.

    I was advised the entire 1st batch had to be returned. I believe that was 50 rifles.

    I bought a second one for investment reasons and I liked the walnut, should be in on thursday. Hopefully it doesn't have to go back. My first one was picked up by UPS today.

    Mine is going back tomorrow. I bought mine from Mark's guy and the service has been top notch through the whole process. I love the gun and cant wait to get it to the range.

    Well, I my second one came in. The walnut is outstanding, a lot of flame in it. Ruger already called me.

    I put the 275 Rigby in the pic for comparison.

    Thanks Gents. I bought the second one for the wood. I'm hoping one of them will turn into a RS Express in 338 win mag one day :A Banana:

    I’ve bought all 3 so far. Any guesses as to which cartridge will be next year’s run? A 300 H&H would fill the gap nicely.

    At least a few of us have been hoping for that for the past two years!

    +1 on the 300 H&H and that would be my guess. I wouldn't be surprised if they dropped an 8x57 or 7x64 either. I emailed them a couple of times suggesting the 9.3. If we all blow up their email with 300 H&H suggestions, they may do it.
