Ruger Announces an Exciting New Cartridge and Rifles
August 15, 2006
Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE:RGR) President Steve Sanetti, Hornady President Steve Hornady, and their respective design staffs have again collaborated in the creation of one of the most practical, useful, and hard-hitting new cartridges - the NEW .375 Ruger cartridge, chambered in two new Ruger bolt-action rifles.
It is anticipated that these new Ruger rifles, and the new Hornady ammunition for them, will be available in quantity during the first quarter of 2007.
The Ruger "Alaskan" model in the NEW .375 Ruger cartridge is a bold departure in weather-resistant brush guns for large and dangerous game. The stylish Ruger "African" version, also chambered for this new Hornady-developed cartridge, will set new standards for African big game rifles.
So many rumors have been spreading about this exciting new cartridge and the Ruger rifles for which it was designed that Sturm, Ruger felt it necessary to confirm them. A new era of strikingly efficient rifles for dangerous game will be coming soon.
Precise specifications will be released just as soon as details of production ammunition and rifles are finalized. We anticipate this will occur early in 2007. Please watch for future announcements from Hornady and Ruger.
