All list for $359. The specific model numbers are as follows:
- Full Size No. 8312 17 HMR

Mike Fifer, Ruger CEO, said, “These new threaded models are just one more way we’re raising the bar on rimfire bolt-action rifles.”
Additional features include a Williams fiber-optic front sight and 10/22-style adjustable “V” slot folding-leaf rear sight. A 3/8-inch rimfire scope base is machined into the receiver, which is also drilled and tapped for Weaver #12 bases (not included).
