Try the Magpul type "AC" They taper to a single file at the top and will not hold the bolt open after last shot. That makes single feeding a lot nicer and I have never had one fail to feed correctly like I have with the stagered presentation feed lips. They are available in 5,10 and 20 round models.
I have 3 of the 5 rounders. I was just curious if people have any experiences with with.

None of them will gall the bolt lugs if they are properly cleaned and lubricated after each use. Don't mean to be blunt, but those who don't clean and lube are just asking for future failures, or a firearm with a shortened life span..
The galling as shown earlier in the thread is consistent with one of my RPRs. It originated on the ramp face of the lug. I did not dissasemble the rifle to lap the receiver. The edge on the receiver lug probably cut the bolt lug to start the galling process. That would be the result of the manufacturing process. Either way, it is going back to Ruger so they can see it and fix it to their satisfaction.

The bolt was indeed cut from the receiver, I no longer have the images but a small camera was used to inspect the receiver locking lugs. Two were perfect but one had a larger gouge in it than the bolt.

I now clean the receiver lugs after every outing. I have never had a bolt action bolt have such an issue before.

I would lightly oil the bolt body and lugs as grease and dust become sandpaper.

First post here! Picked up my RPR in 308 back around Christmas. I have about 120 rounds through it so far. Got out to the range today with some reloads finally today. Seems the rifle likes the 168's better than the 175's at 200 yrds. I was getting 1" groups with the 168's but couldn't get the consistency out of the 175's today. So far the rifle is beyond expectations. Looks like i will be loading some 168's very soon.

You can store it in the Plano 42” folded but you have to remove the bolt and store it bolt side down so that it’s flat (unless you get a custom foam insert). I’d go with the double rifle case.
I bought the Plano 42” on Amazon for $67. The foam is easy to cut to fit the rifle (stock folded), bolt and a couple of mags. I like the shorter case because it’s much easier to carry back and forth to the range and fits in my car better. I had the longer wheeled case at first but sold it because it was so unwieldy and heavy.
 
Toughed the wind and cold to go sight in my gun. What an awesome gun. I am excited for nicer weather. Happy I got the viper pst gen 2. Zero left me with about 18 mils of elevation so should be plenty for me and the gun.

I am curious, I am a keymod noob but is there any tricks to installing the rail section for my bipod? It keeps working loose. It worked loose during mounting of my scope then it worked loose again today after about 8 rounds. My bipod is a Harris pivoting but it keeps working loose and the whole rail starts pivoting.

I have your bore guides for every rifle I own (many)
EXCEPT my recently purchased Ruger Precision chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor
I don’t see this rifle listed in your spreadsheet, and since you don’t list the dimensions of your guides, I have to ask.
Do you have something that will fit it?
Bolt diameter is .855” and is 9.5” long from the front of the locking lugs
A guide would need to be another 2” to clear the action.
Thank you

Sounds like you inserted it backwards. Properly installed it's solid as a rock.... Look at the pics, it is directional on install. Make sure the screws are out far enough but not too far or it won't align correctly. I initially had the same issue until I figured out the screw and direction issue.

Did you try the Nosler 175RDFS, my 308rpr loves them W/imr xbr8208.. besides that it was pretty picky with everything else

Mine really likes the 168 gr Nosler CC short range. I’ve been meaning to try the RDF’s for mid range. I didn’t care much for the 175 gr Nosler CC. The 175 SMK did much better. Sticking with my 190 SMK for 1000. It really likes those long range.
