The barrel length is 22" on the standard model. The compact or youth model has an 18" barrel. The American is a great value.

Can't speak to the 243 Win version. Using a brand new Ruger American Rifle fired from a stable bench rest, we were able to shoot a 3 round 0.74" group at 100 yard using Remington's 308 managed recoil ammo (125 grain,Core-lokt). My buddy worked up a custom load for this rifle that produced a 3-round 0.56" group using Nosler 165 grain accubonds.

There is a reason these models have won several awards such as the American Rifleman "Rifle of the Year." I believe Field and Stream as well as Guns and Ammo also recognized these guns.

My only negative review is Ruger could have designed a better magazine system. The fit seems loose. Since they use magazines designs for several calibers (i.e. 243 & 308), hand loaders may have to shorten the overall length for the bullets to fit in the magazines.

If you are happy with a 243 win caliber, you will like these guns.
