Anyone tried a ruger american. You can get one for right at $350 but haven't seen a lot of reviews on them.

The latest edition of American Rifleman(NRA) has it listed as top product for this year I believe, or something along that line.

Bought my son one last year in 30-06. Shoots really well. Had it zeroed in about 10 shots. He claimed 3 deer last season.

I would have a hard time overlooking it if I were looking for a new rifle right now. It has a lot of good engineering put into it to make a solid, accurate mass-produced rifle. They just need to start making it in .338 Win Mag

Ok-got a scope mounted the other day and sighted the Ruger American 22-250 first at 25 and then on to 104 yds. Took it out coyote hunting the next day with no takers. After mowing some this evening I got it out of the safe and shot a 3 round group at 104 yds. It is a good shooter-after the 3 shot group I adjusted the scope 1/4" right and 1/4" down, powdered a couple of 2" chert cobbles and called it good. The rifle is a very good value-the mag appears a bit flimsy but it functioned fine. Pic is a bit dark of rifle but the target shows up well.

I haven't heard a bad word about the rifle at all. I am interested because you can pick them up at Gunbroker for a nice price and they seem to be on sale a lot also at the Big Box stores.


I recently found out the barrel is 20 inches or less, 18 maybe? Someone correct me please. Short barreled rifles run a lot of buyers off but properly constructed they do just fine.
