    Superb gun
    Great rifle. Harvested many deer with it. Put a good scope on pick up some Amerian Whitetail ammo and it will shoot MOA at 100yds and beyond. My son loves it.

    Best Bang for the $$$$
    I bought the 223 predator model late winter, Enjoyed shooting it. was surprised how accurate and very reliable. Enjoyed it so much I bought the 270 model. Still no disappointment here. If there is one thing I don't like ...is the plastic magazine. would like metal instead. more

    Excellent Rifle
    Buy this rifle! After reading up on this rifle and watching a ton of videos I purchased this rifle in .308 and added on a Nikon Prostaff 5 BDC. This rifle is definitely worth more than what you pay! After zeroing, runnin...g a box of ammo through it and a good cleaning, it held a 3 shot grouping less than 1 inch on the first accuracy test in a Caldwell Lead Sled. I've put well over 250 rounds through it now and it still holds 1 inch or less. This rifle is light weight but you do not feel the recoil. Excellent for beginners or experienced hunters. The Predator version of this rifle comes with a threaded barrel. I would definitely buy another! more

    exellent for your money
    I bought the compact .308 about 2 years ago and now am buying another for my oldest son. Absolutely love this rifle paired mine with the 3x9x50 prostaff and have knocked down around 8 whitetail deer 3 coyote and one pig ...with it all with one shot between 100-350 yards between us. I noticed some people talking about the MOA for the American rifle, now its real easy to get mixed up in all that my rifle shot about 1.5" with cheap rem core locket ammo but when I used my hand loads I was in sub MOA territory with around 3/4" groups with 168 gr hornaday A-max bullets. There are many factors in how a gun performs and if you are printing 1.5" groups don't get discouraged that's plenty good for your average shot on a white tail and often its the ammo you are using the .308 seems to favor 165 to 175 grain bullets so often going up in grains will yield better results. Also cheap hunting rounds are not very aerodynamic and as a result print wider than a more costly round such as a ballistic tip, also guns seem to have their own preference for ammo even though its the same machines making them, weird but there's always variance in any manufactured item. In any event though if you want a great rifle that doesn't eat your bank account alive this is the route to take and yes I have a Remington 770 not impressed with it at all I would have sacrificed the scope for a better built rifle. more

    Excellent Rifle
    I was looking for an "option" to my Ruger M77 7mm Rem Mag. Purchased the Ruger American in .270 Winchester 2 weeks ago after several months of reading reviews and forums. Topped it with a Leupold 3.5-10x40 Vari...-X iii that I had sitting in a box looking for a home. Dialed it in one evening earlier this week then took it back to the range this morning for a cold 3-shot group. Used Winchester Ballistic Silvertips (130gr). My Ruger 7mm Mag really likes the Silvertips so I thought I'd start with those to sight in. I can cover that 3 shot group with a penny! Love the trigger, and the recoil pad is excellent as well. Time will tell if it holds zero, but the accuracy is unquestionable. more

    This Gun Is The Best
    This gun is awesome! I bought a .308 caliber of this gun and I am so happy that I did. First day I went out to shoot it it was so great. So easy to shoot, so light, I love the safety feature on it. The only thing I did n...ot find great is that I had to buy a scope to put on it too, but if you are looking for a great first gun for a kid or an adult, buy this. more

    Best bang for the buck
    I've shot Ruger rifles for decades starting with the M-77 chambered in .270 Win. They're not particularly beautiful with shiny bluing or fine finished stock, but if beauty isn't important and you're looking for a hard wo...rking rifle that has satin bluing, hand oiled finished stock, or even better, the new maintenace free synthetic stock... with a tailored load can be a tack driver at any range... Ruger rifles are hands down, the best bang for your buck. more

    I bout the first one for my wife in .270 Win, she weighs 105lbs and she love shooting it, light felt recoil, even for her small frame. I was impressed so much that I bought one for me, I was debating this or a Howa 1500 ...in 30-06 I chose the Ruger. both rifles are topped with a Nikon prostaff 4-12x40 with BDC, very accurate!! no problems feeding or ejecting. even during a December Colorado elk hunt. more

    As good as any high price rifle
    I bought this in .270 and didn't have much money to spend at the time. I did a lot of online research before I decided take the plunge on the Ruger. It came down to the Ruger American and the Savage Axis. I ultimately ch...ose the Ruger because It seemed to fit better in my hand and the stock felt more rigid. I'm glad I chose the Ruger. After putting a Vortex Diamondback 3-9 x 40 I'm hitting 1" to 1.5" groups from a bench rest at 100 yds (depending on ammo). The trigger is absolutely awesome, breaks clean with no creep, almost catches you off guard when it breaks. My good friend can't match my groups with his Rem 700 ($900). I plan on bringing it to gunsmith to have the polymer stock stiffened for more accurate long range (600 yd) shooting. My one complaint is that you can't get it in a 24" barrel. more

    Outstanding!!
    Bought this rifle (my son's first) for 3 seasons;1) American made.2) Compact & light.3) RuggedI had no idea how accurate this rifle would be. At 100 yards, it consistently patterns in a 2.5" circle using a Vorte...x scope.It's so accurate, light and easy to carry, I found myself taking it with me on hog & deer hunts and leaving behind everything else I've owned for years.You cannot beat this rifle for the money. PERIOD! more

    AWESOME RIFLE!!!!!!!!
    My dad got this rifle for me for Christmas in 2015. I never zeroed the scope that I put on the rifle but, I took it hunting and killed my 3rd deer with it. I shot it directly in the heart the first shot. Its super accura...te out of the box. This rifle is the best rifle I have owned by far!!!!!! more

    Excellent choice in .243!
    Overall: I have been extremely pleased with the Ruger American as my first centerfire rifle, and I would highly recommend it as a great value. I did an excessive amount of research before buying, and I knew I did not wan...t to spend a lot of money on something that I might not end up enjoying, having never hunted big game before. At the same time, I wanted to get a quality product that would perform well, which brought me to the Ruger American. I paired it with a Vortex Crossfire 3x9x40, and I like this combination quite a bit. more

    Value quality design
    Purchased in 30-06 even though concerns over possible recoil in such a light rifle. Found recoil very mild due to built in recoil pad. Great trigger. Point and feel reminds me of my winchester 94. Very accurate. I have h...unted with a number of rifles and calibers over the years and can't remember enjoying shooting one more than this one. more

    Great gun
    Bought one this summer to use this fall. Shoots great, not to heavy. With the right ammo you can stack shots on one another. I got it in 30-06 put a Nikon pro-staff scope on it. Shot a 11 point 220lb Maine whitetail with... it. He only took one step. Good for hunting or even if you just enjoy shooting. The pad on the butt stock leaves vary little recoil for your shoulder, even with my 30-06 I could put 40 rounds through it with no problem. However, your still gonna feel it in the morning. Great gun at a great price never had a problem with it. more

    Ruger American .308
    By far one of the best rifles i own. This is the first .308 i have ever purchased and taking it out for the first time i dropped 2 deer dead in their tracks not a move from either one of them. Using 150grain ballistic ti...p Hornady bullet you cannot go wrong. more

    Better than it's price
    I own two now, if that sais anything. Bought a .270 as soon after all the initial reviews I could. Very impressed with it's fit, feel, and accuracy. While the machining looks a little unfinished on the exterior, all of t...he fitting pieces are nice and smooth. Bolt fit is nice and tight, no slop to bind when running it with side load as some other rifles. The stock has a great shape and very usable texture for many sizes of hands. The plastic does seem to be a little thin and flimsy, but resilient (my gun has been dropped, nothing broke). While you can flex the fore end, and make it touch the barrel, this has had no effect whatsoever on practical accuracy. Neither has temperature, from -10 degrees at the range or hunting deer, to nearly 100 popping prairie dogs both guns hit what you point them at. My .270 typically puts two shots touching with the third, fourth, fifth, etc within another inch. 5/8" was my best with a 115gr Vmax handload. The .223 will put five shots into one hole if I don't mess it up. This rifle is as accurate, durable, and put together as well as guns much more expensive. Now, if they spent the time to polish up the metal, and put a nice wood stock on it, they could double the price and sell them to all the guys who can't fathom using a 'plastic' gun. more

    Great Deal! Great Gun!
    I was a little worried about how light this gun is. I figured that it would kick like a mule. I purchased a .308 and have no regrets. The gun truly has very little kick. I can shoot it all day. On top of that, I have bee...n able to get between 1 1/2 to 1 inch groups depending on ammo. I also am not shooting out of a rest. I have found the best ammo so far to be Federal Fusion 150 grain. I have tried Hornady American Whitetail and Federal Power Shock as well. All in the 150 grain bullet. I have heard that 168 grain shoots best. We will see. I will try the Federal Fusion 165 grain next to see how it goes. Either way, it's a great gun. I'm glad that I made the purchase. more

    big bang for your bottom dollar
    i have the ruger american in 22-250. for the money i think its one of the best rifles you can buy (if youre on a budget of course) it has alot of features found on higher end rifles that cost twice to three times as much.... the trigger out of box is as good as you could expect i see no reason to change anything with both the trigger or bolt handle. I have mine topped with a Konuspro 4-16x50 and its a great combo. although the BDC in that scope isnt compatible(not that anyone needs a BDC with A 22-250) lol... it works really well. i can cover my 3 round group with a nickle at 100 yds.... 55grn hornady v-max seems to be what the rifle likes best. i have used the 50grn REM hollow points and still was sub MOA . if youre looking for a solid budget hunting or plinking rifle it wont let ya down. i might pick up another in 308. more

    decent gun for the money
    reasonably well made and competes (out competes) the other entry level guns such as Savage Axis and Remington 783 - However do not think you are buying a Ruger 77 - you will be disappointed - this applies to both the cen...terfire and rimfire versions. At about half the cost of the 77's you do get a lot of bang for your buck - they are good utility firearms but i doubt you will end up considering them heirlooms or "safe queens". more

    Superb Rifle in 30-06
    Took this rifle out last week for the first time with a brand new scope and it only took me 5 shots to zero it in at 100 yards! The scope was a inexpensive 4-9x40 off brand. I was nailing everything I was aiming at (soad...a bottles, clay pigeons, you name it). Didnt try for tight groups on paper, perhaps next time. I went through 60 rounds of 150grn. cheapo ammo and not one mishap. Could not be happier. Easy to field strip, crisp trigger, smooth saftey. You cant go wrong with this rifle. Light recoil, all around fun to shoot. Very happy! more

    Picked up one of these in 30-06 the other day. My first bolt action. Have not had any range time yet. The feel of the rifle is why I got it. Did a ton of research and read as many reviews. All around solid rifle. I'll up...date more later after I take it out. I know a scope makes a rifle, but I'm going to mount a cheap scope on it and see how it preforms. more

    Great first rifle!
    I'm very happy with my purchase. I bought the Ruger American in .270 WIN. I had an issue with the fourth round not always loading. I called Ruger and they quickly sent me a free magazine. I'm hitting 1 MOA from 100 and 2...00 yards with two types of ammo. I haven't tried longer shots yet. One of these types of ammo is very cheap and one is lead free and much more costly. A different, cheap type didn't hit within 1 MOA, but was close. I've only tried three types of ammo and I'm new to shooting, so I'm very pleased and can't wait to take it out to hunt. more

    Ruger Americans - Absolutely!!
    I bought the Ruger American Standard 243 at Christmas last year and like it so much I bought it in 223 this year. (I find the guys behind the counter at BAss Pro Shop in San Antonio very helpful and knowledgable. I make ...it a point to to go back and tell them how rifles I purchase from them perform, hoping it helps them be more confident in the weapons they are selling.)I have an M-77 in 30-06 (Made in the 200th year of American Liberty stamped on the barrel) and several other rifles by other manufacturers and other calibers. Hands down, these Ruger Americans are my favorites. Both shot sub-MOA groups at 100 yds, with less than premium factory ammo (Federal and Hornady, respectively). Off a bench at the range, I expect three holes to touch and very seldom does a peek into the spotting scope disappoint. (The two hole picture (223 at 100 yds) attached reflects my new approach - when two shoot this well, why fire a third?)With synthetic stocks, these rifles are not "pretty". Fellow shooters will not ogle over their looks, but once they hold them in their hands and shoot them, they will be envious. I promise - I have experienced it more than once. Took two friends hunting yesterday and one left his rifle in the case to hunt with my 243!These rifles are 100% American made which makes them more special to me. With Weaver matte rings and matte finished Leupold 3-9X scopes (100% American made package), I suggest they are a new spin on stealthy "black rifles".Thanks Ruger. more

    Exceptional Value!
    I first purchased an American in 7mm-08 for my daughter. After firing the rifle with a Leupold Rifleman and rest, we could cover a three-shot group with a quarter. I was so impressed by the accuracy and trigger pull, I q...uickly purchased another American in .22-250. After placing a Nikon Prostaff on this rifle, I was able to cover a three-shot group with a dime. Both rifles have been used considerably without any problems. This rifle is an exceptional value and I'm hoping Ruger expands the caliber choice in this series to even more calibers. more

    American Made!!!
    This is a great entry rifle for me and my son. We bought the 243 in sept 2013 and have put over 200 rounds downrange with no issues at all so far. Been to the range about 8-10 times. This rifle shoots very well groups at... 50-150 yards. If your looking for moa in the woods, it dosnt exist. Moa stands still. Deer dont. If you want a entry rifle that takes game, this is the one.If your trying out for the shooting team buy a m-77. We only use Hornady Whitetail ammo and we destroy pie plates in all weather conditions. The trigger is crisp. The free floating barrel is accurate, and the recoil is minimal I do suggest a set of Burris Signature rings to hold the scope tight.. more

    I purchased my ruger A.A. two weeks ago. I just had time to go out and put a few rounds out the barrel. And I am not a markmans, I got 1/2 group right out of the box. I matched it with a Cabela's pine ridge 4/12/44mm and... I will give that 5 stars. And I just love the magazine. I only gave 4 stars, was for the stock the left side of the forearm is laying on the barrel. Besides that the rifle is tops with me. My ruger is in the .223 So if you are looking for a nice low end rifle go for the ruger A.A. more

    Good Bang for your Buck
    Ok, let me start off by saying I'm picky. If a gun isn't shooting MOA or better I'm not happy. That being said I wasn't happy with this gun to start with. I was shooting 1.5" groups using Winchester Super X 150 grai...n in my 308. Most hunters would be happy with this. I on the other hand demand a little more from my guns. After epoxying the stock, dampening the buttstock, and free floating it better I am down to MOA using Hornady American Whitetail 150 grain loads. I will say out of the box this gun is slightly better than the Savage Axis and 1,000 times better than a Remington 770 (anything is better than a 770). But I would say if you are going to do some work to the gun like I do an Axis is a better investment. For $50 less you can trim the trigger spring lowering the pull to 3.5 lbs and sand out the forearm and acheive the same accuracy. more

    Excellent Light Wt Rifle for Everyone
    Purchased the Ruger American in .308, added the 4-12 x 40 Vortex scope. Excellent trigger and bolt action. Easy to load. Comfortable to hold with confidence. Compared to the Savage, Weatherby, Remington & Mossberg ri...fles you will be pleased with the Ruger American. If I didn't already have a Ruger M77 and a Win 70, I would be adding the couisins to the .308. Great buy right out of the box & ready for big game. Tried Remington, Hornady & Federal ammo. All performed well at 100yds. more

    Good shooter
    Purchased a 243 couple weeks ago for purpose of shooting coyotes a during whitetail season. Tried 2 factory loads, hornady super performance 58 gr and cheap nosler 100gr. Both shot great hornady 1/2" and nosler 5/8&...quot;. Trigger was easy to reset. Only the front arm of stock could be a little more sturdy and centered. But for a cheap entry level rifle I give Ruger and 10 of 10. With hand loads this rifle maybe a tack driver......? more

    I purchased this rifle in 243 win for ground hogs. It works and shoot good group love the light weight for carrying. My rifle mounted with 4x12x44 it like 100 grain fedural and corelocks in 80 grains. It now 700 remingto...n but it still a very nice hunter n I shoot it as well if not better then my old 700 BDL 30-06. It become my go to rifle and 243 win works for just about everything and it flat n bucks the winds that we get in Del. If i could change one thing I want a heavy barrel but great. more

    .308 American
    I just purchased this rifle, took it out today and shot a .75 inch group at 100 yards with factory ammo. All the reviews are accurate, very good shooter will be using in Idaho this fall. Another Ruger great.

    I just picked this rifle up today in 30-06, good rifle, mounted a leupold vx-II on it and was getting better grouping than i was hoping at 100 yards shooting 150 grain Hornady Whitetail Ammuntion, all round good rifle fo...r the price. more

    Affordable reliable firearm
    Purchased this rifle in .308 back in September 2013. Have target shot with it lots. Very accurate gun for the price. Slapped on a Nikon 3-9x40 BDC scope. Decent groups at 100 yards. I'm not a pro and I can hit a bottle o...f water at 100 yards so it should be great when I take it out hunting for deer next season. Recommend the gun. Looks great. Feels great. It likes federal blue box 150gr soft points. I'll attach a picture of a can shot at a hundred yards. Buy this gun. Smooth bolt. Keep it clean and it will be a lifer for you. more

    Great rifle for a great price
    Finally got to take the new 30-06 out to the range. First fit and finish is good for a low priced rifle, IMO much nicer than the Savage. This is no M77, but functionally it is a sweet shooting rifle. The action is smooth..., and on my rifle the trigger is excellent out of the box. I like the tang safety as it is easy to operate and out of the way. Recoil is less than I expected, just a good shove when you squeeze off a round and it doesn't pound you. There were no issues putting 40 rds down range as it was very comfortable to shoot. At 100 yds I was getting just under 1 inch groups with cheap Herter's ammo I picked up to zero the scope. I can not wait to try some 165 and 180 ammo to see how it shoots. If you are looking for a good inexpensive hunting rifle I would recommend you take a look at the Ruger American. I gave it 5 stars as it is an excellent rifle for the price. more

    30-06 Ruger American
    We purchased this for my son's first big-game hunting rifle. We didn't want to spend a lot of money for his first rifle but were afraid we'd be stuck with inferior quality after seeing some of the other options in this p...rice range. We found a good mix of value AND quality in the Ruger American. We threw on a Cabelas 3-10x40 scope, bore-sighted it and were hitting .75" groups at 100yds within half a box of ammo. Great gun, very durable feel and is something my son will likely be able to pass down to his kids one of these days. I only wish I hadn't spent the $ I did on my Browning A-Bolt. Not that I don't love my A-Bolt, but had I known this rifle was going to be as good as it is, I'd have saved the $ and went with the Ruger myself! more

    Great rifle, flimsy stock.
    Everything about this rifle screams excellent, except for the forearm portion of the stock. It is flimsy and extremely easy to move by hand to touch the barrel. If there was a bi-pod mounted on this gun the forearm would... touch the barrel for sure and there goes your free floating barrel. My rifle came with the left side of the forearm already touching the barrel but I fixed it up pretty easily. You can sand the forearm down to get the required clearance, but good luck getting warranty work after that. Everything else about this gun is incredible, that forearm though is junk to say the least. more

    I purchased the American rifle in 22-250. Got it on sale for a great price. The trigger is sweet and the rifle is super accurate. Using Wolf Gold ammo I was able to shoot a 1.5" group at 100 yards, while sitting in ...the snow and using a kitchen step ladder for a bench and a cheap Tasco scope. Unbelievable! I look forward to testing it out on some coyotes. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase another in a different caliber. Highly recommended. more

    What a bargain!
    I bought the .270 based on all the good things I have heard about this rifle. Man, it is an awesome gun. Now, I don't usually go for the cheaper or lower end of anything. My main deer rifle is a model 70 and I don't thin...k that can be beat. But, for the money, this is a quality gun. Lightweight and well built. The trigger is the best I've ever felt on a ruger and a high quality barrel. Shot 1 1/2" groups @ 100 yards this weekend with 130g core lokt psp. This is the best value I may have ever seen. Comes with quality weaver bases and a 4 round mag. I put a Nikon prostaff 3-9x40 on mine. I'm in it for $550 total. Can't beat it. more

    Very nice gun and very accurate
    I purchased the 7mm-08 version a few months ago and put a Nikon Prostaff 4-12x40 scope on it and it shoots wonderfully. First 3 shots were sub MOA and adjusted quickly. Although the last sentence is kudos for the scope m...ore than the gun, the weapon continued to fire extremely accurately even with a warm barrel. The trigger out of the box was smooth and I haven't needed to adjust it yet. Action is smooth and fires flawlessly with factory ammo and reloaded ammo. So far I have reloaded 139, 140, and 154 grain bullets and they all shot great in this gun. My only gripe is the gripping but I'm just used to the studded type gripping on my Savage .270 and it feels like my hand is going to slip but luckily it hasn't which is why I won't give this gun only 4 stars. This gun kicks like a .243 IMO and would be perfect for youngsters and women that need a great deer/elk gun. I like this Ruger so much that I plan to buy the .22-250 version for coyote hunting. I highly recommend this gun for someone needing a great, light, and reliable weapon. more

    American Made .308
    I had been on the prowl for a .308 for quite sometime. Went in to Cabela's a week before my birthday and to my surprise there was an American .308 on the shelf with a Burris scope already mounted. I hymned and hawed for ...a few minutes before ultimately deciding to take her home with me. Down range this gun is flawless, no loading issues at all. I have now fitted it with a bi-pod and am gearing up for my first hunt this spring. Overall I LOVE this rifle, Ruger has done an amazing job! more

    Great rifle for a Great price!
    I just bought this rifle today in .243 with a leupold vx-II 3-9X40 scope. and what I have found is that the magazine doesn't care for steel cased rounds. however I then used Federal 55 grain brass casing and it cycles pe...rfect every time. It fires very accurately, I shot roughly 3/4" MOA at 100 yards. the only complaint I have is after firing round the bolt is a little harder to lift and eject a round. Otherwise i am very happy with this rifle. more

    I bought the rifle last year in 7mm-08 with a Leupold 3-9x40 Rifleman and couldn't be happier with the feel. Being my first "plastic" stock rifle i was a little skeptical about the feel and recoil but was pleas...antly surprised at how well it shot. 1.25" groups at 100 yrds with 140 gr nosler hand loads after sitting all summer makes me confident in having this as my backup and giving it to my friend for her first elk hunt. more

    A very good buy, feels good in the hand, looks sexy, bolt action is smooth and solid, 1 inch groups at 300m. Recoil in .30-06 is less painful than most due to the rubber pad. Cabelas customer service is excellent.

    Great value - Great (but not perfect) Gun
    I recently purchased the Ruger American rifle (30.06) from Cabela's and (overall) have been quite pleased with the purchase. The rifle is attractive in a plain-jane kinda way and seems to be very well balanced. As others... have mentioned the rifle is remarkably accurate, I had no trouble getting 2 inch groups with American Eagle "range" ammo. I'm sure with a little time at the bench and some good ammo the groups will get smaller. During the course of sighting the rifle in I put 20 rounds down the barrel and (as one of two others have also mentioned) I -did- have two rounds that failed to feed from the magazine on the first try....This is definitely something I will keep my eye on more

I was using a Bushnell Banner 4-12x40mm, shooting Hornady 58gr V-Max... Moly ammo. I shot about 1 3/4" grouping at 200 yards off a bipod. Very happy with the accuracy of this 'budget' rifle. more

    I started my search for a new rifle I could take into inclimate weather after last deer season. Rain and brush took a toll on my model 94. After looking into a 700 and this one, I decided to finally check both out in the... store. For some reason the Ruger just felt right. I'm not knocking the 700 at all, it just didn't work for me. I am excited to take this out this coming deer season. more

    Excellent starter rifle
    Excellent starter rifle. Action is smooth, although bolt lift is stiffer than I would like (even with proper oiling). Very easy to break down. Adjustable trigger pull weight and true free floated barrel are appreciated, ...but wish stock had more heft (too much flex when I load my bipod) and grip. Rubber pad very appreciated in my caliber (.308). People complain about how you "need" a (free from Ruger with rifle registration) cheekpad, but I personally feel comfortable shooting without it. Magazine doesn't rattle at all when loaded, despite being almost all plastic, which is brilliant, but I wish it had higher capacity (or at least an aftermarket option, hopefully soon??). At just over 6 lbs, rifle is light, feels good in the hands, quality is exceptional for the price, perfect starter hunting rifle. 3/4" groups all day at 100 yards, haven't tried beyond that, haven't hunted with it yet, but looks very promising. Love this rifle. American made! more

    I PURCHASED A .270 AND A .308 RUGER AMERICAN RIFLE THIS SUMMER. THE ACCURACY ON THESE GUNS IS EQUAL TO MY WEATHERBY VANDGUARD AND MY CUSTOM RIFLES COSTING TEN TIMES MORE. I DON'T CARE FOR RECOIL, BUT THESE GUNS SHOOT WIT...HOUT NOTICIBLE DISCOMFORT EVEN FOR MY 11 YEAR OLD GRAND SON, TONY. PULLING THE MAGAZINE AND CLEARING THE ACTION IS FAST AND SAFER THAN MOST RIFLES I HAVE FIRED. I ASK THE SALES ASSICATE AT CABELLAS FOR THE THE RIFLE HE WOULD BUY IF PRICE WAS NO OBJECT; HE HANDED ME MY .308 RUGER. PAY MORE IF YOU WANT TO, BUT CABELLAS AND THE RUGER AMERICAN ARE THE BEST YOU CAN GET HANDS ON! I WILL BE BUYING THE .243 AND THE .30 - 06 THE NEXT TIME THEY ARE ON SALE.

    Tonnes of Value at this Price!!!!
    I have been in the market for a new gun for the past year or so. I finally went for this Ruger American after doing a bit of research. Well the reviews on-line were pretty accurate. Awsome gun for the price. Smooth actio...n on this gun, feels great to shoulder, trigger pull was perfect out of box (just under 3 pounds), very user friendly, especially like the rear safety position (never have to question the position of the safety on this gun....great for young hunters). Love the rotary clip design and ability to have one extra round in clip (tikka only has 3 shot clip) Have only put a couple boxes of shells through the gun so far, but strait shooter and consistant groups. Compared this gun to the T3 and Thompson Center Venture and it was a toss up between the T3, but for the money, I went with the Ruger and am sure glad I did. No quams with tikka as they have a proven quality gun. more

    Best Gun Ever
    The Ruger American Rifle is the best gun i have ever owned. I've had it for about a year now and it has never failed me. I shot a 9 point White-tail at 126 yards and dropped him 20 yards after. I also shot a 5 point 214 ...yards in the head and dropped him immediately. I have it chambered .308 and shoot Remington core-lokt 150 grain. I would recommend to only older shooters because a .308 is a lot of power and can shoot very far, but in all best gun to by for any big game hunting. more

    Best Bang for the Buck
    I purchased the Ruger American in .308 over more expensive brands such as Weatherby, Kimber, or Tikka, first and foremost because of accuracy. I can consistently shoot sub .600 groups at 100 yds. with Federal Trophy Copp...er. The only thing about this rifle you may not like is the polymer stock, trigger guard, and bolt shroud, but as someone who owns several polymer based pistols, know that polymer is equally as tough and sometimes more forgiving when dropped as metal or wood finishes. more

    I purchased a Ruger American in .243 at the Hamburg store. I had to wait a week for one to be shipped from another location. I screwed a Nikon Pro-Staff on it and brewed up a batch of Hornady 65 Gr. V-Max loads. It is as... accurate as my Remy 700 in .270 that will drive tacks all day. It is a plastic rifle with a plastic mag but it has a nice trigger and the three lug bolt works well. The stock is comfortable and the recoil pad is good. I would buy it again. Can't beat the price either. more

    Overall Good Value
    I think when you read major reviews they were sent "perfect" versions of this firearm. First thing i noticed was it seems pretty plastic or hollow. You will notice the first time you rack the bolt in the store.... I filled the forend holes with silicone and packed the stock with paracord leaving just enough room to fit in a survival kit snug. Now sounds and feels nice and solid. balances better and doesn't seem much heavier. Only put 20 rounds downrange recoil (.308) is similar to 12 ga. Haven't fired since added the extra stuff to the stock. Pivot pin for bolt release keeps working its way out of place. Trigger is nice and light, I don't have a guage but it feels crisp and you don't get any noticeable tension from the safety trigger... The "power bedding" stands out visually through the plastic. Guessing when set and molded, plastic shrinks and you can see where the blocks are located... Ruger cheekpad is easy to order and it came in 2 shipping days. Fits the stock nicely has enough room to store the bolt (at an angle barley) which is nice for traveling in vehicle. Overall the value is there and I like tweaking things a little so I would recommend this firearm for anyone. more

    ALL U NEED TO KNOW
    I bought the American 30-06. 1st hunting rifle I've ever owned. 1st 30-06 i've ever shot. I wanted a rifle for hunting elk. I put the Nikon Prostaff 3x9x40 Reticle on it. I used Remington 180 gr. core-loct at range to se...e how well it shot. After reading reviews and speaking with Cabela's staff, i decided this was the best option for an introductory rifle and American made so I bought it and I'm glad i did. 1st three shots out of the box at 100 yards 1.5" moa. Those were the first three shots i'd ever taken with a 30-06 in my life, so that tells you something. I adjusted the scope and then hit 1.5" moa on bullseye. First two shots hit the bullseye and the 3rd shot jumped. That could've easily been my fault. At 200 yards i missed bullseye by 4 inches twice, regathered myself and then hit the bullseye. I think for the price this rifle can't be beat. I'm happy w/ the purchase. I only gave it 4 stars because it should should shoot sub-moa for 5 star rating. Great rifle for the price!!! more

    great gun!
    just bought the ruger american .270 yesterday at cabela's and matched it with a nikon prostaff bdc scope. the employee "Dave" was a great help in finding me an economical gun that i can rely on. they bore sight...ed the gun there for me and threw in a set of rings with the purchase! took it out after cleaning it, i noticed some sticky stuff in the bore and on the bolt. easy to clean. the gun was shooting about 1" groups at a 100yards (apps) and I'm definitely not a marksmen but this gun might make me one! this is my second rifle but i use to own a winchester model 70 .264 and this gun i think shoots comparative to it. the plastic stock seems durable, just a little cheesy and the clip is plastic too, but thats how they are keeping it from being about a 700-800 dollar gun. i won't be afraid to shoot any bull from 100-300 yards as long as I'm running winchester 150g! love it and would recommend it to anyone of almost any age group(has some good felt recoil) i know ill keep mine forever more

    A true "American legend" in the making!
    This rifle is one of the best I've ever fired! I purchased the .270 model. The bolt is smooth, there is virtually no recoil to speak of, and it's amazingly accurate! The American shoots like a much more expensive gun. I ...would recommend this rifle to anyone in the market for an inexpensive, reliable and accurate rifle! more

    Outstanding Rifle, regardless of price
    Bought this rifle in .308Win, from the Buda TX store.Light, very well balanced, and could not believe the accuracy of it. All ammo shot through it (Herter's FMJ, Remington Core Lokt in 150g and 180g) grouped near MOA at ...100yds.Bolt is full sized, quiet in operation and has never bound up. Extremely smooth. Doesn't rattle at full extension out like so many other bolts.Recoil is light thanks to the very soft butt pad.Trigger pull is adjustable (3-5lbs) but I left mine at the preset value of 4lbs. Very crisp trigger, practically no creep and no slop.The magazine flush fits to bottom of rifle, holds 4 rounds, and easy to load and always fed the next round with no malfunctions. Yes you can chamber a round, then replace the round in the mag for 4+1 capacity.Stock is very comfortable to hold, does not look cheap like so many other synthetic stocks.Fit and finish are very nice, hard to believe I paid so little for what is virtually a premium shooting iron.I will be getting another in .243 soon.Highly, and I mean highly recommended. more

    Buds was proficient and efficient in processing and shipping of this weapon to my FFL. The rifle arrived timely and in perfect shape. This is a seriously impressive bargain from Ruger. It is a solid .30-06 bolt action r...ifle that holds four rounds in the mag, plus one in the chamber. Take note that this rifle does not have iron sights, so you will need to purchase a scope. However it does have integral rails. Buy two Weaver rings, mounting a scope is a non-issue. This is a rather light weapon, and the .30-06 kicks. I suggest purchasing a "Limb Saver" pad for the synthetic butt stock, which will do much to absorb the recoil of this rifle. If you are in the market for a hunting rifle, and do not want to break the bank, this is a piece you should consider. more

    I don't think you can beat the Ruger American 30-06 for the price. It's a good solid, smooth action firearm that Ruger is noted for. So far, I haven't had any problems with the ammo clip that other owners have had, but I... only ran a few rounds through it, so we'll see. As usual, Buds provided great service, which is well appreciated. more

    for under $400 you cant beat this rifle i love it it is so light to carry and easy to shoot it shoots like a dream, at 100 yards i can shoot a group the size of a 50c piece witch for a rifle with a price tag under $400 i...s really good so if your looking for a rugged reliable hunting rifle you cant go wrong with this one. just a little side note with this rifle i have even out shot a couple of Remington 700 now that might be the shooter of the rifles not the guns them self's but it felt good knowing that i out shot people who had rifles that were over $600 each and mine cost half that and i was able to out shoot them and as far as the scopes on the rifles mine was a scope from wal-mart witch was less then $100 and they had $300 plus dollar scopes on there's. more

    I have Ruger Hawkeyes and M77's and I would put the American right up there with them. The American isn't as pretty as the big brother but it is a great price point gun. Fires dead on accurate and is an absolute perfect ...truck gun for any deer hunter. more

    Buds shipped this promptly and in great shape. I noticed the magazine was loose in the well and called Ruger. They sent me a new magazine and it is tight as a drum! Amazingly fast and great customer service. Great rifle,... great company, you can't get better than that for the price. more

    The one word to sum up this gun would be "light". This is definetly a gun made with hunters in mind. Too many armchair gun enthusiast concern themselves with sub-moa, 1/2 inch groupings, other stuff that only combat shoo...ters depend on. This rifle will still give you tight groups and take down that nice buck. The weight will not become a burden in the field. Ruger's dependability will ensure this rifle last. For the 350 price tag, you can't go wrong. As for BUD's, they delivered great service once again. They have become my go to gun store. more

    Purchased after all the rave reveiws in G&A and ST magazines. Wow this gun- 3x9x40 SI Sightron $125 scope with Burris Signature rings $40 = 3 shot group with factory Super X ammo while sighting the gun in covered by a qu...arter in the bullseye "PRICELESS"! Repeated group with different ammo. Only time will tell but being an american made rifle by Ruger at this price I'm impressed. I want a gun to shoot straight no fluff and buff and this answers the bill. I like the polymer magazine ordered an extra from Ruger got 20{78597de270f02ac43c1f8d5dafe29069d5bd2073a14e3f5e04036ac50c15f6bf} off and they also will send you a free cheek stock comb pad when you register the rifle. more
