Sturm, Ruger & Co., Inc. has added two magnum calibers to its popular Ruger American rifle series, the 7mm Remington Magnum and .300 Winchester Magnum.
The Ruger American Rifle Magnum has all of the popular features of the Ruger American rifle, but features a stainless steel receiver mated to a stainless steel, cold hammer-forged, 24″ barrel with 5/8″-24 threading fitted with a factory-installed thread protector.
Like all Ruger American rifles, the Ruger American rifle magnum includes the Ruger Marksman Adjustable trigger, which offers a crisp release with a pull weight that is user-adjustable between three and five pounds. Ruger’s Power Bedding system uses stainless steel bedding blocks insert-molded into the stock to positively locate the receiver and free-float the barrel.
The receiver is drilled and tapped to accept the factory-installed one-piece scope base. It features a three-round, single column, detachable box magazine and a glass-filled nylon stock for added weight to assist in absorbing the added recoil of the magnum loads.
Ruger is also excited to partner with another industry powerhouse, Vortex Optics, to offer the all-new Ruger American Rifle Vortex scope package. This package mates a Ruger American rifle with a factory-installed Vortex Crossfire II 3-9×40 riflescope. The scope features a Dead-Hold BDC reticle and the rifle package is offered in four calibers: .243 Winchester, .270 Winchester, .30-06 Springfield and .308 Winchester.
