Review 1 for Ruger American 308 Rifle

A Pure Shooter

If you've been thinking about getting a Ruger American, then you might want to head out to the store!
I can't say enough about how well this gun shoots. The trigger has a little creep in it, but still crisp and easy to squeeze. The weight and balance of the rifle makes it easy and quick to shoulder and point. The bolt slides easily even for a south paw like me. 
It took me a while to get zeroed in due to my lack of calculating the needed adjustments. Once I did, shooting it was even sweeter than before. It's a tack driver! I mounted a Nikon Monarch UCC 3x9x40 scope and a Bear Claw cheek pad for a solid cheek weld.

Great Rifle for the Money-American Made Also

I had heard a couple of negative comments about this particular rifle. I also was contemplating the Savage Axis model. So I wrote to Ruger about these negative comments I had heard, and when I received their reply, I was convinced to try the Ruger American. I am glad I did. I went to the range and shot Winchester .308 150 grain Super X and zeroed my 3-9 X 40mm Scope in 9 shots. I also shot a grouping of less than two inches at 100 yards. Not quite as good as the previous review, but then I am 70, wear Bi-Focals, and he was a younger guy. I like the way the bolt clears my scope, feels solid when injecting a shell, and I received a free Cheek Pad from Ruger when I registered my rifle. The cheek pad definitely adds to the gun, but not a necessity. I also have a Pacemaker embedded in my right shoulder and the recoil presents no problem for that, especially with the recoil pad that comes on the rifle. If you are looking for a good, well made rifle and are trying to stay in budget, I do recommend this rifle.

this is a real nice rifle. had beed researching for a while and narrowed it down to the savage axis and ruger american. went with ruger for two reasons, 1 the box mag is easier to seat, 2 the bolt has the double cam three lugs so it does not come close to hitting the scope and operates much smoother. the axis bolt handle came too close or hit the scope making you have to palm the bolt to work it where as the ruger has plenty of clearence one can grab the bolt with room to spare. i installed the busnell 4-16 scope and was hitting 4 shots inside a quarter at 100 yards with federal 150g. good soft recoil pad and it absorbs recoil nicely, actually fun to shoot with out getting beat up from recoil.
