Default Remington 700 ADL vs Ruger American

I have the option to buy a remington 700 ADL from Walmart or a Ruger American which rifle wins in this competition? 30-06

Always been a remington guy but the American looks fantastic

Thank you

Welcome to the Forum, the welcoming committee will be along shortly.
In the meantime, you can post a quick hello in the Introductions section.

What stock and finish are you looking at?

The american is a good shooter and hard to beat for the money. Get the 700 if you plan on adding aftermarket accessories, truing the action, etc.

Buy which one you like or both.
Personally You can't run fast enough to give a plastic stock or a matte finish or holes and rasps.
One of the joys, of firearms ownership is beautiful piece of wood and polished blue or stainless firearms.

I won a Ruger American last year in a drawing. I would choose the Remington 700 ADL over the budget oriented Ruger American.

Of the Americans I've seen, handled, and shot, I was extremely impressed to say the least! Of those choices I'd grab a Browning A-bolt 3!

A Remington 700 action in 30-06 is as good as it gets

My old Remy started out as a cheap walnut stock promotional deal. 2 stocks and 1 trigger later, it's never shot better. 1.5 MOA with soft point hunting ammo which is fine for hunting out to 250-300 yards

Point is, as was mentioned, you just don't have too many options with that Ruger American, it is what it is (which is not a bad rifle at all)

Just wanted to say thank yall for the replies. I guess I'm going for the more rugged hunting rifle than a bench rest shooter! But it would be nice to have some good accuracy out to 600 yrds. Possible with the ADL or American?

yes - but be prepared to spend some money on a scope!

I would love to point you to an upper end Remington 700...
The BDL, has a floorplate that opens to empty the magazine....
The DM's have detachable magazines....
The lowly, (but still a Remington700) has an internal magazine.

Unloading a Hunting Rifle is a common occurrence, make it easy on yourself.

Go for Beautiful Wood, Satin Oiled, or Glossy Lacquer/varnish is the way to go. Make sure it is Blued, no front site, but sports a beautiful 3-9 (or better).

Go for a .300 Win Mag and carry 150's 180's and maybe some custom 200's.

This is a manly setup that will serve you well in the Rugged Hunter category.

All joking aside, you will not be disappointed.
