Default Ruger All American

Is anyone shooting one of these new rifles, well, new for this year. I purchased a Ruger All American for $301.56 in a 30-06. Should get it today/tomorrow and I'm putting a $200.00 Leupold Rifleman scope on it I got at Academy. I hope it to be as good a shooter as the $300.00 with scope Mossberg 30-06 I sold to get the Ruger with, . I should clarify, I bought the rifle online, scope at Academy. And, I've seen/handled the rifle, would like to read reply from someone actually shooting one or has shot one.

I have always been a huge fan of Ruger's rifles and revolvers. Not too big on their auto pistols but love the others.

Please be sure to post a range report on your 30-06. I have been thinking about picking an All American up on .308 Win.

I like idea it's made in U.S.A. I went to youtube and have found better info about them. Everyone that has "actually shot one", seems to like it very much. I'll try and give a unbiased update after I have tested mine, hopefully by this weekend.

I got my hands on one at SHOT there was a line to them. It is a very nice entry level rifle. well built better trigger than the Rem 770, and the Savage Axis.

I've tried to monitor posts on several gun sites for info/comments on the Ruger American by someone who has actually bought one and shot it. Been darn few such posts I've been able to find. Essentially, these few posters were happy with the rifle, thought it was accurate. Would have been nice if they'd explained what accurate was....1" 4 shot groups at 100 for example.

I have several types of sabots in different lengths. Today I installed a Remington composite stock, thumb-thru type with kick ezze pad, figured I might as well get comfortable when I'm shooting all those rounds to see what will work best. I've been able to buy boxes of premium coppers, brenneke', couple others less than $10.00 a box of 5 online. Sabots can be difficult to locate reasonable priced. I'll get back to this forum with my results. May take me a couple of weeks to have a knowledgeable reply but i'll give it my best shot.
