It's a really nice looking gun but I'll stick with my model 700

These are the most popular calibres too -- 243, 308, 270, and 30-06 in order of increasing power.
Wait, what? 1903???

I actually went to my local gun store today. The Ruger American is complete crap I can almost put it in the 770 category but it doesn't quite deserve that. It's bad sorry ruger. FYI I still have the same opinion on the mark ii.

American Rifleman had a write-up on it. I handled the 30.06 the other day. I for one did not like the trigger guard molded to the stock. Some of the fit and finish as well.

Sorry Ruger; but, I will save additional cash for another Remington 700.

You old people really dont like to try anything new. Wood stocks are terrible. + unless you pay 1000 or more the 700 is terrible.

Seems like this is a challenge to the TC Venture... Same look, price, and rifling....

Wood stocks are terrible? Nothing gives a hunting rifle more character than a nice wood stock. I own a Remington 700 bdl in 30-06 which I purchased for 725 dollars. With a Burris 3x9x50 scope I can easily hit a wild pig at 300 yards. I have heard a lot of trash talk about the Remington 700 but have never personally experienced any problems with one.

Idk. I dont hunt. I trust my life to synthetic stocks. Wood at war swells and is terrible.
