I don't have the american rifle, but have a remington in 7mm-08. Best caliber for deer I have ever used.

Have one 30-06. She's a keeper. Ignore the outliers... operator error.

Re: Ruger American rifle ?

The one I purchased in 7mm-08 right at the end of rifle season shoots the Winchester power point 140s and the Fed fusion 120s well inside of an inch at 100 yards. The 120s right about 3/4" and the PPs at less than 1/2". Replacement mags are rediculous should you loose yours and need to replace it but I just love the rifle and WILL be buying another one in the same caliber. I'll cont to use my Encore, M77-MK II in 7 mag but the girlfriend and her daughter will be well equipped come deer season...

If you did, I believe I was looking your gun over on Saturday when I was up there picking up the one I won.

Pretty sure that's what my little gal is gonna be toting for her first deer hunt this fall.

Re: Ruger American rifle ?

I have the Ruger American in 17HMR and it shoots great. A friend has one in 308 that also shoots under one inch at 100yds. I may get another in some center fire round soon. Great gun for the money
