Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. has introduced three rifles chambered in Winchester's 350 Legend—two Ruger AmericanRanch rifles and one AR-556MPR. The cartridge is designed to combine impressive muzzle energy with low recoil, making it a good fit for either of these platforms. Despite their assumed popularity in the so-called “straight-wall states," rifles chambered in .350 Legend are not exclusively destined for there.
The Ruger American Ranch Rifle will offer this new chambering in both standard (13.75”) and compact (12.50”) lengths of pull to fit most shooters, pairing these options with an ergonomic stock and soft recoil pad to promote comfortable shooting. The 16.38” cold hammer-forged barrel features a 1:16” twist rate and is capped with ½”-28 muzzle threads and thread protector. A five-round metal AR-style magazine, one-piece Picatinny scope base, Ruger Marksman Adjustable trigger and ambidextrous tang safety complete the package.
The AR-556 MPR in 350 Legend features a nitrided 16.38” barrel capped with a ½”-28 radial port muzzle brake. Rearward, the rifle boasts a Ruger Elite 452 AR-Trigger, Magpul furniture and a 15” free-float handguard. Said handguard utilizes Madpul M-Lok slots for the easy attachment of a sling, bipod or other accessory.
The American Ranch Rifle in 350 Legend starts at $549, while the AR-556 MPR begins at $1099. For more information on either, please visit ruger.com.
