Sturm, Ruger & Co. has announced that the Ruger American Rifle is now available in 7 Rem. Mag. and .300 Win. Mag. versions, as well as a Vortex Scope Package edition.

The Ruger American Rifle Magnum features a stainless steel receiver mated to a stainless steel, cold hammer-forged, 24" barrel with 5/8"-24 threading fitted with a factory-installed thread protector. The rifle features Ruger’s Marksman Adjustable trigger, with a pull weight that is user-adjustable between three and five pounds, and a Patented Power Bedding system that uses stainless steel bedding blocks insert-molded into the stock to positively locate the receiver and free-float the barrel. The receiver is drilled and tapped to accept the factory-installed one-piece scope base. It features a three-round, single column, detachable box magazine and a glass-filled nylon stock for added weight to assist in absorbing the added recoil of the magnum loads.

The Ruger American Rifle Vortex Scope Package edition mates a Ruger American Rifle with a factory-installed Vortex Crossfire II 3-9x40 riflescope. The scope features a Dead-Hold BDC reticle and the rifle is offered in four calibers: .243 Win., .270 Win., .30-06 Sprg. and .308 Win.
