SHOT Show 2017: Ruger American .450 Bushmaster Ranch Rifle

posted on January 18, 2017

Ruger continues to grow its line of AR-15 caliber compatible American bolt-action Ranch rifles with the addition of a new model chambered for the straight cased .450 Bushmaster cartridge. With performance comparable to the venerable .45-70 Gov't., the .450 Bushmaster "thumper" round provides a decisive big bore solution for close range hunting. Fitted with a 3-round removable magazine, this version of the Predator arrives with an impressive muzzle brake installed on the threaded muzzle of the 16.1" barrel that effectively manages the stout recoil generated by this round. Other features include a Flat Dark Earth synthetic stock, one-piece optics rail and Ruger's Marksman Adjustable Trigger system. MSRP: $599
