My wife shot this buck with her Ruger 77 Hawkeye..308..One shot kill....Deader than a door nail....

It is light..soft recoil pad(very little kick)..very accurate..model 70 type safety..Oh and the new Ruger trigger is nice....

Say what you will about the Ruger American but Ruger has done their homework. The bedding, barrel to receiver locking (ala Savage), free floating barrel and decent trigger all equal accuracy, probably better or equal to most new rifles.... including the Ruger 77.

And as long as we're showing targets here is one from my Ruger 77.

".i released it to find a spring like device which is used to push bullets up into the action"
Pretty typical

Ruger's may not have the smoothest action out there (they usually smooth out over time), but they work every time.

Niece has Browning A-bolt that won't set off a primer if it's below flush. Same rounds work just fine in my Frontier.

You probably shouldn't use pistol primers in your nieces gun then.

Did I mention the Rugers action is made of pot metal?
