(4 out of 5) Unbeatable at price point
by from Baird, TX on

I traded in my Ruger American in 6.5 for the new Ruger American Hunter in the same chambering. This is the most accurate gun I have ever fired under $1,200. It is a little rough in the fit on finish. The bolt feels gritty when cycled but for the price it is hands down my favorite bolt gun I own.
 It will shoot .5 moa groups consistently with Hornady 140 grain eld match ammo and sub moa with even with some of the cheaper stuff. Unfortunately it will not feed any bullet that doesn't come to a fine tip. Mine will not feed Federal non-typical whitetail or Winchester open tip. I'd still choose this gun over a Model 700 every day of the week.
