Another chambering for the Ruger American Rifle GO Wild family, that is now also offered in 7mm Precision Rifle Cartridge (7mm PRC). The Ruger American Rifle was introduced more than ten years ago and over time it has been offered in short and long-action versions in a very wide variety of stock, finishes and calibers – the impressive full list is as follows: .243 Win, .270 Win, .308 Win, 7mm-08 Rem, 204 Ruger, 223 Rem, 22-250 Rem, 25-06 Rem, .30-06 Springfield, 6.5 Creedmoor, 6.5 Grendel, 6.5 PRC, 7mm PRC, 450 Bushmaster, 7.62x39, 5.56 NATO, 300 BLK, 350 Legend, .22LR, 17 HMR, 22 WMR. The just-added 7mm PRC is a magnum-length cartridge with 180 gr. bullets that can be fed from the rifle's 3-round single-stack magazine.
The GO Wild sub-family features an attractive camo finish and already includes several calibers. The new Ruger American Rifle GO Wild model in 7mm PRC weighs just over 7 lb/3,200 g and sports a nice Burnt Bronze Cerakote finish that is just as aesthetically pleasing as it is effective in protecting the metal parts. The 24”/61 cm barrel is cold hammer-forged, and Ruger's factory-installed radial port muzzle brake makes this high-performance rifle comfortable to shoot. Besides a crisp release, the Ruger Marksman Adjustable trigger comes with a pull weight that is user-adjustable between 3 and 5 pounds, while the one-piece, three-lug bolt with 70° throw provides ample scope clearance and utilizes a full diameter bolt body and dual cocking cams for smooth, easy cycling from the shoulder. Safety is a classic tang type.
The GO Wild Camo I-M Brush synthetic stock is ergonomic and lightweight, with modern forend contouring and grip serrations – a soft rubber buttpad ensures maximum recoil reduction.
Inside the stock, the Patented Power Bedding provides an integral bedding block system that positively locates the receiver and free-floats the barrel for what the manufacturer claims to be outstanding accuracy. The rifle has no sights but has a factory-installed, one-piece Picatinny scope base.
The Ruger American Rifle with GO Wild camo in 7mm PRC in the U.S. has a suggested retail price of $789 that includes one magazine and sling swivel studs.
