Ruger American in the 243 Win.
My buddy just picked up his new Ruger American chambered in the 243 Win yesterday, it is the first short action up here so far, plenty of 270's and 30-06's but this is the first short action to arrive in this part of the country. He ordered it 4 months ago, it came in wed. he picked it up yesterday. It is a really nice looking gun, he paid $335, you cant go wrong with that. I have seen the 30-06's and 270's shoot, very impressive! Was going to go out to the range today but it is storming here today, what luck he has, waited 4 months and still cant shoot it. He bought it at Lolo's Sporting Goods in Lewiston Id., they told him it was the first one in the northwest, and they only got one, and he bought it. Also said if you want one in the 308 or the 243, they didnt know when they would get any in those cartidges, Right now if you order a 243 there you will be #6 on the list at that shop. I think I will go ahead and get on the list, wish they had them in a 7-08 and they came in stainless, maybe they will later down the line. For a low priced beater gun in the truck or on the 4 wheeler that is going to take some abuse and still shoot like a house on fire this is the gun. In my opinion Ruger has hit a home run!
