Launching 2023: Ruger American Go Wild Rifle Chambered for 7mm PRC

What could be more American than a Ruger Go Wild in America's hottest new caliber? (Maybe the epic beards in this video ...)

posted on January 23, 2023

The Ruger family of American bolt-action rifles has been a favorite among hunters for some time now, but it was missing a little (or not-so-little) something: 7mm PRC. As NRA Publications' Editorial Director Emeritus John Zent wrote when the new chambering was released last year, "Hornady felt there was a spot for an in-between-bore PRC, one that delivers 20 percent more energy than the 6.5mm Creedmoor with three-quarters the kick of the .300-cal. Beyond those basics, there’s no denying a legion of 7mm and .284-cal. fans proud of the trajectory-downrange energy-shootability matrix of their personal favorites. Those loyalists will soon find the newest PRC ticks off all the boxes and perhaps is the most efficient 7mm ever devised."

Clad in Go Wild camouflage, this new model of Ruger American features a threaded barrel with a factory-installed muzzle brake for easy shot-to-shot sight acquisition and reduced perceived recoil. Its Marksman Adjustable trigger offers a crisp release with a pull weight that is user adjustable between 3 and 5 pounds, allowing shooters to tune it to their preference. 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. An ergonomic, lightweight synthetic stock designed for quick, easy handling blends a classic look with modern forend contouring and grip serrations. Finally, a soft rubber buttpad further reduces felt recoil. MSRP: $789; Beards on display: priceless.
