In this video we check out the Ruger American chambered in .450 Bushmaster, a very hard hitting big bore caliber in a very affordable rifle. This rifle handles well and although very lightweight the recoil is 100% manageable due to the highly effective muzzle brake. We will be taking this rifle out again in the future with a suppressor and with some other varieties of ammo. Stay tuned, much more on the way.

  1. Looking at this cartridge…I have a 45-70 as well as a 460 Smith. What is the advantage of the 450 Bushmaster? Also…advantage over 458 SOCOM? Thanks!!!

  2. I have this gun with a Leupold 3 -9×40 that a couple stores are selling for 140 shipped on eBay. With Leupold rifleman low rings it sits about a 1/16 inch off the barrel. Can’t beat it for the money in my opinion.

  3. I have an American in .22 Mag, out of the box the bolt was tight like in the opening of the video. A quick cleaning and lube helped a little, but things smoothed out after shooting even just a little. Still a little tight, but I haven’t put that many rounds through it to consider it broken in. At $300 it has been incredible and only makes the rest of the American line more appealing.

    Can’t say the same thing for my brother’s budget Remington 7xx series. Thing is built like a first year Kia – anyone that has seen one of those will understand the reference!

  4. I have one of these rifles for about 6 weeks, shoots very good. I had the same problem the bolt just kept getting harder and harder to close. Until it did not and when I tried to open it the bullet pulled out and suck in the chamber.
    Took it home knocked out the bullet and tried to chamber some more loaded rounds. Still to tight, so I cleaned the chamber and bore with a 50 cal bore snake. Ran it thru back and forth about 10 times with cleaner. After that every
    round in the box chambered and the bolt almost fell closed. Same thing happened a few days later at the range but not as bad. I could close the bolt and I fired about 10 rounds( first time only 5 rounds sixth stuck). Followed the same procedure and everything chambered easy again. Told Ruger and a Ruger REP and they can’t explain it, except send it back. Well I have been told that this American Rifle is head spaced like the Savages with the nut? If that is the case some guns might come through a little tight. Also the Hornady ammo is not roll crimped at all. I picked up some Remington ammo and that is crimped visible hard you can see it easily. So shoot and get tight clean with bore snake and it gets normal. I really don’t know?
