    I can definitely attest to the accuracy of the ruger american, I know they got hyped up quite a bit but they are definitely accurate for a sub $500 deer slayer. I got the 7mm-08 compact stainless with a Zeiss diavari-compact scope on it and it is a beast....

    I have three 700's. Two with Walkers and one with a new X-Mark Pro. Decided to put Timneys on all of them.

    Yeah the ruger precision rifle seems to be a great option for the money. Ruger is not doing that well as a company financially recently apparently and paired with the slight defect in some of the models in the precision model- I am on the lookout for some sweet prices to nab one.

    I have heard you want to basically spend at least as much on the rifle as with the glass to go along with it.

    I've never heard it that way. Most guys I know have much more into glass.

    Yeah the general rule of thumb is "at least" as much $ on glass as on the rifle. My glass looks like a silk hat on a pig. It doesnt get much better than zeiss T* lenses and on the Ruger American (such a stupid name for a model) it just looks a lil silly, not a bad $500 rifle though, it's like a hammer, just a tool for a job...

    One of my favorite Gun Digest stories revolved around a guy using a Zeiss Diatal on a Marlin 336 in .35 Remington. The absurdity of it amused him (and me),
