The Ruger Ranch is a compact rifle with an ergonomic synthetic stock. The recoil pad is forgiving and helps cut down on felt recoil. The muzzle brake will also help cut down on felt recoil. Ruger advertises that the trigger is adjustable between 3 and 5 pounds. The bolt is a one piece design that has three locking lugs. This rugged bolt allows for most scopes to be mounted without interfering the operation of the action. It also has a scope base that was installed at the factory. Being chambered in 450 Bushmaster, this is the perfect package to hunt whitetail above and below the rifle line in Michigan.
