    I'm looking for a all rounder rifle for my wife & two sons to use for hunting plains game & stumble upon this little beauty...
    Wonder if anyone owns one of these and if you could advise me if this would be the right choice for my family to use seeing that is a nice compact weapon in .308 caliber.
    Also could you advice me in the scope choices as well.... Much appreciated!

    I have a left handed one. It shoots great, does not have any recoil to speak of, and functions perfectly. I had an older Lyman 4x scope that I put on it.
    From a supported sitting position, at 200 yards I can easily hit a 12" steel gong, 10 out of 10 shots in about thirty seconds. Mine came with one 10 round mag, but you can get extra 10 or 5 round mags from Ruger.

    Thank you for the feedback Ikeda!!! After watching some video's on the net yesterday I also came to the conclusion that this rifle is very manageable in the recoil department & would be a great gun to get for my family!
    Here is a quick review video on the rifle....



    Thanks again...!!!
