Ruger Americans - Absolutely!! I bought the Ruger American Standard 243 at Christmas last year and like it so much I bought it in 223 this year. (I find the guys behind the counter at BAss Pro Shop in San Antonio very helpful and knowledgable. I make it a point to to go back and tell them how rifles I purchase from them perform, hoping it helps them be more confident in the weapons they are selling.) I have an M-77 in 30-06 (Made in the 200th year of American Liberty stamped on the barrel) and several other rifles by other manufacturers and other calibers. Hands down, these Ruger Americans are my favorites. Both shot sub-MOA groups at 100 yds, with less than premium factory ammo (Federal and Hornady, respectively). Off a bench at the range, I expect three holes to touch and very seldom does a peek into the spotting scope disappoint. (The two hole picture (223 at 100 yds) attached reflects my new approach - when two shoot this well, why fire a third?) With synthetic stocks, these rifles are not "pretty". Fellow shooters will not ogle over their looks, but once they hold them in their hands and shoot them, they will be envious. I promise - I have experienced it more than once. Took two friends hunting yesterday and one left his rifle in the case to hunt with my 243! These rifles are 100% American made which makes them more special to me. With Weaver matte rings and matte finished Leupold 3-9X scopes (100% American made package), I suggest they are a new spin on stealthy "black rifles". Thanks Ruger. December 31, 2014
What a bargain! I bought the .270 based on all the good things I have heard about this rifle. Man, it is an awesome gun. Now, I don't usually go for the cheaper or lower end of anything. My main deer rifle is a model 70 and I don't think that can be beat. But, for the money, this is a quality gun. Lightweight and well built. The trigger is the best I've ever felt on a ruger and a high quality barrel. Shot 1 1/2" groups @ 100 yards this weekend with 130g core lokt psp. This is the best value I may have ever seen. Comes with quality weaver bases and a 4 round mag. I put a Nikon prostaff 3-9x40 on mine. I'm in it for $550 total. Can't beat it. November 18, 2013
American Made!!! This is a great entry rifle for me and my son. We bought the 243 in sept 2013 and have put over 200 rounds downrange with no issues at all so far. Been to the range about 8-10 times. This rifle shoots very well groups at 50-150 yards. If your looking for moa in the woods, it dosnt exist. Moa stands still. Deer dont. If you want a entry rifle that takes game, this is the one.If your trying out for the shooting team buy a m-77. We only use Hornady Whitetail ammo and we destroy pie plates in all weather conditions. The trigger is crisp. The free floating barrel is accurate, and the recoil is minimal I do suggest a set of Burris Signature rings to hold the scope tight.. September 18, 2014
Good Bang for your Buck Ok, let me start off by saying I'm picky. If a gun isn't shooting MOA or better I'm not happy. That being said I wasn't happy with this gun to start with. I was shooting 1.5" groups using Winchester Super X 150 grain in my 308. Most hunters would be happy with this. I on the other hand demand a little more from my guns. After epoxying the stock, dampening the buttstock, and free floating it better I am down to MOA using Hornady American Whitetail 150 grain loads. I will say out of the box this gun is slightly better than the Savage Axis and 1,000 times better than a Remington 770 (anything is better than a 770). But I would say if you are going to do some work to the gun like I do an Axis is a better investment. For $50 less you can trim the trigger spring lowering the pull to 3.5 lbs and sand out the forearm and acheive the same accuracy. July 20, 2014

A: 
There is no one "best" cartridge for hunting whitetails. Caliber selection should be influenced by game laws, experience of the hunter, shooting conditions, ammunition availability and personal preference. I have successfully and responsibly harvested whitetail deer with these centerfire rifle calibers: 223, 22-250, 243, 270 and 30-06. All are effective when shot placement is accurate. The smaller calibers are for head/neck shots and meat harvest. The 30-06 is for trophy hunting where shot placement is directed at vital organs (heart).
Other excellent calibers for whitetail deer include .308, 7mm, 25-06.

I suggest you visit with a hunter or sporting goods professional in your area and get their input. Good luck.

Hi, A good rule is the 243 Winchester and the 30-30 Winchester which are fine standard minimums and will humanely harvest the biggest buck. The .260 and 7mm08 Remington cartridges are fine light recoiling rounds and extremely accurate. The .30-06 is perhaps the most versatile. You could hunt just about anything with that caliber. Elk, moose, etc. Thank You!

Well, some people like Ford's, and some people like Chevrolets. My advice is to buy a .243 Winchester in a Ruger American and learn to shoot it. The "learn to shoot it" part is more important than the .243 Ruger part.
