Ruger's American Rifle has been a success since day one, so it's little surprise that the line has continued to grow with each passing year. 2016 will be no different—for the first time, Ruger is making the American available in magnum calibers. 7mm Rem. Mag. and 300 Win. Mag. variants—both with MSRPs of $699—will be reaching dealer's shelves later this year.

American Rifleman Managing Editor Joe Kurtenbach had an opportunity to speak to the folks at Ruger about the new addition late last year. You can get an inside look at their conversation, and learn more about the rifle, with the video embedded above.
