Ruger expanded its Gunsite Scout product line in 2017, adding a model chambered in the hard-hitting .450 Bushmaster.

The Bushmaster model of the Scout Rifle is designed to offer a high-energy, big-bore cartridge in a compact and easy-to-handle rifle. The rifle weighs in at 6.6 pounds and features a 16.1-inch barrel with a 1:16 rate of twist and an 11/16-24 TPI threaded muzzle. The barrel is free-float and is cold-hammer forged. The gun also uses controlled-round feed and comes with a 4-round detachable box magazine.

Other features of the new gun include a Ruger Precision Rifle Hybrid Muzzle Brake and a soft recoil pad, which includes three 0.5-inch spacers that allow users to customize the length of pull to fit their personal preferences. The rifle also features the standard forward-mounted Picatinny rail found on many scout rifles.

The rifle also features an American Walnut stock and is constructed with an alloy steel barrel and receiver with a matte-black finish. For those who prefer a more traditional scope mount, the steel receiver features integral scope mounts that provide a stable mounting surface for scope rings.

The rifle was designed in conjunction with Gunsite Academy and features the academy rollstamp. The suggested retail price on the new Ruger Gunsite Scout in .450 Bushmaster is $1,199.
