Ruger has further expanded their catalog of rifles chambered for the new .350 Legend cartridge by adding a Ruger Scout Rifle to the mix.
“The straight-walled .350 Legend round is attractive for hunters who can appreciate its impressive muzzle energy and low recoil,” notes Ruger in a statement. “This new rifle chambered in .350 Legend is another bolt-action offering from Ruger that provides the rugged reliability that Ruger Scout Rifles are known for.”
The new round, which premiered last year and caused a buzz for its attributes that included a claim to the throne of the fastest production straight-walled cartridge on the market, offers more energy than the classic .30-30 Win. with less recoil than the .243 Win. Ruger had previously added the chambering to two models of their American Ranch Rifle and one of their AR-556 MPR.
The .350 Legend Ruger Scout Rifle is light– at just 6.3-pounds– and has a compact aluminum bedded 16.5-inch threaded barrel for an overall length of about 37-inches, or about the same size as a Ruger Mini-14.
Other features include an adjustable ghost ring rear aperture sight and a non-glare, protected blade front sight along with a forward-mounted Picatinny rail. The muzzle brake, as the barrel has a 1/2x28TPI thread pitch, can be removed in lieu of other devices or a suppressor.
With a 5-shot magazine, the Ruger Scout in .350 Legend has an MSRP of $1139 and is set to be available in any color you want– so long as that color is black.
As for ammo, Winchester is currently offering the Legend in a variety of loads including a 350-grain open tip Super Suppressed subsonic, a 150-grain Extreme Point, a 145-grain FMJ, and a 180-grain Power Point, among others.
