Re: Have they fixed Ruger American Ranch Rifle's feeding problem???

I have the Lucky 13 10 round mag and it works just fine. I think they make a 5 shot conversion. I have 2 Ruger mags and they will only feed when loaded with 3 rounds. Tried the mods posted on Youtube with negative results. The AR-15 version was not available when I bought the rifle. Wish it had been.

Re: 300 BLK, a Pain in the Brass

Yeah, I learned that lesson, too.

Best to buy LC brass to make your own.

Dies were a problem, too. Ended up using an RCBS small base sizer, Lyman M die expander, Hornady seater, and Lee Factory Crimp die. This combo works for me in a Ruger American and a S&W AR.

Re: Ruger American Ranch 300BLK - Magazine options?

I have the Lucky 13 magazine, 10 shot. Works perfectly and is very well made. Expensive, but a lot better than a rifle that does not feed.

I am very happy with it!
