The Ruger American is a awesome first rifle and should fit you well. Get a .308 and it will cover everything you need in the continental U.S. very accurate and well made for the price point. Put a leupold vx-1 on it and have at it. Good luck with your purchase. Shoulder a few first a comfortable gun is invaluable.
It's not being cocky if you can back it up!

A .243 Winchester is also a good caliber for someone beginning to shoot because of its mild recoil and it has a little less recoil than the .308 and 7mm08.

I personally prefer an older model savage 110 long action in .308 for a number of reasons, First and foremost they are accurate right out of the box and they are not bad priced. Second getting parts for repair and or modifications is easy. Lastly I just like the way one can make them shoot. Here is a picture of mine.

I would go with a 308 for a first rifle. More knock down power than a 243. My wife is 5'2 and that's her favorite gun. Savage 308 with accu trigger
