Anyone have one of these?- How do you like it?- I got my son one of these for Christmas.- It's a Ruger American Predator.
The last time we were at the range, we had all my hunting rifles out.- 300 Weatherby Mag, 300 Winchester Mag, 7mm Remington Mag, 30-06,- etc... all in either Weatherby or Sako.- My son said that we have all big, heavy guns that are really loud and kick a lot.- Why not get a more nimble rifle that's more pleasant to shoot at the range?- Good point.- -Also, cost to shoot.- -Even though I hand load, the 300 Weatherby eats 88.5 grains of RL22 per shot.- So it's not cheap.
I can't wait to get this one to the range.- I think I'll buy two boxes of cheap factory ammo to start.- Then I'll get dies and bullets.- Thinking of a 127 grain Barnes Triple Shock.- RL17 or IMR4350 will push that bullet to around 2900.
