    Bought this from @knifeman32 a few weeks back. Its the Ruger American Predator in 308. 18.5" Threaded heavy tapered Barrel. Added a Vortex Viper HS 4-16x44 and a index check rest. Got it on paper at a hundred and it shot fairly nice. I've only got 12 rounds through it at the moment but so far I'm impressed. Today I took the drexel to the stock and relived a few spots that were touching the barrel I'll post an update once I work up a load for the 165 gr Accubonds I picked up for it. Forgot to mention I ordered a Silencerco Harvester 30 for it yesterday.

    Very nice sir. Been eyeing one of these in 6.5 creedmoor for a long range bolt gun. Skeptical on the price but they seem to have great reviews. I wish they made the predator series in the desert tan that the ranch model comes in

    Yeah I debated a lot about 6.5 vs 308 and the shorter Barrel was more important to me. I'm going to hunt suppressed with it so the 3.5" shorter Barrel sold me on it

    Loaded up some 165 gr accubonds and shot them today. She likes 40.5 gr of IMR 4064 in a LC case with a CCI200 primer. Here's a 3 shot group at 100.
