Recently I bought a Ruger American Predator in 6.5 Creedmoor. Like my competition rifle, the Ruger Precision Rifle, also in 6.5 CM, the RAP is very accurate, especially with Hornady's 143 gr. ELD-X hunting ammo and their 140 gr. ELD-M match ammo. In a few weeks I'll be reloading my own. I'm thinking that with the fairly flat trajectory of the 6.5CM that this would be a good antelope rifle. As you may guess, I've never hunt antelope before. Here are some "upgrades" I've made to the RAP: 1. Boyd's Classic Laminated stock 2. Timney trigger (set at 2 lbs.) 3. 20 MOA Picatinny scope rail 4. SWFA 3 -15 x 42 scope with mil/mil and FFP 5. flush cup sling swivels and Magpul modular sling Some may think these upgrades to an inexpensive $375. rifle is lipstick on a pig but this "pig" is very accurate. Now, where is a good place for this Henderson, NV hunter to go to find good antelope hunting (on public lands)? I have a nice 12 - 40 x 60 mm Leopold spotting scope and Bushnell 10X ARC laser range finder binoculars to help me. I can always take the bipod off my competition rifle and put it on the RAP. I have a flush cup/Pic. rail for it. Eric B.
