What's your go to Predator Rifle?

My rifle started out as a Remington 700 ADL 223. With a 24in barrel. I had it cut to 18.5", Duracoted (before cerakote was cool) and added a LVSF take off stock.

Here is a video of a 212 pound boar hog I shot at 236yards, with the same rifle.

223 Rem, my favorite cartridge - you can't argue with truckloads of dead PD's and gophers.

Lately it has been an RAR-P in 204 with a Weaver V16 installed with Warne rings on the factory base. Before that it was a Remington 700 parts gun, 700 ADL action, McM Sako Hunter stock, 700 LVSF bsrrel in 223 with a VX-II 4-12x40 in Warne bases and rings.

Most shots are within 100 yards, some as close as 10 yards, and a very few, usually 'cats, that hang up over 100 yards away due to bad karma or something.

25-06, Rem 700 CDL, 6x Leupold.

Usually 115 gr Berger VLD or 115 gr Nosler Ballistic Tip. It's convenient using the same rifle as I use for mule deer & pronghorn antelope. Kinda rough on coyote hides sometimes.

The vast majority of the time it's a Remington AR-15 topped with an 80's Simmons 2.5x10 Aetech scope with 50 gr hollow points. Most my shots are under 200 yards and this has worked well so far.

Longer shots are handled by a DPMS LR-260 with a 2.5x10 Burris firing 120 gr Ballistic Tips or 123 gr SST.

700BDL in 17Rem with a T10 Weaver occasionally, love the rifle and cartridge but need to put some different glass on it for calling.

Most likely it’ll be my 18” PSA 223AR with a 1.25-4 Firedot Leupold. I might be shooting 40gr Varmeggedons or Vmax, 50 or 55 Btips, 53Vmax, 75gr HPBT Hornadys, or 77TMKs or something else just depending on the day. They all kill coyotes and more often than not pigs, I like them all and use whatever I have loaded up.

Most of the time it's my Tikka SL 223 8 twist.

But this upcoming winter I think I'll be running this RAR ranch rifle more.

Depending on the mood that strikes me on that particular day....current favorite has been a Remington Model 7 Predator in 22-250, sometimes it's a Model 7 Predator in 223, sometimes an LVSF in 243, and sometimes a Model 7 stainless in 223.
