That's pretty sweet.

I picked up a LH Predator in 308 a while back. Swapped the flush-fit magazine for AICS pattern, that was easy to do, but the stock still sucks.

If MDT offered a LH chassis, I'd go that route. But being a lefty, what do we get? Boyds plywood. Stop laughing. (grin)

My RH RAR-P is in an ESS. Gets around the flimsy original stock and crappy rotary mags all in one fell swoop.

I don't see a LH option.

I picked up mine for the wife today in 6.5 cm LH cut the barrel back to 20" this afternoon. Going to be her Christmas present just need to paint the stock and reinforce it some so it doesn't flex up and put pressure on the barrel.

I have a LH 6.5 CM but if I could find a LH 223 I'd snap it up.


There are 2 rules to success:

1. Never tell everything that you know.

I’ve taken the spring clear out on all mine. Maybe a more permanent option for you than super glue.

pull the main spring out clip about a coil and a half off of it slightly stretch it polish off a few rough edges and you have a 2 lb trigger quickly and easily like in 10 minutes. leave the blade intact and it makes a very much like a two-stage trigger very suitable very friendly. very easy. I've done four or five this way quick and easy

Push the stupid blade back, and slap a trigger shoe on it. No super glue needed......

Mine is the rotary mag. Still waiting on the Ruger replacement. If I have time this week I hope to work up a load for this rifle. Probably start with 50 or 55 BT’s but may try 60Sierra TMK’s. Depends on my mood at the moment.

The new " stack" magazine Ruger sent me fixed the feeding problems I was having with my 6.5CR.

It is hilarious that Ruger struggles to build a reliable magazine. Magazine fed bolt action rifles have only been around for over a century.

IMR 3031 doesn't get a lot of love. It rarely gives best MV. But in 22-250 and 45-70, it has been very good to me. If you have some give it a whirl.

It only took about 4 calls to ruger but someone finally sent me two 308 mags. They feed like butter. If the wind dies down tomorrow Hopefully I’ll have time to work up a load.

If you using night vision at night it’s likely that you will not be shooting at long ranges. I would use something that doesn’t go as far and allows you to shoot subsonic rounds. This would be safer and quieter.

Set up a tripod that holds a 360 degree red light over your head. You should be able to see their eyes and they won’t see the light. Zap them with a flashlight to ID them just before you pull the trigger.

I’ve got a pulsar thermion2XP 50 that’s currently mounted on another 22-250. I’ve shot several coyotes with it between 250-350 yards. It’s a pretty amazing piece of equipment. I just bought the Ruger because I didn’t want to thread any of my other 22-250’s plus the Ruger has a 1-10” twist barrel so I’ll have the option to run heavier bullets. I bought the pulsar right before they introduced the LR model (laser rangefinder). Currently any yotie I see inside of 300 is pretty much a layup. The optic has good enough resolution that shots to 500 or more could easily be made IF I knew the range.
