    Ruger American Predator .223 Range Report

    Got out today with my new Ruger American Predator in .223. I loaded up some 55 gr Hornady moly AMAX over Benchmark and had some pretty favorable results. Powder load ranged from 24.5-25.2 and all grouped under an inch. Also loaded up some 75 gr Hornady HPBT Match over Benchmark for my Windham Weaponry 223 Wylde AR and found a half inch load for it.

    Never messed with Benchmark much but I'm a fan now! I'll continue to refine these loads a bit.

    The Ruger? I've proven that a "cheap" rifle can shoot but I'll likely end up spending more money making it a rifle I really like. The stock would be first on the list of improvements. I also need to continue modding the trigger as it's just OK at this point.

    My thoughts are generally clear. My typing, not so much.

    Can't wait for the range report for the Boyd's At One stock that you are getting ready to order.

    Yeah, it's been studied. Looks lefty compliant.

    I am going to take the Dremel to the factory stock one more time to try to truly float the barrel.

    I agree.
