Default Favorite Go To Predator Rifle

I know we all have our favorite Predator Rifle. Mine is a 16" Bushmaster M4 Optics Ready Carbine set up with a Bushnell Elite 3200 1.5x4.5x32mm Fire Fly Riflescope.

I am fixing to add a 26" Stainless-Steel Encore .22-250 to the list.

What are your favorites?

Larry

Don't know that I have a favorite, by lately I have been having a great deal of fun with my cheap o Remington SPR-94 12 gauge over .223.

Bushmaster AR-15 or 22-250 but I rarely take out my 22-250 as most of my shots are under 200 yards

Just ordered a Savage Mod. 10, Predator in .223. We'll see if it deserves to be a favorite.

I mostly shoot my 6WOA in an AR, with 65 grain VMax bullets at 3400 fps. If I need more power I use my 243 AI with 87 gr VMax bullets. I haven't used a 223 in several years, not that it didn't kill well, but the 6's will give me a good kill on a less than perfect opportunity shot.

When going after predators, I never leave home without my Remington R-15 in .223

But I use Nosler BTs and I just bought an upper in 20 Practical that is shooting 32 gr V-max bullets at over 4100 that I am going to try this year.
