I recently got the American predator in 6.5cm I love it! out of the box sub-moa rifle! Aside from the flyers due to lack of rigidity in the fore-end of the stock out standing rifle. Will post updates as it comes along, I would like to get out to around 6-700 yards to see how it shoots. If debating on getting one do it; you cant beat the price and the quality!

Great buy, SavageGuy

I fired that same rifle last month and got nothing but good things to say about it.

Picatinny rail for nearly universal scope fit.

Such a smooth crisp trigger.. I didn't have a gauge, but it felt like around 4# or less

Solid heavy bolt for sturdy reliable function.

Threaded barrel for easy muzzle brake or flash suppress install.

1 1/2" spread at 100 yards from barrel resting on a rolled up towel

Very good recoil pad that tamed the 308 in the relatively light weight rifle.

Bottom line, damn fine rifle .. if you didn't know the price you would not guess it was a budget gun.

With that being said, I had a slight polish done to my seer and let me just tell you it took a crisp trigger to even better! I am truly in love with this rifle!

Savage,

I am happy for you buddy! I hope you enjoy that rifle and get your deer this year. You never fail to amaze me with all your antics and joy you spread among us on the thread. Now, I have a question, are you going to let me borrow that so I can shoot something out here? What's that song say? Put a little love in your heart!:rayoff:
I gotta doing something else too: yank************yank*******yank! Spike and I have got your number!:D

Have a good hunt this year!

Tommy

And.........Its my turn for a little 'yank yank yank'

Already shot my deer back in October! (Yes, this thread isn't new)
Mammal Fawn Terrestrial animal Snout Macropodidae

I thought I started a thread about it on here.......

And I shot it with my Savage 111, the American is for my 11 YO. He didn't get his deer this year, season just closed yesterday. But let me tell ya, he carried this thing for hours without complaining. The rifle is very light. And it does kick! But he doesn't seem to mind it.

We really did put this rifle through its paces though. Hunting in snow, rain, getting covered in mud. We'd come home after a hunt and just leave the gun in the back of the car- after two weeks of hunting like this I finally cleaned the gun and it looks as good as it did when it arrived at the LGS. It's been a good gun. Hopefully he'll get his deer next year!

Just got the 6.5 Creedmoor predator. Could not get the mag to feed properly. Someone mention a lot of bad mags? Eventually got it to cycle if it was inserted “just right”. Does not seem dependable, would def. be pissed if it jammed in a hunting situation. Rifle shot excellent groups out of the box
