Re: Remington Predator R15
I have had mine for two years. I have the predator 223. I use it for badgers, bobcats, coyotes and deer...of course squirrels also. I have tried to get use to the trigger but can't. I am going with the Geissele trigger, the enhanced version. I am use to 1.5-2.5 lb triggers. I am very very pleased with everything but the trigger. It is very accurate.
I reload with the sierra blitzking 55 gr. and the sierra 65 gr. spbt. I tried many loads and ended up with the exact loads the new sierra manual has for the AR/1x9 twist, perfect match.
I listed the animals above because with the 55 gr blitzking all but one animal out of probably 60 plus have stopped in their tracks(not counting squirrels and prairie dogs). I shot one deer with the 65 gr spbt, which dressed out at 140lbs(No hide, head or legs). It went through a rib going in and through one on the opposite side and stuck under the hide at just under 200 yards. 65 gr retained 56 gr.
I use Reloader 15, H335 and Tac(by Ramshot). Ramshot powders are not temperature sensitive.
I use Rem 7 1/2 primers only for my Ar's.
A bit long winded !!! Hope it helps a bit.
