Okay I have really been wanting to extend my distance and stay supersonic. Both of my .308 can get out to 955 with 29.95 pressure and out to 1150 with 25.50 pressure. Being that these 2 don't stay supersonic and I want to reach 1400 or so and be supersonic i have been looking at the .260, 6.5x284, and 6.5 creedmoor. After 3 months of reading reviews it looks as if the creedmoor will last longer, lower recoil, COAL can be longer, and so on. So now that I have my caliber which of the 2 models do I choose. Either the Savage Long Range Hunter 6.5 creedmoor or the Savage 10 Predator 6.5 creedmoor. I have never liked pencil barrels and the LRH has a pencil barrel but I do like the fact that it has a cheek rest and 26" barrel but will it be as accurate and consistent as the 10 predator? I like the 10 predator because of the heavy taper barrel, tactical bolt knob, and the flutes heck I can always put a break on it if I have too. I am just stuck on these 2 guns and don't know which one will be the better of the 2. I have heard that the LRH has a tight action (like that of the model 12) but what about the predator does it too have the same action? If so I guess my best bet and safe bet would be to go with the predator. Please tell me there is someone out there that has these 2 rifles and can tell me more about them. I am new to the forum but have been lurking in the shadows for awhile. A little about myself I am a licensed guide in Arizona and am a certified gunsmith (but have not got my FFL yet). I love hunting our grey ghost (Coues deer) and all of you know that most shots on them are 400+ yards. My longest Coues kill has been 650 yards with my .308. I had seen a 120+ buck a few weeks ago and had a tag but he was at 1385 and knew my gun may not kill him and did not want to chance it. Anyways thanks in advance for all your help.
