View Full Version : Bush Predator, RRA Predator or RRA Varmint

I am in the market for a Varmint rifle, and I have narrowed my options down to three: Bushmaster Predator "20, RRA Predator Pursuit "20 or RRA Varmint A4 20" or 18" -- which one would you pick of these? #1 criteria: accuracy! #2 criteria: quality! #3 criteria: cool factor! 4# criteria: weight! Thank you!

I chose the Bushmaster Predator 20". I have had good experiences with it at the range but I have not tried one on coyotes.

I own or have owned all of these. The RRA predator persuit has one of the best berrel weights possible. Its light weight and match grade with a 1:8 twist. For a varminter, I'd recommend a 24" barrel for the extra fps. The bushmaster varminter special has a 24" bbl with the same profile as the predador persuit. If you don't mind extra weight, the RRA stuff (and even the Pred Persuit) have accuracy guarantees of .5 MOA (with match ammo) I believe.
