The Predator Pursuit has a thinner barrel. I checked awhile back and it's about a pound lighter overall.

That makes sense. When i was comparing the pics i thought the pursuit had a thinner barrel. Thanks for confirming that. It was driving me nuts for a while :)

My relative in AZ just ordered a Rock River Predator Pursuit (8 week order time) and is putting a Burris Black Diamond on it etc. for varmints. I hope to get over there before it gets hot and see how it shoots.:)

He wanted the Pursuit (lighter) so he could add a big scope and bipod and still have reasonable weight.

Get an RRA N/M setup, The most accurate upper system ive used to date. Its heavy and likes long high BC 223 bullets. LOVES 77gr SMKS and 75gr BTHP.

I sell both and the Pursuit is most certainly lighter. I would choose it over the varmint after handling both.
