This rifle is amazing. It has never jammed with any kind of ammo and shoots to point of aim with different bullet weights. I've tried the light varmint slugs, and the heavy 75 grain TAP personal protection slugs. They all group under 2" at 100 yards (from a rest). The absolute best ammo that I've used is the 69 grain. Cor Bon, Double Tap, Black Hills remanufactured 69 grain all produce the best results. I consistently get one inch groups. How can you top this with an over-the-counter rifle that has had no customization. It's extremely fast with no recoil to speak of. Stay away from the Ruger 30 round mags. They are squishy. The 20 round mags are the best (if you can find any in this nutso gun climate). I give this rifle my highest rating. - JOE
one of the best predator rifles i own !! target trigger should be on all rifles PERIOD !i also like the ultra strong laminated stock.any company can put a $ 2.00 camo plastic stock on,but ruger chose a fabulous color scheme laminate. the 24" barrel certainly helps w/ velocity .if i had four hands,i'd give this rifle a 4 thumbs up !! nice job RUGER....& the price is nice . - SHIANNE
i love everything about my .204 predator. the laminated stock is not only strong the color scheme beautiful, checkering sharp & slim enough. the target trigger ( 2 stage ) & 24" barrel (stainless ) makes a very accurate caliber even better. ruger got EVERYTHING right on this model. this rifle shoots like a target gun ( yet light enough to carry all day ) and shoots .25" groups w/ handloads consistently. the price is also light for all of its features....can't get much better, in fact you WON'T get any better in a predator rifle !! thanks RUGER. - BOB
I purchased one of these recently as a replacement for my old Nylon 66, i love it! I will preserve the Nylon, But what a fun gun to shoot. The Ruger in this configuration is such a fun gun, wish I had bought it years ago, but didn\'t have Syn stock, and stainless years ago.
Definitely recommend! - D. G.
this gun is-wait for it-AWESOME!! the 223 round is so much fun to shoot. people think the accuracy is terrible but this gun is dead on 120 yards the casing is ejected so far you don\'t need to worry about getting hit by a hot casing this gun is over all amazing and with a high cap mag you can spend all day at the range, and beacuse the ammos cheap too. - S.
