    I got my brother a ruger American predator in 6.5 Grendel for Christmas 2018. I just picked up the same rifle for my dad in .243 yesterday.

    Let’s see ruger Americans with any upgrades you may have, Target pics, or hunting pics. Trying to get some ideas for upgrades for them. I’ll start with my brothers ruger in 6.5 Grendel.

    Only changes is a Caldwell bipod, Burris 30mm rings, muzzle brake for that super vicious recoil :D, and a Bushnell engage 2-10x44 FFP MOA scope.

    Very nice!! That BC is really stepping up the ruger game. I picked my dads ruger up last week and put a Nikon buckmasters on it. Pumped to see what this little rifle is capable of.

    That B @ C stock is a very nice upgrade for the Ruger. I have been fluting quite a few of these bolts lately. Keep the pics Coming!:D:D
