RAR/Boyds Trigger Guard & Mag Catch

I couldn't live with the trigger guard and mag catch being plastic, so I built something that fit the rest of it. Thought you others out there who have gone down the path of setting these great rifles into a Boyd's might like. Made some extra I'm going to try and move as well.

Just finished the assembly of my RAR Predator with the Boyds I received for Christmas. I Acra-Glassed it, installed an Odin Works Atlas 6.5mm Comp, and mounted a Vortex atop Seekins Precision Rings.

Sunny days are here, got a good bit of the Prime Ammo it loves, time for some shooting...

Are you hand loading for it yet? I just dialed in my loads yesterday. I got .359" grouping at 100 yds for a 3-shot group.

140gr SST's, 34.4 gr. Varget, CCI primers and Hornady brass. Long enough to just kiss the lances.

Your gun looks really sharp. I'm seriously considering the Boyd's for my RAR 6.5 Creedmoor. How do you like it?

Hand loading is what I do for most all my rifles, so that was/is going to be the plan a ways down the road. I tried some factory Hornady Superformance with the 129 SST's first, pal and I thought I ended up with a lemon based on all the rifle reviews. Holding 3" group would be generous.

He had a case of the Prime he was shooting through his Ruger Precision, we loaded a mag and wow.... First 3 touching at 100, ran ballistics and adjusted for 500 & 800 yard at steel with hits.

For now I've got to shoot up the Prime, but I will need to get a good hunting load developed.
