My RAP does a job on Nebraska deer.

November firearm season started on 11/12/2016 here in Nebraska and the season started off with a bang. My brother-in-law and I headed out just before sun up and we saw a few does and a buck 800 yards from his house in a cornfield. After looking at the buck I decided he was too good to pass up. However, by the time I made the decision they headed towards a tree claim. We decided to let them rest and headed to other areas we had scouted earlier this year. We were not gone 20 minutes and the deers are back but in a cornfield opposite of the first one. I snuck up hid behind some thickets and waited. It seemed like hours, but they finally made it 180 yards from me. I squeezed my trigger and I knew I hit him good. His head fell towards the ground and he started walking very slow. I racked another round and was going to squeeze it for good measure, but he fell 25 yards from where I originally shot him! Then I took another small muley buck at 75 yards and a nice size doe at 187 yards. My 95gr SST handloads and my RAP are a great combination on deer.[IMG][URL=http://s690.photobucket.com/user/RajuyElbey/media/2016%20Nebraska%20%20firearm%20season/20161112_081931.jpg.html]

Good job man! Thank you for posting. That first deer would be hard to pass up, but all of them are meat on the table. Gonna be some good eatin in your house.

How well does your RAP group on paper? I have been thinking of getting one because of the heavier barrel.

I never notice a RAP in the used rack, but there are always a ton of used whip barreled Americans for sale. People don't sell off their tack drivers usually.

Thanks GSR Fan. When you find the right combination, she shoots like a dream! Here is a few pictures with my coyote load.

Congratulations on a great hunting season! That big buck is beautiful, it's going to make an awesome Euro-mount. You must have some kind of freezer space.
That rifle is nice! Your coyote load with the 58gr V-Max really stacks 'em in the bullseye. The pictures of your downed game says all that needs to be said about the performance of those 95gr SST's. Impressive Sir!

Ruger American Predator. His .243 has a heavier barrel profile than the sporter version.

Congrats XD nice shooting. Ive seen some RAP in 308 do exellent sniping past 600yds. On youtube they really do have a heavier barrel its a great bargain imo. My new Remi 783 does the job for me well but had I known what the RAP is capable of i shure would have pony uped another 200$ for one no doubt.
