Looking for a 20” or so rifle with ability to drop medium/ small game and critters out to 400. So far, I’m looking at the ruger American predator in 6mm creedmoor. I’ve had a few 6mms and love the round. Very fast and flat shooting. With Hornady 103gr eld x hunting loads, should be able to keep them at 2400fps at 400 yards and 1350-1400 ft lbs of energy. Most shots on deer would be within 200, but wanting something to stretch out if the need arose. Small game and critters would be more out to longer distances I’d imagine that would be enough for my needs.
