My .17 Predator

by Dave Affleck

Now, after just over one hundred coyotes killed with my .17 Predator, plus several high country rock chuck hunting trips, a couple of prairie dog shooting sessions as well as a couple of days shooting jack rabbits with it, Iím even more pleased with this rifle than I was to start with.  Simply put, this project has turned into my favorite all around varmint/predator hunting rifle to date!  I like everything about it, the weight, the balance, the feel, the performance, case life, the accuracy, even the looks.  If I had it to do over, I donít think Iíd change a thing.  I canít think of too many rifles Iíve had built over the years that I can say that about!
