Thanks for the reply.
I am thinking about buying.
I would prefer the predator because of the reviews I have read.
But I was wanting some input from our local louisianans on their experience. Like accuracy,
ammo, any problems, etc.

Re: Ruger American Predator 6.5 or 308
I've been debating another 308 or moving to creedmoor myself. In my case, I already have the ammo for the 308, and getting a 6.5 would be another type of ammo I have to purchase. I see a great appeal in shooting further but I usually don't shoot that far anyways... the thought about going past 200 yards to retrieve the game without a quad doesn't seem fun for me. However, my style of shooting involves multiple follow ups when I come across a sounder of hogs. The 6.5 is reported to have less recoil than the 308 and may be more comfortable to shoot. on paper, they seem equal aside from the grain of the bullet and the speed of the projectile at long range. I'll probably lean towards whichever solution is less expensive though if it's more than 20%... all things being equal, i'd probably get the 6.5 due to the reported recoil factor.
