Well here is a couple of pics of my new Yote destroyer.
Its a Savage model 12FVSS 22-250, topped of with a Nikon Monarch 6x18 scope. Bought it up in W. Virginia. Didn't even shoot it, drove home, and dropped it off at Predator Customs to have them finesse it a little. So these are the official "before" photos. Enjoy!

Bet it will be a nail driver! Hard to beat a Savage.

bet it will be accurate, but seems awful heavy for an eastern yote gun.

I have almost the same setup except mine is 7mm. great rifle but does get heave after awhile. Also, it is a Harris bipod.a very sturdy product. But can be a nightmare to get on. [img][/img]

I am not planning on carrying it all over the place. Its a setup gun. Harris bipod came with it. Let me tell you what. I got one hell of a deal on this! I can't wait to see what Jim from Predator can do with it.

It is the best shooting rifle I have ever shot. Not saying there arent better ones out there. I hand load all my rounds for it. It is heavy, but the weight takes alot of the recoil out. I am not real pleased with the bipod though. It is very hard to put on and take off.

You have any pet loads for it? I want to start loading my own to really push the limits of the rifle.
