I picked up the rifle today (Ruger VT in .204, with a 26-inch barrel). After fiddling with the mounts, I finally topped it with a Mueller 8.5-25 X 50 Eradicator illuminated scope. The rifle is as beefy as it looks. My Ruger 30-06 looks like a Red Rider bb-gun next to the thing. The rifle is just sitting on the bi-pod. I may install a Harris bi-pod as well.I'll sight it in on Wed. and then out next weekend for one last try for bobcat.Watch out coyotes! http://www.jesseshunting.com/photopost/data/500/17349Picture11-med.jpg

That's a good looking gun. Do you think that scope might be a bit powerful for predator hunting. 8.5-25 power doesn't give you much field of view, especially at night. But give it a try and let use know how it works out. I wouldn't mind seeing a target or two after you sight it in. :D Sorry I meant to send you a PM telling you I moved your post to equipment too. :D

Yeah, I was looking at something in the 6x range to start, but I couldn't pass up the deal. I have a number of other scope options if this one seems too powerful. This gun is a daytime/nighttime weapon and I definitely like to see what I'm shooting at when calling. Besides, it looks cool!ShooterJohn, I moved my post last night one I got a PM.
