Mossberg’s bolt-action Patriot rifles, which were introduced in 2015, have a large and growing fanbase thanks to the rifle’s build quality and affordable price point. Perhaps the most impressive feature of the American-made Patriot, though, this gun’s impressive accuracy potential which is on par with rifles costing hundreds more. This year, Mossberg is offering their Patriot Predator Cerakote/Strata Camo rifle chambered in Hornady’s popular new 6.5 PRC, and it may just be the best bargain in big game rifles.
The Patriot Predator utilizes a push-feed, dual-lug action with a spiral-fluted bolt and plunger-type ejector. It features a polymer stock with Strata camo which pairs nicely the Patriot Brown Cerakote finish on the metalwork. The 24-inch fluted button rifled sporter barrel comes with a 5/8” x 24 threaded muzzle so it’s simple to add a suppressor to this rifle. There’s a polymer bedding block in the stock and the barrel is free floated, and the barrel nut feature allows for very exact headspacing and, in turn, superb accuracy. Other key features include a four-round detachable box magazine, a two-position rocker-type safety, and oversized bolt handle and a top rail for mounting optics to the rifle. Like all Patriot rifles, the Predator comes with Mossberg’s user-adjustable Lightning Bolt Action (LBA) bladed trigger. The new Patriot Predator Strata 6.5 PRC weighs in at just 6.5 pounds, so it’s light enough to carry all day, even at high elevations.
The Patriot Predator Strata is an ideal rifle platform for the hot new 6.5 PRC. Released by Hornady in 2018, the 6.5 PRC, or Precision Rifle Cartridge, was designed from the outset to handle long, heavy-for-caliber bullets with high ballistic coefficients. The 6.5 PRC shoots the same 143-grain ELD-X and 147-grain ELD Match bullets as the popular 6.5 Creedmoor, but it pushes those bullets 200 feet per second faster from the muzzle than its Creedmoor cousin. Match shooters like the 6.5 PRC’s ability to push high-B.C. bullets to long distances with moderate recoil. Those same attributes are beneficial for hunters, too. With an MSRP of just $540 the stylish new Patriot Predator Cerakote/Strata from Mossberg is the most economical way to take advantage of all the 6.5 PRC cartridge has to offer hunters.
