A Sub-$450 Bolt-Action Ringing Steel At 1,800 Yards — Mossberg’s Patriot Predator


Editor’s Note: When this review was first published the Mossberg Patriot Predator had just come out and wasn’t yet widely available. It has since proven itself to be a very versatile, reliable, and accurate option especially if you are on a budget. They are also now widely available. 

I fondly remember picking up my grandfathers old dusty, faded hunting magazines and reading about hunting rifles. Unless you were buying a rifle from Kenny Jarrett, or other custom builders, sub-MOA rifles were nary to be found. Sometime during the late 90’s or early 2000, factory rifles started to appear that could produce MOA results with factory ammunition. These days, companies guarantee MOA accuracy and owners seem to fly into a fit of panic if their new rifle fails to group 1.047 inches at 100 yards.

  1. I have to disagree. The Remington 700 in a multitude of calibers has been sub-MOA since inception in the early 60's. This includes the no-frills model 78 produced in the late 70's and early 80's.
