Have y'all noticed the flex induced accuracy issues on the factory stock off a bipod? Also to the guys running suppressors is there a huge POI shift? Was going to do a 700 but now reconsidering one of these.

I shoot mine off the bipod all the time and have no problems.

Get with arrow smith, a member on the site. He can get you a good deal on a vortex scope.

I won't know if there is any POI shift with the suppressor, it will NEVER be shot without it. I did do some repeatability tests, though, and a group I shot with the can mounted for all 3 was equal to one shot when dismounting and remounting the can between shots. That was my concern with a cheap can. I'm hopeful that the HPA passes sooner rather than later and I will build cans for every single gun I own so I don't have to move this one around.

My RARP didn't like the 129gr Superformance loads, only shooting them into 1.5" or so. It does like the 143 ELD-x load, with 3 of 4 touching (4th was a called flyer in 20 mph wind- bench was moving). Headed back to the range on Friday to check again.

Sounds great. Yea now just need to decide between the 6.5 and 308. With how cheap they are you could almost get a two for one deal compared to doing a Remington 700.

I've had mine for a couple months. Haven't even shot it yet. I was waiting on my Boyd's stock to come in. Then was taking my sweet time prepping it for glass bedding. It was my 1st time to bed a stock. I think it came out pretty good. I can wait to get her to the range! Mine's in .223. The plan is for it to be my "go to" predator rifle, provided it produces the accuracy I'm wanting.

I had horizontal stringing which seemed to be a bipod induced flex issue. Quit using the bipod and it went away.

On a different note shot my first animal with the 143 ELD-X yesterday. The 8 point was DRT at about 160 yds. The jacket separated from the rest of the bullet but it did do what it was supposed to do.

Anybody have one in .243? If so, how are the results? Going to pull the trigger on one here soon and leaning towards a Tikka since I'm a big fan, but this is intriguing me especially with that Boyd's stock.

Yea, I'm pretty die hard Tikka, but I like the fact that the Ruger has a heavier barrel and is threaded. I've handled them and the actions aren't bad, but not comparable to a Tikka. Accuracy is what I'm most curious about as I know what the Tikka will print.

I am not sure this changes my mind but here is an interesting, seemingly unbiased review of the RAP 6.5 CM. What are you guys thoughts? I am not a rifle guy but it still seems like a lot of gun for the money...especially considering the accuracy.

I agree with the review. The comb height is the biggest issue for me followed by the mushy stock. I still like mine and will probably add a Boyds and see how that works. The 143 ELD-x has proven to be quite accurate and, with this weekends shot, deadly as well. I like it as a beater rifle.

I've inletted the stock and polished the trigger. I'm running out of things to do until Santa brings me scope money. Should I polish the bolt and remove the machining grooves?

I'm looking at a brake before I've ever fired the first shot out of mine. I believe it's a 5/8"-24. Is that correct?

On the cheap- stiffen the stock with Rockite (YouTube it). Also adds some weight. Mine weighs 10.5 unloaded with the scope now. You can add a cheek riser for about 40 or so. I made my own from some kydex I had laying around.

When I did the Rockite, I also added a short piece of pic rain to the bottom of the forearm for my QD bipod.

I also polished up the bolt by simply working the fire out of it after slathering it with JB Bore compound. Goes without saying that a thorough cleaning is in order after.

I have read about a few people using Rockite. I couldn't find it but it did find Bondo Glass. I didn't prep the surface well (at all) and the little blocks came out like ice cubes while I was sanding.

I like the product because it's got fiberglass in it and it gets super hard. Not sure how to make it stick.

Any ideas?

One thing that might help is to fill the stock a little higher than each "cubed" section so the rockite or bondo acts as one unit rather than a bunch of small square units. I used rockite and found it on amazon for about $12.

Take an 1/8" drill and punch holes through all the verticals and dimple the inside of the stock itself. The rockite is self leveling and filling. Punch the holes, level the stock in a vise then pour it in. Consistency of pancake batter. Any Ace or similar hardware store should have the rockite. Lowe's did not that I could find. I got it at Lake Hardware in Angleton.

+1 on drilling the holes so that the medium flows between each section. Forgot to mention that.

Take an 1/8" drill and punch holes through all the verticals and dimple the inside of the stock itself. The rockite is self leveling and filling. Punch the holes, level the stock in a vise then pour it in. Consistency of pancake batter. Any Ace or similar hardware store should have the rockite. Lowe's did not that I could find. I got it at Lake Hardware in Angleton.


The second attempt was a success. I used my stippling tool to make a lot of ridges in the inside of the stock. It's solid now.

I want to try one of these. Too bad it's so close to Christmas.
All the best,

Too bad? Sounds like the perfect reason!

It would be... but family gifts are priority. I'll buy a little later.
