Mossberg Patriot .308 Winchester Bolt-Action Rifle

This Mossberg Patriot .308 Winchester Bolt-Action Rifle is equipped with a 22-inch spiral fluted barrel. The rifle uses bolt action with a streamlined bolt handle mossberg patriot 308 rifle .Barrel

Again, there are parts I like, especially the slim profile with cut fluting to the 22” barrel – that 22” ensures it’s very lightweight. There are pros and cons to this obviously. Yes, it’s light, but the recessed muzzle at 0.615” in diameter has to be flared out to accept a thread for a sound moderator if it is to sit squarely on the barrel when fitted. The fluting reduces weight and might aid a little with cooling, which is essential on a slim-profile barrel as it will heat up very quickly and accuracy will be adversely affected mossberg patriot 308 rifle .

You have a 1 in 10 twist rate, so fine for projectiles up to 100gr and 22” is a good comprise length, as we all know .243 Wins with short barrels can be contrary in what they like to shoot.

Reminiscent of the Savage 110 rifles is the head spacing system, which uses an adjustable barrel nut to the receiver, so better than most cheaper guns in this price range. Overall finish is a matt bluing to barrel and action, which suits the steel and finish of the rest of the gun. At present, the calibres available are .243 Win, .308 Win and 6.5 Creedmoor only and no sights are offered except the one-piece Picatinny rail – which is far better and user-friendly anyway.

Features and Benefits

  • Bolt action with a 4+1 capacity
  • 22-inch spiral fluted barrel
  • Synthetic stock with classic-style grips
  • Stainless-steel Cerakote finish
  • Streamlined bolt handle
  • Adjustable trigger
  • Weaver-style base

The 22-inch barrel also helps reduce the weight. The Predator comes in either the Flat Dark Earth with a matte blued barrel or in Strata Camo with a Cerakote Patriot Brown barrel. I have to say, I preferred the contrast of the matte blued barrel against the FDE stock. The barrel is threaded for either a suppressor or a muzzle break. The Predator comes with a Picatinny rail for mounting optics. In this case I mounted a Blackhound Optics long range scope.

On the first trip to the range, I got the scope sighted in and ran the rifle through its paces with a variety of ammunition. This was my first experience with the 6.5 Creedmoor round and though I knew it had a reputation for having less punishing recoil, I couldn’t help but wonder if the recoil would really be easier in spite of the rifle’s light weight.
