Project Coyote – Our Long Range Rifle

Welcome to the latest project from Survival Defense Lab, a long range rifle I like to call:



So, this is a personal project of mine that I’ve decided to share with the internet as it goes along. While shooting has long been a passion of mine, I haven’t had a really good long range rifle. Finally that’s changing and in a very exciting way. So exciting, that I’ve decided to share it with you!

As many of you know I got married recently and for a wedding gift, a really close friend of mine purchased a Ruger American Predator for me. Here’s a beautiful picture of me holding it the first day I shot it:

Eye and Ear Protection!
Always wear eye and ear protection! And admire that trigger discipline!

And another of me shooting it:


Straight out of the box this thing is a beast and with the planned upgrades, it’s easily going to become a tack driver. As the upgrades come I’ll write a small post outlining what I did (or had done) and why it’s important in a long range rifle. This is going to be an exciting journey and I’m glad I get to share it with you.

Finally, let’s talk about why I’m calling this long range rifle Project Coyote. The RAP is designed for predator hunting, hence the name, and one predator we hunt a lot here is the coyote. They’re a smart creature that unfortunately if left unchecked can decimate other populations, so hunters are given a bounty to help keep the population under control. With that being said, the Coyote is still an incredible animal that is worthy of respect and admiration. Even when being hunted it’s cunning and smarts makes the hunt a lot more complicated than “sit in a stand and shoot at the animal eating corn”. So in honor of that I’ve named this gun the Coyote. Also I like the color coyote, so there’s that.

Anyways, thanks for reading and if you have any suggestions for this build let me know in the comments below.
