Which RRA upper
 
So I have a dilemma. Not a huge one, but I'm debating on getting either the Rock River Varmint 20" or the RRA Predator Pursuit. Does anyone have experience with these 2 uppers? Or like one more than the other? I understand there isn't too much difference in the 2, but am not sure which one to buy!?!

Varmint: $1,125 @ 9.2 pounds = $122.28 per pound

Pursuit: $1,120 @ 8.1 pounds = $138.27 per pound

Well The Pursuit is 1.1 pounds lighter, but the Varmint is the better deal. :D

Why don't you ask RRA?

Tell us what they say.

When I was getting ready to buy my RRA, I sent them an e-mail with a bunch of questions and concerns and they came right back with the answers. They're really busy these days, like everyone else, but I think their customer service is still good. Their Varmit and Predator lines are supposed to be very accurate. Good luck!

Both use wilson barrels which are top notch accuracy barrels.

Just comes down to what features you want. Weight is good for varminting or target shooting where you wont be moving much. It just boils down to which feature set you want.

That's a good idea, I'll send them an email here soon. RRA definitely has a good line-up and I've watched a few YouTube videos where there reps are extremely knowledgable! Thanks for the insight guys...

I've had a RRA Varminter for several years,it has been an excellent rifle with zero problems.It shoots very good with anything from 55gr to 75gr bullets.
Also RRA rifles have the Wylde chambered barrels,and you can shoot 5.56 or 223 ammo out of them without having chamber pressure issues.

You will have a good rifle in either the Varminter or the Predator Pursuit,and you'll never notice the 1lb difference between the two guns.

That would be Wilson Arms that RRA use's, better barrel than wilson combat.
Seen a couple of RRA 24" varments shot some .38" groups with federal 69gr match ammo. Even better with handloads.

I wish I could see them in person and determine which one I want that way. I know they are both great upper and both have great reviews. Also, I think I'd like to get the bead blasted barrel option. Is there any upside to having the bull barrel over the heavy besides just heat?

Also, I'm trying to get that "sniper" look to the rifle. That's why I'm being kinda picky.
