    Hello all!

    I wanted to get some info on my new rifle I purchased.

    It’s the big boy one, the Patriot Stainless Synthetic in .375 Ruger!

    I had been looking, and researching about this one, and finally pulled the trigger, so to say!

    What has been everyone’s experience that has owned one?

    I hope mine is a rush! I love medium bore rifles, just for their versatility. One rifle for hunting everything, kinda thing!

    Please tell me about your hunting experience and possible loads you do for yours.

    Welcome to the forum.

    You sure got yourself a thumper :)

    Not sure anyone here has a rifle like yours, so sit back and enjoy the rest of the forum but I wouldn't expect any direct responses. That is a very unique rifle. :)

    Thank you!

    Is it as hot in Florida as it is in Texas right now?

    Yeah, I thought it was time to finally own one, since I’m 25% Swede.

    Dang! I was hoping more people would own one like mine.
    But I will enjoy being on the forum, and hearing others accounts about their Patriot rifles.

    I certainly will.

    I’ve been debating with myself as to stiffening the forearm of the stock, and adding weight to the hollow butt stock.

    Stiffening the forearm can lead to better accuracy, plus adding weight.

    Adding weight to the butt stock will help in reducing felt recoil, of course, as you all well know.

    Shoot it first.

    Nothing wrong with having a plan of attack. But, shoot it a while first to figure out what's needed and not.

    I have used aluminum rod in savage stocks and bedded it with epoxy glue.

    You could always fill the void with lead shot...

    I agree with you!

    It may not need anything.

    I was thinking about buying an arrow shaft, and cutting it down, then open up slots in the lattice to put the shaft in, then epoxy it and fill the lattice just a hair shy of the top of the lattice.

    Yes, are correct with that one!!

    I was thinking of adding tubes of a thick, viscous oil, in combo with lead shot.

    Thank you having me.

    That's pretty much what I did with the savage.

    Here's what it looked like after trimming the ribbing and before pouring the epoxy.

    So what does ammo for that rifle cost? Is it on the store shelves?

    Depends on where you look.

    There are a few vendors that carry it. It can run as low as $60, all the way up to $100, depending on who makes it.

    But, I hand load, and the cost is a lot less than buying brand new ammo.
