    Nice! What caliber did you get? I've never played the precision shooting game, but I would like to try it out.

    Looks like a Nikon scope from what I can tell and my guess would be a .308 since Nikon makes a M308 scope.

    I like this riffle, just wondering why they made it bolt action?

    That's like asking why they didn't make the Civic a pickup truck.

    Bolt guns tend to be more accurate than a gas gun....

    I don't need this, since my range only goes out to 200 yards, and I can easily get that with any of my rifles, but for some reason I feel as though I'm going to get it anyways....

    If I didn't have a couple of custom bolt guns I'd definitely get one. Initial reviews are very good.

    Lgs had one in stock last week but it was in 243 caliber, if I get one it would be in 6.5 Creedmoor.

    I plan on getting one and in boring 308. I can shoot it next to my SR-762 for grins.

    By the way it will be interesting to see how it does against one of my Ruger No. 1s. My SR-762 lost to my Ruger No.1 in 30-06 at 1000 yards.

    I just bought one off GB today. I belong to a range that goes to 1000 yards. They have 1000 yard shoots a couple times a month. I'd like to give that a try eventually. I need to start researching scopes and what ammo is working best with these rifles. I don't reload.
