I haven't heard of that before but I want one!
The expected accuracy of the DSR-1 is almost extreme: some sources state sub-.2 MOA accuracy (0.20 inch / 5 mm groups measured center-to-center at 100 yards) with correct ammunition ad environment conditions.
GunTech, what does that version cost? Closer to an AR, or a small car?

I think the SRS is going to run about $3000. But keep in mind that you can switch calibers.

The idea of a bolt action bull pup just seams so odd to me I guess I would have to try it before I knock it.

The AMP DSR 1 has been on sale here in Oz for a while. The main reason they'd be rare is the stratospheric price: LINK (http://www.sportingguns.com.au/Rifles/AMP/AMP.html) How about a lightly used one, with Docter scope and accesories, for $12999 US?

the DSR1 was only $8000 here in the US several years ago. by the time I saved up $8k, exchange rates had gone through the tubes and it would have been well over $16k and because of that, they'd just stopped importing them. oh well. i still want one though.

I remember a local gun shop had a Walther 2000 counter sniper rifle. The owner was over in Germany and brought it back with him because it was unique. Price $3995. I thought about buying it but thought it was a wee bit expensive. It sat there for probably 2 years before someone out of state heard he had it and bought it sight unseen. Today, had I bought it I could easily get $10,000 or more for that gun.

then again a rifle capable of 1/4" groups out of the box with commercial ammo is well worth every penny, just think if a WA2000 costs $3995 now how much will its price increase 10 years from now? just like ALS said...

did a little research on the SRS, interinting rifle. it also would be cheaper (relitively speaking) than the dsr-1 because it is american made.
the web site said it is offered in .308 winchester and .338 laupa magnum, does any one know if it is offered in .300 magnum too?
one of these in .300mag with a good leupold scope would be just what i am looking for.
not that i dont like the .308, but its trajectory isnt as flat as the .300, and the .338lm is just too rare and expensive to shoot.

did a little more digging on the SRS...
its avilible in FOUR calibers
-.243 winchester (would be handy for gopher busters at 800 yards)
-.300 winchester magnum
-.338 laupa magnum
my only question now is: are all of the diffrent caliber barrels threaded for a muzzle brake, its not a question of recoil (especially with the .243) im just curious. it seem to me that the .300 magnum would definately be fitted with a brake, due to its heavier recoil.
a $3000 rifle like this one, combined with a $1200 leupold scope, and some healthy hand-loading would definately take the cake at the local rifle range. vaporizing water-filled milk jugs at 1000 yards never gets old...

I bet they'll put either of those in the next Hitman game as an alternative to the good old Walther 2000.
