This gun has caught my intrest since I first saw it but there is very little info on how it actually performs. I know many dont like it because they believe it to be a marketing scheme. I for one like the the way it looks and after I picked one up I was hooked. Nice positive griping surfaces, well balanced and light enough to carry all day. Im stuck between this and the SPS Varmint which is considerably heavier. I was just wondering if anyone has any pictures of grouping from an unmodified out-of-the-box version using off the shelf ammo? Some info on the how the trigger performs perhaps? How about snow and other foreign matter gettin in the muzzel break cut-outs while hunting?

I have one in 22-250 and love it!
I dont have nay pics of groups right now, but I can get .5 MOA with handloads, right around 1-1.25 MOA with factory.
As far as twigs and snow in the muzzle brake, I havent had any problems, it hasnt been out in the snow yet but I have had it in quite a bit of brush. I just give it a little jiggle and glance at it before I shoot. even if it did cause any problems, it would be made up for by the great sight picture you can maintain while shooting.
