I am in the market for a heavy barrel semi-precision .308. I was looking at the CDNN catalog and noticed that they still had some of the discontinued PBR's for sale. Can anyone tell me how these stack up to the Remington 700 SPS Tactical and the Savage 10FP? I have heard that the post-64 model 70 actions weren't that great and quality control sucked for the last few years of production, is that the case with the FN PBR? The cheaper models have a pushfeed action and the more expensive ones have CRF, is it worth the extra money? I have handled the SPS Tac. and really liked the feel of the Hogue stock, the PBR has the same stock but with full length aluminum frame, and it is in the same price range as the SPS.

Thanks,
Brad

I bought one of the PBR-XP removable magazine barreled actions from CDNN and bought a black Hogue stock from them to go with it. I bought mine when they first got them and the stock is not bedded. I ended-up adding weight to the stock and pouring some epoxy to it to stiffen it. With all that said, I love the rifle. The fit and finish of the metal is first rate. The gun shoots outrageously well, but, it took me a long time to find what it likes to eat. When I first started to shoot it my group sizes were very disappointing. When I discovered 185 grain Lapua's over 42.5 grain of IMR 4895 it drilled one hole groups with ten rounds in less than 1/2 MOA.

Thanks marsche, the PBR-XP is the one with controlled round feed, right? It sounds like you got a good one! I should have picked up one of those barreled actions, but money was a little tight at the time.

I bought a PBR XP with the controlled run feed in .308 and it is an excellent rifle, extremely accurate (sub MOA) and trigger, after adjustment, is great.

FN makes good stuff.
