    Hey guys,
    Saw an article about this bolt action .308 a while back and I really liked the looks. Has anybody shot/owned one of these? What would you think about using it for a multi-purpose hunting rifle and paper puncher?

    I have one and like it. It's a bit heavy for hunting here in the Rockies, but is a great medium to long distance rifle. I'm still getting used to the Accu-Trigger (set too light, it can trip to a safety notch when closing the bolt), and I need better optics, but I enjoy shooting it at metal plates out to 400 yards. The stock is comfortable and has a decent recoil pad. It is not a high end precision rifle, but is a great gun for the money.

    I also have one and do use it for hunting. It is extremely accurate for me at the 100 and 150 yard range. I do not try to shoot over that range. I use a Burris Fullfield II 3-9X scope and it serves me and the rifle very well. My accutrigger was set in the factory and I do not touch it. It works very well for me.

    Remember, real life shooting is not just sitting at table with rifle in a caldwell or laying on sand bags. You may be in the woods and leaning on a tree or using a shooting stick or you may walk upon a target and fire quickly in the off hand position. If that is your purpose, that's what you should practice and your expectations should match with the reality of your hunting.
