    Just picked it up this afternoon. Sporter weight bbl, camo stock, .223 caliber.
    Trigger feels like it's around 4 lbs at minimum setting. I like the looks & feel of it. Won't get to shoot it until Tuesday. Anyone know what I might expect? If it can do 1 1/2 moa I'll be happy.

    A-Bolt's get bad press from time to time, but my only A-Bolt is great. Just buy 4 or 5 different factory loads (assuming you don't handload) and take it out. Don't let the barrel heat up too much -- my guess is that, since this is a .223, a couple of the loads will hold less than MOA. The key will be not letting that sporter bbl get hot.

    Have a super time...

    Thanks Richard,
    I've seen some bad press but also a lot of good reviews. Guess I'll find out on Tuesday.:rolleyes:
