    I am a sucker for a Schnable stock. I am liking what I see! Adjustable trigger, good stock geometry (at least it looks like it) 3 safety, likely a high quality barrel..... 9,3x62 and 6,5x55. And sub 7lbs! Very tempting

    Looks like a promising competitor for the Tikka T3.

    I looked it up so I could see some good pictures of it. Very sexy rifle especially in a wood stock version. I'm not pleased with accuracy though, if all they could squeeze out for the smallest group was just over an inch that's not good. All Tikka's, most Savages, Remington's all shoot under an inch. One would think if you send a gun out for evaluation you would want to send a real shooter.
    Distance is not an issue, but the wind can make it interesting!

    I think many gun publications will not go out of their way not to build an expectation of what a new firearm can really do. And I think that is smart, you never know what average Joe can do at the bench so why try to squeak out a .5 MOA group and report it only to then get a ton of letters to the editor saying "they" could not get close to it. Almost any shooter can squeeze 1 MOA out of modern production rifle with good factory ammo today so it's safe to report a 1.10 or so.

    Good point!

    I'm not interested very much in one, but while canvassing the news this was on the front page.

    Wambli..........you gotta keep that herd thinned(?) or balanced with the right amount of European firearms. :jester: :guns: :guns:

    Euro guns don't count, they're metric, totally different gun collection.

    That is also a 5 shot group. Most magazines do 3 shot groups, I think the only major publication that holds itself to a 5 shot for a more real world accuracy display, is American Rifleman. And that is 5 shot with factory ammo. I'm guessing playing around with other factory rounds, or handloads (obviously for this group here) you could get that thing shooting right along any Savage or Remington.

    Wambli - Tikka DOES make those cool chamberings, they just don't sell them to us lowly Americans. We get the standard 308/30-06/Mag chamberings. Can't blame them, really, those interesting to us cartridges, are standard fare to the Euro's, and usually don't sell that well here. If only they had a 7x57!

    Hey, you are right..........metric calibers, metric parts/screws, metric bbl lengths, sights graduated metrically......heck velocity in meters per second and energy in joules.

    Foreign stuff.................now there is an argument he can use. A completely different herd/breed of gun.
