I will be picking it up shortly from lobster but it will take a bit for me to get it scoped and give my full opinion. I was drawn to it for several reasons.
Price was under a grand for 6.5 creed and prob under 9 if you want it in 308
Barrels are known for accuracy and I have seen and heard nothing but similar stories to sniper above. It's factory crowned and threaded.
Built on a Remington 700 footprint which means a million options for parts and assessories. I believe they improved many of the 700's short comings though I'm no expert by any means.
Stock is basically like a cheap McMillan. Length of pull, cheak riser and a chassis embedded but it doesn't look like a chassis which I like
AICS mags without having to upgrade is awesome. I'll take 30$ pmags all day over 100$ proprietary mags .
Accurate barrel, stiff chassis, pre threaded, AICS mag ready, upgraded stock, smooth action and extraction, and I've heard the stock trigger in the hmr is great with no creep, glass like break and little overtravel.... that's what sent me this direction over the common 700 or a savage route.
But I don't know much of anything and haven't yet shot it so take it for what you will and someone with more experience can correct anything I said that was inaccurate.
