First off I truly do not want to start any animosity here.
I believe that if one person asks an opinion, and another person with a known wealth of experience and knowledge does responds, we should not start cutting on said person. I personally enjoyed reading this thread and many other "dead horse" threads about the same subject. It seems to me, that there is more often than not, different or more information on each thread about the same subject. I value the actual knowledge of everyone here.
I feel in the previous posts it was stated that the information was fact (actual costs) or experience. There was nothing that I read which stated that someone is wrong about how they spent their money.
As a pee-on who has never built a rifle, but is in the process this is all valuable information.
If you pi$$ off people with negative, nonsense banter, that contributes zero knowledge to the subject of the thread then do it in the humor section or on an outhouse wall.
Everyone here has different levels of experience and knowledge in the many areas of long range hunting. If people stop replying or posting on this forum that will really suck!

I have had several sports who show up with their hot rod rifle and want to show their guide that they can really shoot. Some are really knowledgable and most are not, but they own rifles that are very capable of long range whatever you want. Two men that come to mind owned carbon wrapped barrel rifles of the brand you ask about. One could kind of shoot, and the other could not hit a 12" x 12" gong at 400 yards, let alone 800yards. This individual shot a box of 300rum bullets in 15 minutes.
In the course of shooting these rifles, both owners claimed that their rifle did not get hot????? I did not question them, but I do know the heat is there. What is the deal on how long to let the barrel cool down?
I was not impressed with their rifle balistic performance, but both rifles sure were light to pack which was really nice. As a side note, both of these guys shot their elk at less then 100 yards with their long range rig
This is my experience with this rifle brand.
