Re: Accuracy International rifles.
One of the nice features of the true AI's is they are designed to change the barrels in the field. Everything is pre-headspaced and the threads trued so you can change it out with a barrel wrench and drive on with the mission knowing you've still got a 1/2 moa shooter. You can also go from 308 to 300win by switchiung out the tube/bolt. The action is designed to hold about 2 lbs of sand and mud and still cycle and shoot. The stock is just a big arse block of aluminum,,, no flex there.
Like you said,, It's no bench rest rig,, but I've seen a crap load of .5 moa rifles not shoot 2 moa at 1000. For that matter,, I've seen alot of .2moa rifles not shot 2 moa at 1000.(20 shot F class groups guys). I've also never seen a guy walk thru the woods with a 21 lbs rifle,,, but then,, I've never hunted with any of you fella's. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
HS makes a fine rifle, and I'm sure you'll like it very much. Get a good recoil pad, and some advil.
