I still remember when I learned of them 5 or 6 years ago. Have owned/own about 6 since. They just shoot.

They look like awesome wolf rifles but a bit rich for me.

I probably would have picked the 6.5 CM if it had been a choice, not just other.

My 6.5 CM with Berger 140 VLD's over 42.5 gr H4350 at 2830 fps is deadly accurate.
That would be my choice!

The 6.5 SAUM aka 6.5 4S sounds like an amazing caliber!
