FN SPR A3G doesn't shoot 1/2 MOA as promised. It shoots way better! :)

I wouldn't say better but my extreme spreads did go down a noticeable amount. Kevin Thomas does not recommend the 205 primer in this size of case in colder temps. Other than that I like them.

I think he meant carbon fiber. On your 300 rum?

I paid just under 3k and bought it from a local dealer. It is a steep price but it is also a very high quality piece of shooting equipment on par with any custom I have had or have. You could pay more than 3k for a solid custom 308 and have to wait 8 months to a year to get. The only difference is you don't get to pick and choose certain features. That said, with the features you get and this level of accuracy what more could a shooter want?

It looked like the bottom rifle in your picture had a carbon fiber barrel.

Sorry I missed that. Yes it does. I forgot the was a pic of all of them.

I think their ok but not enough so to merit the price. I think it's a great idea but the industry has a ways to go.

This one is getting ready for a rebarrel. It will be a Sendero contour fluted.

I know what you mean by accurate directly out of the box. I have two FNs and swear by them. One PBR XP that nails it out to 500yrds no problem and an SPR in 300wsm. Ok i cheated a bit on this one I put a Brux MTU #10 barrel on it.
