I'm pretty confident in saying that Christensen Arms is the most overpriced, over-rated gun shop in America today. Anyone who knows precision equipment and precision shooting sees red flags all over their products.

Re: opinion on Christensen Carbon rifles

I have never owned a Christensen rifle nor do I plan on it. I have talked to many shooters who have had them or have them. Most hated or hate them. A few "love" them but none of those guys shoot it more than a few shells a year right before hunting season. They dont shoot them enough to have an opinion on them. They paid top dollar for them and they look like theyre on the cutting edge of technology so they must be the bomb.

Quite frankly, they may hold 1/2" when you get them but the barrels will cook in short order and wont hold the 1/2" groups for long.

My answer to this is. The only reason is to make the 7 RM look good. There is no other reason.

Re: opinion on Christensen Carbon rifles

I have a rem 700 in 300 rum and it shoots mediocre groups with hand loads. a 165 grain MRX with 93.5 grains of RL25 and federal 215 m primers on full lenth sized brass... Im looking to get it to shoot under an inch... I have a HS prescision full bed stock other wise it is stock... No other mods.. I have a VX # 6.5 x 20 x 50 mounted... Im either going to buy a new gun or have this one sent off and get the the thing to shoot as well as I can. I want the action trued and squared and im not oposed to rebarelling it ..... But im overwhelmed by the different types of after market barrels... Hart , shillen, lija, pac nor, the list goes on and on not to mention contours and twist rates.... Id love to hear some ideas you pros have... id consider a different cal. too. 7mm or Stw... would lover to hear any idea on that as well.... I like timney trigers but ive never shot a jewel.....oh ya lenth of barel and muzle brake or not ? BTW im not an english major nor do use spell check
