Re: MOA Maximum?

Summersville; down here in Texas County. You'll like the MOA---ask Carroll Pilant at Sierra. He attends the long range shoot every year in Sundance, WY. If you should ever travel south to my neck of the woods, you're more than welcome to shoot mine.

Thanks for the offer. I'm certainly leaning towards the MOA.

Re: MOA Maximum?

Hi Ernie. Can you give me your opinion of the MOA chambered in .260 Remington? Looking at a 15" barrel. I'm guessing pretty darn accurate. How was the felt recoil? I feel a brake would be best, but would like your opinion. Thanks

Re: MOA Maximum?

It will work great

Get the solid bottom brake if you intend to hunt with it.

Re: MOA Maximum?

I have four MOA's and several extra barrels. Barrels are fast and easy to change. Triggers are easy to adjust and they are really smooth and crisp. I have a couple barrels that are 15" and they are great. I have some as short a 10". I agree with Ernie that you want the closed bottom break. I recommend break especially if you might ever want to use rifle scope. You have made a good choice in caliber for what you are wanting to do with it. Rich will also help you make some decisions if your not sure. You will see some used come up once-in-a-while. Expect around a 10 month wait if ordering new. They are worth the wait. I don't think you will regret ever getting one. You will probably get addicted and want more. After shooting them it is hard to go back to shooting Encores and Contenders.

There are many shooters there with experience with the MOA Maximum also.

Good luck!
