    Keep seeing a NIB .308 for a grand; always assumed they were much more, and fairly rare. I need another rifle badly :rolleyes:.

    That's what I paid for mine. I've seen them quite a bit in that range. Great gun, get it.

    I just bought one a couple of weeks ago. $1039.00 plus tax from my local gun shop in .308. Shoots good so far. Less than 100 rounds through the barrel. Shot a 5/8" 100 yd 3 shot group with Hornady 165 SST Superformance ammo(but I probably flinched those together) The average groups so far have been under 1 inch with everything that I have shot so far.

    Went hunting with Fusion 180 gr bullets, killed 3 deer, 1 @ 235yds, 1 @ 211yds. and 1 at 301yds. All DRT. Factory trigger is ok, mine has the Xmark pro. It is easy to adjust and breaks clean. Mine is set at 3 1/4 lbs, which felt good to me until I put the trigger scale on it.:) May have to get a Timney for it.

    My setup for now. Nikon Monarch 2.5-10 with Mil Dot, Bipod for the front and sand sock or like last weekend my binoculars under the rear for support.

    Pics from this last weekend. The buck was a 240lb 7 point shot at 301 yds with the 5R. Trying to prove to my buddy that you don't really need a .300 Weatherby to kill whitetails.

    Bought mine in .308 a year ago for $950. Got a fantastic load from the Sniper's Hide forum... .5" MOA... extremely accurate to 500 meters, which is as far as I've shot it.
