Was thinking about purchasing this rifle. Have always wanted a .257 WM, cant beat the price. I want it for a 700 yard coyote/mule deer gun. I can get one from Wal-Mart with a 10% discount for $350. Of course there is the drawback and that is the barrel length. It only has a 24" tube. I'm still going to buy it no matter what, once I shoot it out, I'll get a 26" or 28". Just curious as to what others thoughts are.
