I have had a few Christensen including a 338 with a carbon barrel and I would star clear of them. The ones I have had started throwing wild shots once the rifles got to around 300rds. They were 3/4-1 moa guns up until that. They're not horrible but I believe you can Do better. Something like a Sako S20 or Tika T3 tactical would be my suggestion.
I’ve had 9 Christensen Arms rifles. Mostly The Ridgeline but one ELR in 338 Lapua which is a switch rifle with a 27” 30-338 Lapua Imp Christensen Arms carbon barrel. It shoots the 245 gr Berger EOL very well and rings my AR500 plate at 1000 like no other. It’s just an awesome rifle. My 6.5 PRC Ridgeline is going on 600 rounds. I would own another.
FWIW. I have an ELR 300 rum 220 eldx bugholes. ELR in 28 Nosler 162 eldx consistent 5/8. Ridgeline 6.5 PRC bugholes with 156 eol 1/2 consistent with 143 eldx I did change the stock on ridgeline to a carbon stockys and bedded it. ELRs I just keep feeding. No experience with their steel barrels.
I have 3 Christensen rifles, a MPR .300 WM steel barrel, MPR .338 Lapua carbon barrel and a BA Tactical in .300 WM carbon barrel, they all shoot better than I do. I without question will own another. Great rifles and I hear their customer service is great also!
I have a MPR in 338 LM. I put an elite iron Sierra suppressor on mine. It shoots very well! I’m going to swap out the NXS for a Nx8 4-32 to shave a little weight off it. I have a load running 300gr nosler accubonds @ 2690fps that will keep 3 shots under .75” consistently.
Very nice rifle Thebear!!
I decided to wait on the suppressor, there is a new one coming out. I have a Leupold 7-35 MK 5 illuminated, it is not a light rifle by any means. I have zero complaints on Christensen Arms!
