Stephen I went threw this with CA on a nice 6.5 Cr. After waiting 9 months on 3 returns I gave up. They told me the 1st time it just needed to be cleaned? Then they put on a new barrel and I would go threw the break process, testing loads. Then we would scope the barrels. One was bored crooked with rifling running into chamber neck. One had no riflings for 3 “ in the middle of the barrel and some were pulled. The 2nd was supposed to be hand picked?I have been doing some research and many posts from the past, like 2010 to as recent as 2016 seem to indicate that some of these rifles have issues. While I appreciate a sub-moa guarantee, i don't really want to buy a rifle, find that it is not a shooter and send it back for 6 months so the factory guys can fix the issues? Has CA resolved the issues it has had in the past? And as a bonus, if someone in the know can explain what the issues were and how they were resolved that would be icing on the cake. I watched videos from Jeff Brozovich over at another long range website and he really likes the ELR model and had good things to say about the accuracy. Maybe he was lucky and got a good one?
My gun smith has has a number of these in to be rebarreled.
My advice to anyone fighting these guns is to have them scoped before you fight with trying to find loads
