Anyone got their hands on one of the new Springfield waypoints? Looking to get a new rifle & I’m between these two rifles. I have a ridgeline 6.5 prc so kind leaning towards the traverse. The traverse also offers more caliber choices.

There was a waypoint at local store, carbon barrel fixed buttstock, 6.5cm. I thought it felt very well made, the action was smooth and didn't have much cock on close. Hard to say a lot without disassembly to inspect bedding and fitment of bottom metal. I've saw a few CA ridgelines with poor out of center chambers that still shot okay. One particular example, the riflings go all the way to the case neck on about 1/3 the radius of the freebore. Sent it to CA and they fixed nothing as it printed sub moa(which I already knew from shooting) I think the waypoint will have better fit/finish personally. Are BSF barrels as good or better than CA? Idk. I personally would look at a seekins element or plain havak for a lightweight rifle. They're proven shooters and Glen will make things right if there are any issues.
