Just got one of these rifles in .22-250 and am interested to hear anything about others. I am surprised that my rifle does not have any factory bedding compound in the recoil lug recess - interested to hear if they are all like that since Winchester shoots a glob of bedding material into most of their M-70 stocks. Trigger is 5.25 lb with significant movement before and after letoff, that is not tricky to fix. Safety is somewhat difficult to operate, might get easier with use. Front stock bolt was in place, not tightened period, back is very tight. Fired ten shots in a break-in session and one lug is showing very nice contact, the other much less, a streak through the mid point only.
