    Does anyone have one of these? How do they shoot? I read an article on these in the last American Rifleman magazine and it really gave me the itch to own one. Seems like a pretty cool rig and one in .223 or .243 would be handy as hell on a Coyote stand.

    I've got one in 6.5 Creed and is has been great so far. My only complaint is you can't easily take it apart to clean.

    Action is butter and easily hitting steels at 300 yards. Can't wait to stretch it out more.

    Awesome! Good reports all around. I actually got to fondle one this weekend in our Local Big 5. They had one in .223 but they were pretty proud of it so I let them keep it. The wood was beautiful but I was really let down with the bluing on the barrel. It looked like one of those cheap H&R single shots. I was expecting a nice deep blue on them for the price point.

    There were reports of feeding issues on the .223 given the size of the round vs the size of the assembly when open. One guy said the round would jam a round cockeyed randomly when trying to close the bolt.


    I don't have the issue in mine but my 6.5 rounds are almost 3". Dunno what 223 is offhand
