The MSRP is $1399 and if the street price is a little lower, looks
like a lot for the money.

Doesn't even need a safety. Bolt handle up, or back is the safety.

I'd like to test drive one...

Not bad results for factory ammo, I'm sure reloads could tighten tighten up a bit.

Nice looking gun. Not sure it's worth $1100-$1200.

well if you were to get an entry Remington 700 for 400 a similar chassis would be at least 600. Throw in a base and threading and you are at 1100

Would that right-hand action be a deal breaker?

Might just be my first 6.5 in a couple of years. I'm a little surprised at no 7mm-08 or .223. I daydreamed about this gun a few days ago, wondering why nobody offered an AR-15 based (loosely) bolt gun. Guess I'm psychic?
