Cabela's Allen had one in .243, remember the .243 has a 1-7.5 twist which puts it in the 6mm Creedmoor category. Ask Tony, "Trigger Time" about the 105gr Berger in a quick twisted .243.

They had it priced 1299.99

The one in ft worth had it last week. I handled it. Trigger was not too bad. Only thing I didn't like was the safety. I thought it was hard to manipulate.

Still haven't found 6.5s

Put the safety on fire and never touch it again.

That would be my thought process, especially with a bolt gun

I would rather have a tikka with a bad azz barrel for close to the same money

But you wouldn't have a dbm or chassis

Fondled the one in 243 at Cabelas in Fort worth the other day. I really want the 6.5 though.

I read the article about it in "Amercian Rifleman". I was impressed with the features.

DBM that accepts about four brands of mags, including P-mags, and A.I. (patent pending on that miracle design)
20 MOA pic rail
Folding stock
Fully adjustable L.O.P. and check height
Twist rate to support high BC long bullets
Ambi-safety
Forward pic rail for attaching NV or Thermal

Bet I forgot something. At any rate if I were to procur one I would only have to mount a scope on it, and the rifle would compete without any mods made.

The real question is this. For the same or possibly less money, would you own a tikka ctr in 260?
Comes with an eight twist treaded barrel, great action, good trigger, dbm, and a trg22 mag.

Still has a pretty iffy trigger. If I got one I would replace that.

That stinks. I shot one at a shoot in Oklahoma and the trigger was spongy with a Capitol S.
Other than that it was a cool gun.
