From another site from LSI Legacy Sports International rep. Of course the prices listed are suggested retail

Quote:
The YOTE pattern is the only flavor in the predator hunting genre right now, Which will be available to some distributors and special orders. Current Stock colors are; Black, Green, Kryptek Highlander and Multicam. As soon as we get git in a steady supply of all proposed calibers we will more than likely be looking into different stocks. A couple of members have proposed modifying current stocks but im sorry its just not that easy. We have to pay a large chunk of money to have a new mold developed to any manufacturer and then test and modify. We do it right from the start, a ground up made to fit stock. Stocks arent something you can just modify to work and expect 100% perfect results. Bare with us, as these gain popularity there will be more stocks/mounts/bottom metals available. These are still in their infancy but the future looks VERY bright.

From what has been posted where those came from the barreled action will be an option

Outstanding. This is perfect for anyone sensitive to recoil. I have killed a few deer with my AR Grendel, and I've been thoroughly pleased with it. I don't think you could beat it in a small framed rifle for kids.

Exactly my thinking. I'm gonna need to get one of these.

How is the Howa action and trigger? I've never been near a Howa rifle.

MINI ACTION!!!!!

I just saw that! Even shorter than a standard short action. Dear God that thing could be cycled about as fast a bolt action .22lr wirh a whole lot more oomph going down range!

If they'll make one with a length of pull around 12" or less, I'll buy one.

Triggers are alright for a production gun. A few years ago they were pretty bad but competition in the market seems to have encouraged them to do better.

Of course there is always Timiney if the stock trigger isn't good enough.

After guiding youth hunts now for many years I also see some real potential for this as a youth caliber. It would also be good for my wife who loves to shoot but hates loud, heavy, or inaccurate guns. Maybe this is her unicorn.

The rubberized Howa/Hogue stock in black or green is aluminum pillar-bedded. The nylon-like plastic used on the Hogue stock does not stick well to epoxy or fiberglass, so if you want to glass bed it, you'll have to go in there and drill a few holes, rough it up a bit, etc..

I've looked around and have not found much in the way of aftermarket stocks, so far. There soon will be, most likely, at least from Boyds if nobody else.

It sounds like a very nice lightweight deer/pig gun to me. They will also soon be available in .222 Remington, if not already - but I am more excited about the 6.5 Grendel chambering.

Dunno if the Howa 1500 triggers made by Timney and Rifle Basix will fit this action.

I called every warehouse that I buy from, some of them didn't know anything about them, and one says they have a part # but don't know when they will arrive. I have put a green short barrel on my wish list with all of them!

The current plan is midyear 2016 for them to be available here in the US. In time to get one and have it ready for 2016 seasons. Their initial prototypes are here and from reports doing pretty good sub MOA with Hornady factory ammo. The prototypes are 1:9 twist barrels and it has been suggested they try 1:8 twist like their 6.5X55 offerings were in.

Wonder what kind of velocity it would push a 130 gr. Berger VLD?

Staying within SAAMI Spec of 52000 PSI around 2450 to 2500 max. That is what I am getting from the CZ 527 with the 130gr Berger Hybrid. Some are pushing it to 60000 PSI in their bolt actions and getting 2600fps with the 130s. Have pushed the 123gr amax to 2700 in the CZ but at that got a little sticky bolt lift. with that bullet 2650 fps no over due pressure signs.

With the 130gr bullet Hodgdon CFE223 is for sure one of the powders of choice another is leverevolution. IMR 8208 is about as fast of powder as is practical for the 123 gr bullets and with the A-Max and SST 28.5 is the max load to be approached with caution.
