I am considering purchasing one of these and have found one that I can get for $805 after paying for the transfer and then sending off for the rebate. I would like to hear from anyone that has one and has been shooting it enough to figure out what they like or don't like, how it shoots and what you have considered changing on it if anything now that you have been shooting it.

So, I take it no one has had any time behind one of these yet? I have read a lot of good stuff about them but was really hoping for some input from a few people that have purchased and been shooting one long enough to have an experience based opinion on it. I am going back and forth between going this route or buying a 24" heavy barreled and threaded howa action and putting into a Bell and Carlson stock.

This will be worth what you paid for it as I haven't handled a magpul hunter, but I don't think I'd care for the looks or the grip angle.

I've heard good things about Howa 1500s, and I like the triggers the little bit I've fondled them in gunshops. But metric tenon threads and lack of stock selection has kept me from trying one.

If I was in the mood for a heavy barrel 308 Rem 700, I'd look at picking up a barreled action and dropping it into a Grayboe renegade with MPA dbm like this:

Or:

possibly wait for the new KRG bravo for $350

That seems steep to me. Black Friday had the Magpul and bottom metal for $249. Buy a 700 varmint fo $349 on sale and swap the stock. Boom, <$650 after tax.

Exactly what I did. $309 for an ADL Varmint after rebate and $250 for the magpul 700 with mag. $75 to cut and thread.

I have one with 22-250 heavy barrel for varmint/coyote, seems worth the money to me.

Thanks for the input guys, I like to see what other guys are actually doing and getting good results from. I looked at going the SPS varmint route but did not really want the 26" barrel. I was worried about the 1 in 12 twist on the varmint barrel if I were to have 4" cut off of it. Is anyone aware of another gun that comes from Remington with the heavy barrel contour and 1 in 10 twist that is longer than 20"?

I would make sure and handle one of those Magpul Stocks before you buy one. I thought they were going to be a nice option and was set on buying one until I handled it. They felt very cheap and plasticky to me.

I got an HS Precision stock and a B&C off of Ebay for around $200 which are much nicer options.

Which of those two stocks that you mentioned did you end up preferring?

I bought a 20" SPS Tac heavy bbl and put it in a Magpul Hunter stock w/bottom metal and mag. I like it. I paid ~$185 for it when they came out. Hard to beat for <$200.

I bought the gun and stock separate. At the end of the day I've been very pleased with the setup.

I got two different styles, so kind of hard to compare. But I really like them both.

I got a HS stock that is more of a traditional hunting stock...just like this one:
https://redhawkrifles.com/products/rifle...on/psv029-97-hs

And the B&C is more of a tactical style stock...like this one:

Okay, no one spoke up singing the praises of the magpul package and I have researched the topic as nauseum! I found a good deal on Brownell's and ordered the 24" threaded heavy barreled action in 308. I think I am going to put it in a Bell and Carlson Stock. I have a Sig Tango 6 I am going to mount on top of it and see what it will do! Thanks for all the input.

Cabela's will run them like that periodically. There was a deal last year where you could get one, and after the rebate you'd be out ~$330 after tax. Several people commented (rightly) that was cheaper than you could buy a donor action.

Be watching for the Black Friday specials in a few weeks.
