What a horrible report. No mention of one stat about the rifle, it's caliber, what they do that is so 'cutting edge' or anything.

From what I saw, it looked like a standard CNC driven producgtion facility that uses an endmill to inlet their custom carbon and fiberglass stocks.

400M for a test target, that we don't get to see, doesn't impress me much....

And the best rifle in Europe? Well, that is a pretty small pond to be swimming in. Bring that stick over to the good old U.S. of A. and let's see how it stacks up.

Best part of the video is the end when the reporters backside comes about 2" off the ground.

99% of the stocks on the wall were McMillian design stocks. with 50% of them being the Edge and the Edge HRB. The action looks like one of 100 different Remmy 700 knock offs. I have seen smiths with 3 times the equipment and every last piece CNC driven so what. The one shot I seen the dude missed the the target by 2 or 3 feet.

I dun seen me some close-tolerance machinin' machines (Aerospace stuff being what it is) but I wasn't never so impressed as when I seent that there lathe with a cover on it.
Take a tour of the Raytheon plant in Indianapolis sometime. Oh wait.. you can't.
Tango, the Russki sniper didn't miss. The peon who set the target out put it too low and way to the right!
