looks like a good one. its got mostly the right parts for long rang target shooting. altho the wylde chambering is a bit odd if your shooting off the shelf ammo. wylde is a compromise tween 556 and 223 and isnt great shakes for either where extreme accuracy is concerned. however if you load your own ammo it doesnt matter as you can form your reloaded brass after firing at least once and get your headspacing tuned.

if your buying off the shelf i would opt for a .223 chambering as there is more ammo off the shelf designed for accuracy than 556 shelf ammo.

reloading your own would be the key to that particular rifle.

i like RRA's stuff and use and buy some of their rifle uppers and lowers.

Rock River makes good stuff but please don't spend your hard earned on a very nice rifle like a RR and then go crappy on the scope. There are decent scopes out there for under $500 if you look around, i.e. the Bushmaster Elite 3200 or 4200 line are mostly under $500 and aren't bad and the Falcon line of scopes are good for the money as well. I've used the Konus M30 and the Leupold Mark AR scopes and they are mostly under $300.

I hope this helps a bit.
