I had TIVOed that episode and watched it just today. It was the featured rifle in the Vanguard series 2, and it was in .308 caliber.
It got rave reviews from Gun Nuts. They especially liked the 3.25# two-stage trigger, and the upgraded composite stock w/ free floated barrel. The price, too, is very reasonable at $489.
They shot a sub 0.5 MOA group.
The only negative, and perhaps not a negative for some, was the weight at 7 1/2 lbs.
A very "high value" rifle in my opinion.
