Personally, I'd pass on a .308 autoloader altogether - but that's just me. The bolt guns are more accurate and are not so heavy. - And cost less at the same time.

If I just had to have a .308...

I've looked over my "to-do" list, and sniping at people is conspicuously absent there.

Maybe this is why I see discussions of this sort to be masturbatory at best. The various governments will...

The aluminum ought to work out pretty well. Keeping the weight down is a major factor.

For a 50mm scope, one of those "tallboy" beer cans might be pretty close to the right size.

They've put that rearmost swivel stud on the forearm (for a bipod, one would assume ) just about exactly where I would tend to put my hand, when shooting off-hand.

Ouch!

I think you'll be very pleased with it, a really excellent firearm.

With 1/4 minute clicks at 100 yards:

4 clicks per inch at 100 yards.

8 clicks per inch at 50 yards.

16 clicks per inch at 25 yards.
