Hi there guys and gals. As the title says I have been seriously considering getting one of these rifles ever since I saw the first article on them. I think that the 18 1/2 heavy barrel .308 version would fit my idea of the almost perfect all-around rifle. Everything I have seen on the internet and youtube really sounds good, but I was wondering if anyone here has any first hand experience with them. I ask here because I am always impressed by the amount of knowledge and experience that I have found on this forum. So what do you folks think?
