As Kabob says, I've got one in 300 win mag. I like the gun, and it's a shooter, but it is a BIG rifle. 26" barrel is long. overall weight isn't bad, but it's a bit of an unwieldy rifle to hunt with. I'll have to go look, but I believe I got mine down to shooting .65 inch groups with factory Nosler Ammo - E-Tips.
I've been so busy that I haven't really had a chance to get it out and stretch it's legs, but it is a fun gun to shoot, the brake pretty well eliminates recoil, mine kicks less than my .270's do. But, it's LOUD. I target shoot with the brake on, and hunt with it off, if the change impacted the accuracy, I couldnt tell.
That 28 Nosler is a smoker, go for it!

Fink what did you put on top of yours. I was looking at the leupold vx-3i lrp 4.5-14x50 30mm , I normally dont shoot more than 14 power but would more be better with this caliber, not that Im gonna be shooting at critters 6 or 7 hundred yards away just wondering.

I went with a Viper PST 3-15x44.
You might not shoot at critters from 6-700 yards away, but it would be fun to ring steel from distance.

I wish they made lefty’s in larger calibers
They just added 6.5 PRC, 300 win mag, 300PRC and 28 Nosler to their left handed options in both the Mesa and Ridgeline...... Which makes me really sad as a Lefty. Wonder if they'd just trade me in my righty 300 for a lefty?!

Best news I’ve heard in awhile. They must not have updated their website.
