rifle is more accurate than i am. it's heavy, weighting just shy of 16 pounds, but this isn't exactly a rifle you're gonna take hunting either. has an AI magazine that holds 5 rounds, but you can load the weapon with 6 if you chamber a round first. top rails can be removed with simple tools too. the bolt and action are very smooth and chambers without a hitch. had problems with hornady brass in this, literally having to beat out empties with a cleaning rod and hammer, but lapua brass has no problems what-so-ever. recoil is very mild, comparable to a 308. if you're after a semi-custom extreme long range rifle without spending a small fortune, this is by far the best way to go.
