    Had one for two years good workhorse rifle shot well out of the box using Norma ammo 120 gr bt not used anything else as I have a 308 pro hunter too .plenty of knockers out there regarding the stock, safety ,sweated barrel Ect ,but they do what they say on the box .i am having a stock made for the 308 so they can be replaced folks tell me they can be rebarrelled and as for the safety I think it's sweet . Plenty of deer would testify if theycould talk but they are dead !

    ​Ps the 6.5 is so sweet a round love it .

    I have the pro hunter stainless in 308. Accurate, easy to maintain. Has been my main rifle for deer and range work for a number of years now. The only issue I had with it was using an over the barrel mod (T8) when the accuracy would go out after 5/6 rounds on the range. I believe this was caused by heat build up causing a change in the tightness where the mod touched the barrel changing the POA. Fixed by replacing the mod with a different type.

    I've got one in .243 and can't fault it. The trigger is fantastic and I've never bad a problem with the stock. I am so pleased with it I've have brought the same rifle but in the shorter barreled mountain version in .270. I've also had no problems with the t8 mod either.
