    There were only about 200 imported into the USA, in .308 Win and 7.5 Swiss.

    Having owned a Steyr SSG 69, about 6 other Steyr Mannlichers, including several currently ( one .308) and a Steyr air pistol, I bet this 300 meter match rifle shoots well enough for the very top shooters in the world to not be handicapped by using it. The diopter sights on it have been around for a while, and are perfect.

    If you are talking about the Steyr CISM a friend of mine has one and he's quite fond of it. He doesn't really use it for what it was intended for because he uses it for informal shooting right out to 1000+ yards it gets there obviously. However I believe that in competition this is really intended as a short range rifle (300m UIT) and not particularly suited to compete competitively at long range where a longer barrel would come into its own.
    His cism is the only one that I have ever come across so the model can't be that popular in this country but then 300m UIT isn't particularly popular in this country.

    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    Once you have owned a steyr SSG 69, you tend to be biased toward anything with Steyr in it's name, whether you have used them or not, I would say.

    The SSG 69 is a great rifle, but so was my 6.5x54 carbine. And my 1952 rile in .30-06 is super accurate.

    As others have said above, the 300M rifle is certainly very accurate, but not designed for 1,000 yards, which takes a pretty specialized rifle, and .308 is a bit marginal for that range. And I don't know what you are thinking of at that range, but this is not a bench rifle. It is made for position shooting, especially offhand. A comparable rifle would be the Tikka 595 Sporter and the SIG Sauer SSG 3000 in the right stock.
