Christensen Arms MPR
• $2,295 • 6.5 Creedmoor • 8 lb. 1 oz. • 22-in. barrel
In a field of exceptionally accurate rifles, one had to lead the pack, and this Christensen Arms rifle was it. It shot every 6.5 Creedmoor factory load well, and when we tallied the results, its average 5-shot group was .557 inch, with loads from Norma, Barnes, and Hornady in the .4s. This sleek black rifle sports lots of carbon fiber and has a sexy, sci-fi look that the team really liked. The folding stock is a great touch, as is the ultra-crisp Diamondtech trigger. Some testers found the stock a bit too slick during some of the field drills, and inconsistent ejection cost the rifle a few points.
