In just about any other year, this gun would have taken top hon­ors in the test. It is an ex­cep­tion­ally ac­cu­rate ri­fle built on su­perb com­po­nents—a Bighorn Arms ac­tion, Proof car­bon-fiber bar­rel, and Proof stock—that work per­fectly to­gether. It turned in one group that mea­sured a scant .181 inch, the best of the test. This ri­fle can also switch bar­rels to run other car­tridges, thanks to the Sav­agestyle bar­rel-nut sys­tem. But this is no bench queen. It has a lively bal­ance and feel that helped it ex­cel dur­ing our field tests too. This is an all-around hunt­ing ri­fle with an as­pi­ra­tional price tag that is worth as­pir­ing to.
