Additional calibers include 7 mm Rem. Mag. and other popular magnum choices.

Despite the kick of magnum chamberings, the platform doesn't recoil much at all, even without a muzzle brake. It was stellar on targets at 600 and 800 yards in 7 mm Rem. Mag., and its burnt bronze finish is quite appealing. MSRP is $4,000, give or take based on the caliber. There's also a .308 Win. version with an 18-inch barrel that weighs less than 9 pounds.
