    I thought that was a rhetorical question

    Absolute steal. It'll be worth double when you sell it.

    What advantage does the carbon wrapped barrel really give you? Weight reduction will be extremely minimal I think.

    Buy a Tikka and fit a CF stock of your choice, hardy uses Kiwi composites I think, or after what I've seen recently I'd seriously look at Ken Hendersons stocks.

    I reckon you would get a better return on that investment if you spent the cash on hookers and blow.

    WAY better stories than "yeah, I own a tikka. BUT its got a CF barrel and shit....."

    I would do some serious research before spending my hard earned money on something with an HRE barrel on it...

    You are being a bit tough on Dan.

    On Saturday I fired at Brad's hill-side 12 times with an HRE stainless barrelled rifle and didn't miss it once. You could see the great big holes in the dirt.
