    I have a deposit on one of these, but it's been awfully quiet on when they will deliver. In the meantime I've looked at exactly what you're talking about because I'm impatient.

    The truth is, getting a stainless Tikka with a threaded muzzle in .300WM ($1,700) mounted into something of a similar weight and design like a MDT HNT26 chassis ($1950), and you're getting well into the high $3,000s. The Cross Magnum is $3850. Add a few more things like a compatible AICS magazine and decent muzzle device and you're basically spending the same money.

    Not denying that the Tikka will probably be more accurate out of the box, but to try and build something with off the shelf parts that does the same thing isn't going to be that much cheaper.

    I'm a huge fan of the platform. Have the 6.5 and the .308. Really like the idea of the 300WM in more or less the same livery.

    I picked up the 308 version not long ago from a retailer. Was well under half the $4k mark. Why would the 300WM be double? I don't understand the $4k price tag.
