I was looking at the Compass. Recently picked up a Ruger American Predator in 6.5CM. Both platforms, especially in decent aftermarket stocks, are quite the shooters for not a lot of $$$.

Here is a picture of me sighting in my Compass (6.5CM) @ 100yds- with the cheapest ammo I could find. (Group #1 wasn't on paper and I over compensated with group #2) The sloppy bolt is easily over looked. This trigger mod makes it quite acceptable. For the price, they are damn fine rifles.
There is currently a $75 mail in rebate, so they can be had for $200 right now.

I ordered the hunter spring and it was very similar to the stock spring. It almost felt heavier. I will be ordering the target trigger to see if it is any better. Maybe I just got a tighter than normal spring.

All the reviews I read were positive with one caveat, the forend of the stock is flimsy. And it is. The observation was slinging up or loading up the bipod could loosen groups or change POI.

I am taking mine in Win 308 on its maiden range trip tomorrow. Got it as a good utilitarian hunting rifle. Redfield scope on top of it. I don’t use a bipod and only on occasion use a sling to shoot a sporting rifle. I guess we’ll see what happens with the sling.
