I hear ya. I bought it with every intention of getting a 300wsm barrel, and keeping it in 300wsm for hunting. I have the 22in 6.5cm along with this 16 308. I've been using the 308 as just a fun range shooter as I have lots of 308 ammo and reloading components to support shooting habbits.
The prospect of a .300 wsm was THE selling point for me. I hope Q is still on it. Once the mag bolt head is out I’d like to play with the idea of a 7mm Sherman short mag as well.
