SIG Cross

Been thinking about a bolt gun. Saw the SIG Cross (check YouTube) and it has my attention. $1500 retail, so street price should be lower. .308. 6.5 Creed, and SIGs military entry in 6.8 (.277 Fury) - 9ft less drop at 1000, than 6.5 Creed

Have you considered the Daniel Defense Delta? They will give you a 10% military veteran discount as well. I have been very impressed recently with DD’s products and service.

The established front-runner in this niche is the Ruger Precision Rifle, soon as I can offload some hunting rifles I no longer use, I will be getting one, the only question is 6.5 PRC, 300PRC or 338 Lapua.

The SIG looks interesting, SIG's QC has been meh for a while now, not sure I wanna be the testing dummy for this. Regardless it bears watching, you can get one and let me know how it goes S/F....Ken M

Addendum:

The 277 Fury setup with a can seems pretty slick; conceptually, I really like it. In practice, running things at 80k psi tends to wear stuff out most ricki-tic.

I'm interested in what matter of coatings they plan on using for barrels and chambers? There's a lot of plasma vapor deposited stuff that might work well, tungsten carbo-nitride and chromium nitride just off the top of my head, but the proof is in the pudding.

The steel case head ammo price-point will be a make or break issue. The up side is factory ammo only would allow them to use things like titanium dioxide case liners to increase barrel life like they do on autocannon and artillery ammunition.

Poly, hurry up and buy one so you can let us know how it works out S/F....Ken M
