It is nice but I had no idea they were going for that kind of money.

I had a friend who had one and I always liked it.

i wonder why the MRI has this statement:

"This rifle is designed to shoot 40 grain and 50 grain ammo ONLY. Firing 30 grain ammo will void the warranty."

not enough "oomph" to reliably cycle the action ?

Interesting. I can see ammo with lighter bullets causing a function problem but why would it "void the warranty". Maybe too much recoil energy?

I don't understand how a lighter bullet will have more recoil energy.

If you shot ammo with 30 grain bullets, how would they ever know?

I should have said recoil velocity.

I would like to know the reason.

just called magnum research technical department, they say the 30 grain actually has higher pressures than the higher weight bullets. this issue creates hard cycling. ruger had the same problems in their 10-22 mags

MRI has a gas release to deal with the higher pressures but still says it will void the warranty. nice fellow to talk to.
