I just bought one in 7mm Mag for $349. It was won on a gun ticket and never shot. I put a Nikon Buckmaster on it and shot it for the first time yesterday. With the first load I tried, 150gr NBT over H4831, it shot two, 3 shot groups, just under 3/4" at 100yards. I moved out to 200 and shot a 1.25" 3 shot group. I had a hard time seeing the one inch square at 200. I also had targets set at 300 and 500 yards. It was getting dark and I only fired one shot at each of these targets using the BDC circles. At 300, my shot was dead center but 3.5 inches low. My shot at 500 was dead center but 4.5" low (just about 1 moa off at each distance). It really helped that there was no wind. I have a couple other loads to try but I'm really satisfied so far. My only complaint is the trigger is made of plastic but mine breaks with very little take up and no let off. I haven't tried to adjust it yet but it feels to be around 3.5 - 4lbs.
