You should also look at the Howa and Savage. With a chassis also.
Savage has a $150 rebate. Just picked up a 6.5 Creedmore.

I like my MVP Varmint, but I couldn't see myself paying that much for one no matter which stock it's in.

I have had a total of three of these, and sold all of them. They are extremely accurate and I love that they take ar15 mags, but...

IMHO, the bolt is a mess. I realize it was designed to be sloppy, and it's really sloppy. You have to be very forceful when loading a round. If you really want a good bang for the buck, look at the Howa 1500. Action is very slick and sub MOA.

That's a very good price since it includes the scope, but I wonder how good the trigger is? I would handle one first before ordering one. The Mossberg may not have a lot of aftermarket support to replace the trigger, if that's important to you.

I have a Ruger Precision Rifle (RPR) in 556 and it's a fun accurate shooter. The trigger is very good for it being stock. The rifle gives me the chance to shoot cheap 556 or step it up and shoot 223. Way cheaper than shooting my 308.

That's some good info, can't go wrong with Timney.

On GunBroker the scope is approx $550-$600 without the scope rings. Buds also includes a bipod. For everything that is included, that's a tough price to beat.

Have you run into any problems with piercing primers on reloads? I have a MVP varmint and used CCI 400 and popped primers before I hit any real pressure... gonna try SR magnum for the thicker cups.

No, I've been using Remington 7 1/2 BR and CCI BR-4 primers.

I almost bought this gun in 6.5cm but someone talked me out of it at the last minute. I tried everything under the sun to get a similar lightweight chassis build and found the Savage 10 BA stealth. Great gun at a great price with the rebate going. Definitely recommend if you want a light chassis gun otherwise go Tikka t3x or Howa 1500. Good luck.

About 2 months ago I bought an MVP flex in 223. Thankfully I purchased through gallery of guns.

Despite the pictures in mossberg’s website and despite their description, the flash suppressor was not installed on the rifle. It’s a bolt so featureless or whatever doesn’t matter. And it’s a bolt so it can’t be classified AW or whatever.

And further, the flash suppressor was not even in the box. But I figured I could deal with that later. My sons were so itching for a bolt 223 and they were so pumped to shoot this thing.

Took it out to be range and it didn’t shoot. I know, bolt rifles are a new fangled technology and have not been battle tested and have no history of usage. Why I should take a chance on such a bleeding edge design I’ve no idea. But I did. I thought a bolt rifle would be fun to shoot.

So I send it back to mossberg. I include in the instructions to please install the flash suppressor as well as fix the rifle so it shoots.

They send it back. One, the flash suppressor is in the box but not installed. Two, took it to the range and it doesn’t shoot. Yeah, I know, untested design. What’s next, polymer pistols??? Nah, that will NEVER happen.

So it doesn’t shoot out of the box. It doesn’t shoot after mossberg “fixed” it. And they couldn’t even figure how to install a flash suppressor at the factory as it appears on their website or even at their service center. I know, flash suppressors, brand new gadget. Who uses those, huh??

I called their so called customer service. Talk about people who have no clue. Guy tried to tell me that the picture and description in their website are in error and misleading. That they just send them in the box and expect customers to install it. Because, yeah, your customers are also amateur gunsmiths and have the tools and equipment and know how to do that. Or have to buy your rifle and then pay a gunsmith to install it. Good thinking there fellas.

Thankfully GoG has their warranty. I sent the POS back to them and got a ruger American compact 223 (also got a predator in 308). That thing shoots great. Not a problem with it at all. In fact it’s a great shooter.

My advice is stay away from mossberg unless you need a cheap serviceable pump shotgun. Their customer service sux ballz. Sad because it looked like such a promising gun. But, until someone can develop a better design for a bolt rifle stay away from them. I did hear there’s these brothers in Germany that have a design in the works. Might be something to keep your eye on.

For that money buy the ruger precision or howa chassis. Or savage.

I have a Mossberg MVP (2.23/5.56) and Mossberg Patriot in .243. Terrific values and good-to-go out of the box. While I don't see the value in the OPs choice regarding chassis, trigger, barrel, bolt - it's all good.

I have the MVP Varmint with a 24" barrel - accurate, reliable, relatively cheap, and a good companion with an AR.
Its still a Value rifle, so spending that much youre putting it into a category where you should spend that money on higher tier rifle.
