If it's for hunting, you probably don't want a NM rifle. They are heavy. Also, if you might use this rifle for hunting stuff larger than a coyote, you might want to go for a 6.8 spc II or 6.5 Grendal. Some states won't let you hunt big game with anything smaller than .243/6mm.

Now if you are going to compete in matches, then RRA is a good rifle for the money... I've owned a RRA A2 upper and it did everything I could want...reliably. White Oak and Compass lake are also very fine match rifles, but probably tad more spendy.

You really should decide what the main purpose of this rifle will be before shelling out for it though. Now that both the NRA and the CMP have started to allow optics (and other options for service rifle competitions), make sure your optic of choice doesn't exceed 4.5 power if you plan to shoot in any of those matches with this rifle. Also, trigger weight must be 4.5# or higher.

Thanks from Dsc

Thanks everyone. I guess for the cash and return the RRA is the way to go. Tflorman , thanks for the good info but if I'd take it hunting it wouldn't be for anything bigger than a yote. And I agree for a longer shot I would rather be using a .243. Been there done that. After hunting a lot of North American game from moose to chipmunks I hope the herd of poeple that think their AR's are the S..T don't take them deer hunting this fall here in PA. No offense to anyone. IMHO the .223 just isn't enough cartridge for reliably killing a deer. I know some do it but you can also kill an elephant with a .303 with a perfect shot. Dan
