I can clearly see the extraction and feeding issues in this video and other videos uploaded from him.

No one else has mentioned anything negative about this rifle to my knowledge.

Does anyone have one?

Maybe I will buy another Howa in 6.5cm and get the MDT ACC chassis for it.

Thoughts?

Not a modern one. I have had a Savage 110FP rifle for almost 30 years and had no issues with it at all. However one could also say that about older rifles from most manufacturers. You only have to look at QC issues the last few years from Remington to see that. That said, it was my understanding that Savage were a little less guilty of this than some. So this does come as a bit of a surprise.

We have a mod 12 F/TR (rebarrelled in 6.5x47), and the bolt is as floppy as a turd in a top hat............but it feeds and shoots really well.
'Er indoors did a 10 shot 0.47 MOA group at 300yds with it the first day back at Bisley on the 30th..........(I loaded the ammo ;) )

Instead of another howa, maybe Tikka T3X with MDT ACC stock.

Does anyone know which Tikka T3X variant has the heaviest barrel in 6.5cm screw cut.
