I think it's the squishy stock and squishy recoil pad, but it's accurate and once I had it gone through very reliable. Though my BDL in 270 needed zero work and has been utterly reliable and a tack driver out of the box. Remington doesn't make them like that anymore. My other DG rifle is a CZ 550 in 500 Jeffery. It's a tank, weighs 12 lbs with scope.
