Finally got the paperwork sorted and have the SSG'04 in hand. Its a handsome rifle. I have only had a chance to zero it and try a limited number of rounds (30 total) through it. Initial feelings are favourable: I like the trigger pull (no idea what the weight is, but I would guess 3-4lbs), I like the shooting position with my Leupold 3-9 MR/T scope on medium mounts, I like the effects of the muzzle-break (although no-one else at the range appeared to appreciate it!). It shot slightly under 1" groups with RG 155gn Small Mark ammo (Palma Match), and about the same with a 168gn BTHP reload. Have not chrono'd anything through it yet. It seems to suit me, though, and I look forward to shooting it more, and developing a load specifically for it. Its not too heavy to shoot "off-hand" if necessary, and I could carry it all day if I had to. I like it.
