Wow!!! That’s a Real CSI think I am sold on these, now. Not sure if I want to spend an extra $1k for the Element, but pretty sure I'm gonna order either the Element or the PH2.
Love that pic. Thanks for sharing.I have ran a PH1 in 6 Creed in PRS matches for the last two years. I have just under 3,000 rounds on the rifle, just under 1500 rounds into each of two barrels. As a light hunting rifle, it’s fantastic. Not the best choice in factory form for a competition rifle, but it worked well enough - works much better now with a heavier barrel. I rebarreled to a Bartlein Heavy Palma, changed the trigger to a Jewel HVR, added a cheek riser and an Area419 Arcalock rail. It was about a half MOA rifle with the factory Rock Creek barrel, and was a 1/4moa rifle with the new Bartlein - new Bartlein going on it after deer season in a couple of weeks. It’s priced exceptionally well as a complete rifle considering the components used - the action can only be valued at about $250 when considering the street prices against street prices for all of the parts.
I’m planning to buy another Havak in 300 PRC in the Spring, meant only for hunting.

What did you think of the element ? Is the action smooth, is it balanced ?I wanted one, but I hate fluted barrels. You can get one in a non fluted barrels through their custom shop, but bottom dollar through custom shop for a gun is $3500. I held one of the elements...those things are light
There is a new VX5HD 7-35Thanks for the comments. I am 90% sold on one.
Decision 1, what rifle: check
Decision 2, which model: ugh... PH2 or Element?
Decision 3, what cartridge: ugh... 6.5 PRC?
Decision 4, optics: probably Leupold Mark 5
Almost as frustrating as buying a new truck.
I have one in a 300WM and it's shooting factory Barnes TTSX 190gr at 500yds lights out. I'm really happy with it. What problems are you, and the others experiencing?I have one in 300 WM, wouldn’t recommend one in that chambering. First one was a lemon and warrantied, second one hasn’t won me over yet but is doing a bit better. There are a number of others with less than satisfied experiences with 300 WM on the Havak thread on snipershide too.
here is the warranty ticket on the first one:I have one in a 300WM and it's shooting factory Barnes TTSX 190gr at 500yds lights out. I'm really happy with it. What problems are you, and the others experiencing?
