Which caliber are you considering? I like a fully adjustable chassis and for the price, the PCR should be a good value out of the box. I would probably choose 6.5 Creedmore these days. I guess part of this is going to be, what will your main purpose be for the rifle? Those type chassis, don't ride bags well but it a quality bipod it could be stable. Personally I am not into the Russian Rifling, but many tactical shooters are. I have yet to see a 5R barrel on a 1,000 yard custom rifle. I have a friend with the Ruger version, which shoots very well.
