I like White Oak because I've met the owner, John Holliger and his family out at Perry a number of times and they've always been very nice and really great to deal with over the years.

Incidentally I shot an RRA A2 at SAFS for my cherry leg points several years ago now and I really liked that rifle. The only thing I can say negatively about it is that the RRA NM trigger sometimes has a way of becoming a single stage from wear and tear after several thousand rounds so a good quality trigger is a must in whatever rifle you have. There are a lot of options out there but the standard seems to be either the Geissele or the Wisconsin M-K II. There is a way to make the LaRue MBT trigger suitable for XTC which is what I'm using now but that's a different discussion.

Anyway, hope this helps.
Thank you, yes very helpful. Amazing how you can always be learning in this hobby.
