Thanks for the detailed, concise, review! I'm a big fan of GT based on accuracy and perceived performance based on bullet design and cross sections. Glad to see actual results that demonstrate the designs inclination to tumble. Now, if they'll just import their 5.45x39 ammo again...

What does that particular rifle weigh with the magazine fully loaded?
