In this episode of TFBTV, James Reeves brings the Springfield Armory Model 2020 Waypoint to Thunder Ranch's famous Counter Sniper Course to put it through its paces and see if it performs as advertised. This gun is the newest bolt-action rifle from Springfield and it available in a number of configurations. Springfield's description is as follows:
"Precision manufactured in the USA, each Model 2020 is built to deliver the accuracy and performance expected from a custom grade rifle. The Model 2020 Waypoint features a premium carbon fiber stock and the option of a steel or carbon fiber barrel with an impressive .75 MOA accuracy guarantee.
Accuracy and performance begin with the all new Model 2020 action. Precision manufactured from premium materials, each Model 2020 action is the foundation for success and is designed to take advantage of today’s most advanced production techniques. Dual locking lugs on the fluted bolt run smoothly down EDM raceways for perfect, repeatable engagement while an optimized extraction cam provides robust, reliable extraction in any condition. Additionally, the bolt features dual cocking cams for ease of operation and toolless disassembly for maintenance."

      @TFB TV Man I always be your content! Thanks Man.! You always give me the confidence with my rifles etc. I feel a lot more comfortable when I go to the range or my buddies land.! I didn't serve but I did get to train a lite with Marines and my brother is a Marine but for some reason I've been really good at being a Marksman without the extensive level of training, but I always come back to your videos for more info and guidance! Hope to one day get on the range with you so I can further more learn off of you.!🙏🏽💯💪🏽 Thank You for the content!

    I hate to bust y’all bubble, BUT...1” ain’t great for a $1700 rifle! I can do just under an inch with my $350 Savage Axis II with PMC Bronze .308 and it came with a 3-9 Bushnell. And yeah, my cheap mag hangs on the last round too. It it was $350.

    If I see another video of a silenced gun with sub-sonic ammo, I'm going to vomit! Everybody wants to be the guy that picks off the drug dealer's security guards one by one, AND NOBODY IS EVER GOING TO DO THAT! When I hunt, I want POWER and VELOCITY. The same goes for home defense. I don't want a pip squeak bullet with puny energy for either application. I don't give a damn who hears it!

    As I was watching 👀 your YouTube video, I was really surprised and felt proud as a U.S. Marine vet to see my Squadron patch on the woman's coat @2:11 in the video. I Was in HMLA-367 "SCARFACE" from 1996 -2013 & I deployed to several tours to the big sandbox. I will forever remember the Marines I had the honor serve with while there. It was a privilege to be in such an honorable command, everything I learned at SCARFACE (HMLA-367) made my life easy. Could you please tell this women it made my day when I saw my Squadron patch. From SSGT Moore I salute y'all... HOOO-FRIGGIN-RRRRAAAAHHHH!!!

    You can get a Christensen Ridgeline in 6.5 Creedmoor for roughly $1800 with a carbon fiber barrel and trigger tech trigger at 6.3lbs. You can add an AICS pattern bottom metal for $250. You get a 0.5 MOA guarantee. And it's still less money than the Waypoint and just as good if not a better gun. Not sure what target demographic Springfield was looking for here...

    • Gs Xr

      No it's not cheaper to modify a Ridgeline to have the features the Waypoint comes with from the factory you're on dope if you think the two rifles are even in the same league. The Ridgelines MSRP is $1995 and the Waypoint is $2275 for the non adjustable stock and $2500 for the adjustable of course street prices of each will be lower especially once the Waypoint has been out a while. By the time you're done adding bottom metal to the Ridgeline you're going to be around the same price as the non adjustable Waypoint. Also the Ridgeline doesn't have a 1/2 MOA guarantee it has a 1 MOA guarantee because Christensen only gives a 1/2 MOA guarantee on rifles with a trued receiver like the TFM or Summit TI which they charge $5,400 & $4900 for. Even then Christensen is only trueing the reciever face but the Waypoint comes with a completely blueprinted action meaning the entire reciever is trued not just the face. The Waypoint's stock is also much nicer than the Ridgelines it has sling swivels vs outdated sling studs and IMO a completely awesome looking paint job that gives the Waypoint a custom rifle look vs the cheap paint job on the Ridgeline. The Waypoint also has a cerecoated reciever vs bare stainless on the Christensen. In order to make a Ridgeline as good as a Waypoint you'd have to buy bottom metal ($150) have a gunsmith mill out your stock to fit it then have them mill in sling swivels ($50) have a custom paint job done to the stock ($200), then have the gunsmith remove your barrel and true your action ($250) then cerecoat the action ($100) and reinstall & headspace your barrel ($100+ in labor) it would probably cost you $1000 all said and done and most gunsmiths who specialize in and are known for that kind of work are usually booked out 3-6 months during normal times in the firearms industry which these aren't. Again a Ridgeline and a Waypoint aren't in the same league, not even close.

      GTFO with your BS comment like a Bergara, Howa or Savage are in the same league as the Waypoint or even close put down the crack pipe. Proof Research's Elevation MTR has an MSRP of $3200 and while it comes with a Big Horn action the stock doesn't have a custom paint job it has sling swivels instead of qd flush cups the comb isn't adjustable it doesn't come with a brake and the rifle has a $700 higher MSRP. The closest Masterpiece arms offers is an Ultra lite carbon fibered barrel hunter rifle that has an MSRP of $3500-$3650.

    It's a nice rifle, but I'd go with a Bergara B14 HMR for half the price and it's just as accurate if not more. The HMR comes with an adjustable stock out of the box. Yes it's heavier, but id rather carry a few more pounds and put the more than $1,000 savings and buy nice glass.
