Although I have yet to see pricing for this rifle, if it indeed is entry level pricing with a 1 MOA guarantee this will be one popular rifle and will give Weatherby with their 1.5 MOA guarantee a run for their money (no doubt being popular with folks who cannot shoot MOA anyway).
I expect a short action will be announced within a year.
