Seems like lots of folks are carrying heavier rifles with a yard of scope attached by rings and rails that outweigh the average downrigger ball. Anyone here appreciate a more svelte, easy to carry, less complicated hunting rifle? You know, the kind you keep in your hands so you might actually react to a deer you bump? The same kind that doesn't make your arm go numb if you sling it? The kind you can easily crawl up on a deer with and pop him out of his bed because you wanted to see if you could? The kind where deer don't get away while you fiddle-fart with turrets and knobs and adjustable objectives because you dare to use a fixed powered scope? This guy here is 6 3/4 pounds field ready. 700 mountain rifle in 280 with a mcmillan KS stock and leupold FXII 6x36.
