The pack rifle I have used for years is a A-Bolt Micro Medallion 7mm-08 it weighs less than 5.5 lbs & has vanquished many Elk, Mule Deer, & Black Bear over the years!!

Re: Caliber Choice for pack rifle

Nothing wrong with what you have. Maybe some hand loads if you want better accuracy.
If you want something different, consider the 280 AI. Loaded with a 160 gr AB to 3000 fps, you have 7mm RM performance in a light package with 5 round capacity.
You can also shoot 280 Rem factory loads.
