Re: Help with long range caliber and rifle please
Couple things here, some have already mentioned. First, your scope system is 5 1/2# ? What kind of tank is that? A lot of weight is right there. Eleven pounds shouldn't be too bad.
Second, the comment on handloading is right. If you are on a budget and are considering custom ammo, they are mutually exclusive. You will spend as much in a short time on ammo as you would on equipment. With the equipment, at least you have something durable to keep.
The suggestions on lightening you 7mag are good. It will do the job. I am not familiar with the stock on the LSS, I believe it is laminate. A good glass stock will do wonders.
Let us know what you do and how it works.
I think, therefore I am, conservative.
