Ric,
That sling is called the X-Cellerator and it is at:

Don't know about the other slings they show but the X-cellerators we have are very good, have used them a bunch. Come with good steel swivels.

Re: Hunting with tactical rifle?

ABSOLUTELY!!!! Hunting with a Tac rifle is the ONLY way to hunt. I carried my AI on a biathalon sling for up to 20 miles a day of hiking for a week hunting elk in October and never even knew it was there. Weighs about 17 lbs with scope and full mag. I think the secret was the biathalon sling. I spent two week this summer carrying a 50# pack in the high-sierra's, so a 17# rifle was nuthin.

This is the one I use on a regular basis, and YES, I shoot deer with MatchKings from this rifle...

sr90--
I have actually never weighed the thing, but I'm guessing it is around 17#. It is a .308 Win. with a 28" Pac-Nor NBRSA HV taper barrel, 1:11"tw/4 groove, McMillan A2 w/ heavy fill, and all steel NF rings and bases. It's pretty heavy, but I love it on the long shots off the bipod. BTW, nice Robar!
