I am not new to long range hunting. I have several very accurate 1K rifles.
Here is my problem. I have been stricken with a rare neuromuscular disease. Around twelve pounds is the maximum weight rifle I can handle now. The rifle will be used 80% for long rage hunting of varmints and medium big game plus hogs. About 20% for F-Class shooting. I am looking for maximum power versus weight ratio with recoil being a small factor. I manly want 1K accuracy.
At this time I am thinking Rem 700 short action. Shilen Match barrel in varmint profile. Stock will be H-S precision PST60A because I love thumb holes.
For caliber I am leaning towards the 7mm SRUM.
The rifle will be built by Glen Pearce. He has built all of my guns.
Please feel free to add your input on any are all of the choices I have made. This will be my last custom rifle
. I won't to get it right.
Though I don't post much here. I have the highest regards for the experience here.
Thank you for you're time.
