Re: Long Range Hunting Gun Weight
My favorite LR hunting rig is set up for shots from 50-1000 yards. I'm predominately a deer, antelope, and coyote hunter. I can stretch it another 100-200 yards effectively for a shot at a coyote if the opportunity arises. I do s combination of mostly stand, but a fair amount of walking and stalking. It weighs in at about 12 pounds. I like a barrel at least .75" at the muzzle and a length of 26". Gives me enough LR weight/stability for my 6.5-284, and is the limit for me to make a steady off hand shot on those rare occasions.
