If I can get the pic on here, it will give you an idea of a rifle that is probably close to what you want.
It is one of my carry in ridge guns when we back pack into the mountains. The rife is chambered in the 7/300 Weatherby, has a 29" Shilen stainless barrel, a 6 1/2X to 20X Leupold, has a standard Remington stock with a fore end extension and has a 721 remington action with Sako extractor and a bi-pod. The rifle weighs as pictured 11 Lbs. Without the bipod it's 10 lbs.
I know for a fact, it will kill at 1250 Yards.
I would have liked the 6.5/300 Weatherby just as much or more in this setup. I just wanted to see what the 7/300 would do in a light gun. It does have a lot of recoil and should have a brake on it. The 6.5/300 would have been a little better in that department.
Just wanted to show you a light longrange rifle.
Hope I can get the pic on here.
