Just curious what your 270AM carry rifle weighs with the scope on it?

I had Kirby build me a 270 AM on a 30"+brake, #7 fluted Lilja barrel, A-5 Mcmillan stock. If I had it to do over I would have him build it in one of his light sporter styles. Don't get me wrong it is a great gun and a shooting machine, but it weighs 13+ pounds and I am not likely to carry it to some places. No problem, he is builing me a 26" #4 fluted 7MM Dakota that should fill the carrying rifle niche just fine.

Depending on what stock and action you choose you can get it in under a year according to what he told me on my Dakota and I just sent him the money to get started week before last.

You might PM Lerch on here or look at some old posts, I believe he may have just the rifle you are looking at. His has a 27" barrel and is a nice looking rig.

Kirby also hunts with a light weight 7 AM that might be close to what you are talking about. Great smith, great calibers and most of all a great guy. Good Luck.
