I agree with the packability factor, having a sporter or heavy sporter weight barrel. Such as a Weatherby Accumark style barrel, or maybe the Browning A-Bolt II magnum barrels. They tend to be heavier and thicker than most of the other brands sporter weight barrels I've seen. The Accumark is a light-heavy or heavy sporter (somewhere in the middle of those 2), and is still packable, but heavy enough to help with stability and rigidity.
Which is why my next build is a hunting build, and will probably be a Sendero or Accumark contour barrel....Still haven't decided.
But yes, straight out of the truck, and over the hood or tailgate.....Sure, bring on the full-bull.
