Re: Help Light Weight .300WSM

I have a savage in 300 wsm I restocked it with a B C Stock
and had a muzzle brake installed. I put a vx 3 with the Boon and crocket retitle in it.
the gun shoots great out to 500 yards(thats the limit on the reticle)
I would not do another WSM I can only get two rounds in the mag
If I was going to do another light gun I would do a remington CDL

Is the Sako A7 the same action as the Finnlight, just a different (cheaper) stock? I looked at the Win 70 extreme weather. It looks real nice and Mod 70 like Rem 700 have plenty custom after market options... Stocks, gunsmiths, parts

No the action is very similar to the T3 action. Has a floated hammer forged barrel, all sako/tikka actions are known for accuracy. I know the two I have are quality rifles. IMHO they are the best bang for the buck rifles made.

Re: Help Light Weight .300WSM

you might check this guy out. His prices on his available rifles page are really surprising for custom. I'm going to try one I think in 7WSM

I like my t3 in 300 win mag. With burriss ffII it weighs in at 7#'s 3 oz. Shoots great.

Re: Help Light Weight .300WSM

I think light weapon and the 300wsm are not compatible. I wore out my savage factory stock in 1.5 years from the recoil, maybe 100-120 rounds. She is bedded in a B&C medalist with full aluminum, now. But to plan to make the gun a 6-6.5# platform for mountain hunting seems too light. She is going to kick like a mule and you would be lucky to see what your shot did through any scope. Follow up would be poor at best. 300wsm is flat and carries power, but is it necessary for this type of hunt?

Re: Help Light Weight .300WSM

I have one in a Rem. 700 CDL.It has the 26" barrel.For me it seems light enough.If you want to go lighter,the Rem. Mod 7 has a 22" barrel.Don's Hobby Guns has one listed for $629.I've bought a couple of rifles from him and he's been good to deal with and has some great prices on guns.Check him out on the web,it could save you hundreds or cost you hundreds if you're tempted.
