There is also the distinction between BR shooting at game -vs- hunting..

Yes. An important distinction for sure. My Sendero has only been in my hands for 3 weeks, but it will *always* be a 'hunting' rig. Definitely not a BR rig, in the field or not. My desire was to build a rig that was in the 10-10.5 lbs range. I wanted a new rig that I could feel as comfortable carrying as I would shooting out to extreme (for me, 700+ yds) long distance.

Everything has a trade off, though. I pay my debt with my shoulder.

6.5x57AI on a M98.
~8lbs nekkid.
9.5 lbs fully dressed.

.270W on M700
7lbs nekkid.

Both weigh roughly 10 lbs more at 5:00PM than they do @5:00AM. ;)
