Mountain Rifle

After my latest adventure toting a scendero around the high sheep country I'm ready to buy another rifle but a few pounds lighter. Staying in the $2000 range less a scope what would be a few options in your opinions?
Thanks Jeff~

Re: Mountain Rifle

I am having very good luck with the tikka t-3 lights at 6 3/8 pounds. Mine are dead meat to 800 yards. If you are going up to $2000 range some customs could be close to your budget which would be better..

Contact Kevin Weaver, Weaver Rifles Web He would be happy to walk through some options from a full custom to buying a stock rifle and shaving some weight off it. Lots of options for $2k or under, not to mention you get a tack driver!
