i have been a lurker for quite some time and appreciate all the advice on this site, thanks!
so here is what i got going. i want to build a LIGHT weight rifle that will do it all. from antelope to moose, geared toward my dall sheep hunt next fall. kinda leaning toward the 300wsm. this is all very new to me and thought this would be the best place to ask for advice.
thinking of a model 7 short action? will this be light enough? or are there lighter or maybe not lighter but a better choice?
thinking of the lonewolf summit xl stock, pretty sure that is what i was looking at. maybe others are recommeded?
now the barrel is where i got the real questions...my thoughts were a #3 fluted hart. can i get a lighter contour and still flute it? at what point am i going to be scarificing accuarcy? what about length and twist for a 180 grain bullet? any other recommendations???
so many things to think about!!
will probably be selling my .338RUM XCR to fund a portion of this build.
thanks in advance guys!!!
