Re: Why does my long range rifle have to weight 12lbs +?

this year I did a lot of backpacking hunting (getting the game out on sled or quarters)
Here is the Moose hunting, and as the cow elk i have to get him out on sled piece by piece using the heavy 338edge (15lb)
I don;t say was easy but if you let your rifle half the way your trips will be easier.
On last trip I pickup the rifle and after 9 hours we got him out.

I could used the 7rm (12kb) rifle but i choose the big 338edge (15lb) for more knock power and being more confident to have the job done at further distances. We got the moose at 800yards with 300SMK. And I'm glad I took the edge.
Every hunting trip based on terrain and game displacement will dictate what rifle you would like to get out.
