Your perfect all around carry rifle?

What is your idea of a perfect lightweight carry hunting rifle.
Caliber? Weight? Action? Barrel maker? Length? Contour?
Stock? Trigger? Magizine? Mounts? Scope?

Or factory rifles?

Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (where the shot goes, how big the group is, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.

Re: Your perfect all around carry rifle?

It would have to be my Cooper 520 Signature, 6.5x284, #6(.75" at muzzle) fluted barrel, 26" with brake, tally 1 piece mts, 3 shot clip, Jackson Hunter stock. Huskemaw BD,5x20, Flatline level, Harris 9-13" bipod, weight 10.5#

My Savage LRH with the same, set- up and caliber coming in at the same weight is an alternative at much lower cost in a standard factory rifle.

Both rifle are effective to 1000 yards or a little more and deliver .25-.5 MOA 3 shot groups tested at 500 yards.

CZ 550 kevlar, 270win, Talley, Leupy 4.5x14. Cheap(cheaper than a custom anyway), tough, light, iron sights just in case, doesn't care what you feed it.
