Re: Ultimate Hunting Rifle
TWF my Sendero weighs 11 lbs with a scope and bipod on it. If you get a good sling you really do not even know it is there. You can also buy a used Rifle and use the action on it. If you want a light rifle I would get a #5 from Lilja and have him put deep flutes in it. But rifle weight is over rated if you ask me. A lot of guys think you need to have a 5lbs rifle to pack in places and that is simply not true. Most people that say that never take the time to carry their heavier rifle before the hunt. If you do not want to flute your rifle then go with a #4 contour. I would also stay away from the 7mm or 30 cal Lazz and 7mm and 300 Ultra mag cartridges. They are way over rated if you ask me for how much more powder you have to burn to get the 150 to 200 fps over a standard. No offense to anyone with a Ultra or Lazz I have a 300 Ultra in my gun safe but the truth is the truth.

Fast, Flat, and Accurate
