I have a Browning A-Bolt that was rebarreled and accurized by Christensen Arms several years ago.
240 weatherby mag with 2 1/2# trigger w/ 26" select match grade SS Shilen bull barrel. It consistently shoots 1/4" and smaller groups at 100 meters when I do my part. It has dropped every thing I used it on within 10 yds everytime thus far using 107gr SMKs. It weighs in a 9.2#s with a Nikon Monarch X tactical scope, sling, a full magazine and 10 rounds strapped to the stock.
It is my preferred deer gun ...
I like the weight and balance of a gun with a wrapped barrel so much that I am getting ready to have 2 barrels: krieger and Bartlein carbon wrapped by ABS.
I took these barrels off from 2 recent customs that I had built for me -- just too dang heavy.
As I get older, my take is that a rifle is sort of useless for long range hunting if you can't carry it very far ... a carbon barrel gives me the ability to have long range accuracy and not have to break my back carrying it.
Lugging the extra weight may be macho for you young guys, but me ... these days, I want to be able to breath when I take my shot.
