This sounds like an awesome set up! How much does a light weight weatherby cost?

It was around $900 in 2000.
It's a 6 lug bolt, not a Howa action.
Weighs 5 3/4 pounds stripped. No rings, scope.
Easy to carry and plenty of accuracy. I've made a few spectacular LR hits on coyotes that were leaving after their buddy died.
It's a great calling rifle and can do double duty on incidental lions that show up, one of the reasons I chose the caliber.

However, the caliber strictions changed. .22 center fires are legal this year in WY for antelope, deer, lions and wolves.

Man that sounds like a spectacular rig. I just got a Browning BAR in 243. I like it but haven't found a factory load it likes to shoot. I bought it just for calling coyotes. Of course I live in southern ohio just minutes from Kentucky and West Virginia there's a lot of thick cover so the quick follow ups are there. Nothing like a sleek light weight rifle to pack. Makes hunting that much more pleasant.

It's a great rig for the west but too much magnification on the top end for your terrain, I would think.

Definitely. Around here a 3-9 is great but honestly you can get by with a fixed 4 or 6.
