Re: Help me choose an Allen Magnum

An Allen Magazine Rifle with a NXS scope is heavy, so if you ordinarily lead a more or less sedentary life, be sure you start a vigorous work-out program weeks before you take it afield, even for a flat-land hunt.

That's what I'm engaged in right now.

I'm used to carrying around a Weatherby with a Leopold Scope. How heavy is heavy?

Re: Help me choose an Allen Magnum

How heavy is heavy? anything above 14 Lbs is heavy. 16 lbs is the upper limit for Idaho big game hunting. The APS rig on the way will run considerably above that limit. My 270 AM runs 12 lbs w/a Ziess Conquest scope and bipod. Marginal weight on the high side for trudging around the mtns but definitely doable.
