Gun to pack with
I've been packing in my solo camp from our main camp at 8000 up to 10,000 ft. with enough gear for a two day hunt and carrying my 300 win mag, rem 700, with a Leupold 4.5-14x40 and a bipod. I love the gun but the older I get the heavier it gets. The next time I pack in for Mule deer I'll be using my Tikka T3 Light 25-06 with another Leupold. With the Berger 115 VLD it shoots long and flat. This saves me 3 lbs. Good luck.
