hiking the steep terrain of colorado, i use a winchester 300 wsm
factory classic, with tally one piece ring/bases, a straight luppy 6x, in a mcmillan edge ultralight weight stock.
at 47 other guns are getting heavy, don't know the weight of this one, but i can carry it all day and not want to leave up top, waiting for me the next day. it shoots 150 tsx's molly'd, over 62 grains imr 4064 at almost 3400 fps. worst groups are .75, best if were workin together has been ragged holes.
the worst part about the packin/walkin in, is getting the dead thing out !!!
got my cow elk last season in co., at 723 yards on the other mountain side full of oak brush, used a spotter, 2 of us went up to find her, then the other 4 came up to help get the pieces down.
(like a laser)
