I used a M70 because its a rifle I had in my gun cabinet that has sentimental value, so I can never sell it. Obviously not the best choice for an all out no holds barred lightweight rifle but still a cool project. As far as sweating a couple ounces in the stock, well its a couple ounces, so why not.
All my other lightweight rifles are remingtons and two of them are Titaniums, the winchester was just the ugly step child in the cabinet that needed some attention.
