Re: Lightweight rifle build

Lightweight rig. I'd buy a used Kimber Montana in 325wsm. Spin barrel off, have smith install a 9 twist 7mm WSM barrel. Bed it and roll on. Would be light, much less expensive and with a good turret equipped scope would work fine to long range.

Re: Lightweight rifle build

Kurtb,

Ive wanted to do just that when I found out they quit chambering the 7wsm. I will be doing this but not yet. Is there any other work that needs to be done to make that change?

Re: Lightweight rifle build

i,ve been watching this thread and thinking about a rifle with the same parameters like the cool factor of the peirce action but theres piles of rifles on gunbroker and your local gun shops with great actions find a magnum chambered one thats smooth and comfortable( i played with a lot of new actions at the local shops and most feel like clunky junk) then PM je customs about fixing u a rifle. he seems knowledgeable patient and a member.

Do yourself a favor and take my advice.
Buy a Tikka T3 SS 300 win mag or wsm.
Use the leftover $ get a nice scope and any other gear.
