Ultimate backpacking rifle

OK so I'm a gunaholic, my pastime is playing with rifles and stuff.

Here's a new one I Just finished inbetween work and building my house.

This is a project that I purposely tried to build a rifle that was 5lbs with a scope for the ultimate backpacking rifle.

It started life as a 260 Remington Ti

-So yeah its got the Titanium action
-Chambered in 7mm-08
-Custom pencil contour Hart SS barrel cut to 20"
-Gre-tan match pin/spring and shroud
-Lonewolf kevlar/Carbon Fiber stock
-BDL bottom metal, probably could have dropped some weight there but I prefer BDL

Metal work done by Bill Leeper
Stock work done by myself

It tips the scales at 4lbs 15 ounces scoped
