Re: Ultimate backpacking rifle

Hopefully get to the range within the next week or two. Wanna hunt with it a little this fall, sure does point nice and for such a light rifle it sure holds steady offhand.

The scope is a Leupold ultralite 2-7x33 LR and it has Talley one piece Rings/Bases.

    WOW, great looker. Certainly could have used that on an Alaskan goat hunt, sheep hunt, backpack dear hunt etc. . . I was happy with my 6.5 lb rig (more powerfull optics) but when you are climbing mountains every ounce counts thats why the pack nuts cut the tags out of there clothes and trim belts and laces. Looks like a dream to carry, good caliber. Congrats on a nice build, send us results!

    Looks well thought out and great choice in 7mm08. Very curious to hear how that she shoots. I want one!
