Re: Weight of rifle
Depends on the kind of shots I think I'll be presented with. For shooting out to 1000 yards the Sendero represents an ideal platform.
The rifle I actually use is an Allen Precision custom 270 WSM.
Stiller Predator action, Jewell trigger, Manners MCS-SL all carbon fiber stock, Satern #4 taper fluted barrel, Talley rings and bases, and a Nightforce 2.5-10 scope. Rig weighs about 8 lbs as is.
I would feel comfortable shooting elk to 700 yards with it, assuming proper rest, no or low wind, good shot angle. I prefer a 7mm but got a steal on this rifle, NIB.
