    welcome! I had to laugh at myself for being a little closed minded -> when I saw that you were from the south I assumed that you were from the southern US. It turns out that when I ASSuMe something I made an.... well, you get the point :)

    How much lighter is that Rem Titanium than the standard?

    Re: greetings from down under

    sorry about that one mate.after i posted the thread i realised that such a thing could and proberly would happen so ive changed the title to suit.
    the wieght differance between the ti and standard sps is only about three quatures of a pound i think(the action is half a pound lighter than a eqivilent steel short action)with the pack in hunts back home in the mountains every ounce counts.
    curently pulling remainding hair out as gunsmith back home isnt happie about ordering custom reamer with out dummie rounds made up.
    i was wanting .316 neck and throat set up to get 162 gr amax to just touch the rifleing with a 3 inch oal.
    as all my reloading gear is back home im unsure on what i can do.
    thanks for the welcome and theyr some sweet looking shooting rigs.
