    I was thinking about having a Holland TAC handle installed on my Rem build. This will be for a hunting rifle that is used for backpack style hunts. I like the looks of the handle. So the question is, will this handle stick out to far, and get snagged up on my pack, or crawling/walking through brush?

    Unless you can drive up to your hunting spot anything can interfere with brush, back pack, drag bag
    scabbards ETC.

    I don't even like the tall scope knobs/caps or the long tactical bolt handle on my carry rifles.

    A true brush/pack rifle needs to be compact and with nothing hanging out including 50 or
    56mm scope objectives In My Opinion.

    The accessories look good at the range, but simple is the best for a working rifle.

    Just My Opinion

    That is kinda of what I was thinking, but wasn't sure how far it stuck out.

    Thanks
