    Hello all,

    Just wanted to know if anyone out there has any experience or thoughts on a particular rifle. I am looking for a mid-weight walking deer rifle, 7.5 lbs is ok for the gun, stripped. Don't really want to go heavier tho. I do want a heavy varmint-style barrel tho, no sporter-weights.

    I was looking at the Remington 700 VTR in .308 Win. It has a 22" barrel, that is shaved into a triangular shape to save weight, it also has an integral muzzle break. I am definitely getting a 308 win, so don't try talking me out of that, but how is this rifle?

    I already own a 700 BDL Varmint, Winchester 94, and a Savage 12, among others. Looking for a mid-weight, accurate, deer rifle.

    Thanks.
