    I am looking for a quality, long range mountain rifle to either buy or trade.

    Calibers:
    270 WSM
    300 WSM
    300 Win Mag

    Rifle:
    Stainless Barrel
    Laminate or Synthetic stock

    Weight:
    Looking for something between 5.5lbs and 7.5lbs.

    Brands:
    Sako
    Kimber
    Remington
    Custom or other highly accurate guns

    Not interested in low or middle end rifles. This has to work every time and in EXTREME conditions and take a pounding while traveling.

    I have a lot of various stuff for trade like:
    Zeiss Scopes
    Sako 85 Laminate in 338 Federal
    Remington 700P LTR 223 - Law Enforcement model and extremely accurate
    Possible Exotic Hunts or management whitetail (Texas)
    Sigma (Canon Mount) 120-300 F2.8 - super sharp sports/wildlife lens
    etc..

    I can just sell something and buy what I am looking for but thought I would try for some trade action first.

    PM or email me at:

    Thanks,
    Kevin

    I should probably mention I am new to this forum but I have a ton of references I can send if that is a worry for anyone.

    Kevin, I may know a guy who will sell a Kimber Montana 270WSM. He offered to sell it to me for 900 bucks, but I had already found one.

    I was in the same boat 2 years ago. I was looking for a light weight rifle to pack in on my Couse Deer hunts. I ended up buying a new Tikka T3 Lite SS synthetic stock. in .270 WSM. Rifle by itself weighs in at 6.4 lbs. After working up good load for it it has served me extreamly well and you cant beat the price. I believe I paid around $650 brand new.

    Just my .02

    Speedy.

    I was going to have a mountain rifle built but over the winter I had a 280 Rem 700 that I wanted to restock. I bought a Bell And CArlson Thumbhole stock (carbelite). I used devcon for the bedding and with Zeiss conquest 3x9 it weighs 9 pounds on the nose. Very accurate and I decided to spend my build monies on something else. This is my favorite hunting rifle in the stable. And contends as my all time favorite now. Perhaps a bit heavier than your goal...but just only. As far as sturdy and up to the task, I feel it is as tough as anything else I could purchase.
