    I'm looking for a lightweight, longe-range hunting rifle in either 300 RUM or 338 Edge. I'd like to keep the total weight down as much as possible and won't consider anything over 10lbs, but would like it to be lighter than that. I'm also not looking for a factory, out-of-the-box rifle. I want it to be either a custom build or something that has been improved upon. Send me a PM if you have anything that may meet what I'm looking for. Thanks!

    I have a 300 RUM for sale, however the only "improvement" to it is a limbsaver pad. It's a Browning A-bolt stainless, 26" barrel, black plastic stock. It's one of those older model ultra mags that Browning only made for a year or two. It has a Leupy 4.5-14 with CDS dial set up for 200 Nosler Accubonds at 3200 fps. Has around 50 rounds through it. Asking $1500 for the package.

    You or anybody else can pm or call me at 503-819-8022.

    Make me an offer

    I have a rifle that may fit your bill. Here are the details

    Remington LA- Trued
    PTG One piece bolt fluted with PTG Tactical handle
    PTG .3" recoil lug
    PTG obendorf bottom metal
    Wyatt Extended centerfeed mag
    Brux Barrell - Sendero contour Fluted @ 29" (31" with brake)
    RWS Brake
    Bell Carlson Alaskan ii stock (Bedded with devcon)
    30moa EGW HD Rail
    Rifle Basix Trigger

    This thing weighs 8 lbs on the bathroom scale with the rail

    I literally only have 60 rounds through this thing. It shoots very, very well. I have taken it out to 1350 yards with ease. It shoots the 300 gr smks at 2860 with 92 grains of h100o and a single digit es.

    Its a pussy cat to shoot with the brake. The guys on either side of you at the range flinch a bit though

    Let me know if you are interested. I don't have very good pictures and I am out of town until friday

    The barrel looks crazy long in this picture, but its not

    I forgot to add an important detail. My gun is a 338 Edge.
