I am looking to build a light weight hunter rifle I've been working on this for some time and so far just have the action a titanium Pierce Engineering Looking for a carbon barrel that will work. Pierce suggests a larger shank then the current companies are doing anyone have any ideas? I already have a 30 pound target gun in the cheytac just looking to be around 15 pounds with optic for my hunter rifle anyone have ideas that could help me out?

I think your on the right track. I have a hunting 375 Cheytac, a custom .375 Chey Tac rifle built on a Montana Rifle 1999 PH action ( SS 416). The action was modified to accommodate the longer cartridge. Benchmark barrel in .375 SS 10 T 5 gr, Fin 30, 1.30 ST to .850 3 square flutes. The stock is one of Oregunsmithing T-11 adjustable stocks. Rifle built by Wayne of Oregunsmithing. I added the rings and Leupold Mk6 3-18, weighs in at 16.31 lbs unloaded.

i hope to take it on a hunt in the next few years, have not had time to Use it yet.

Thanks for the info I think I’ll order the proof carbon barrel and get get the stock in order that will take the longest
Does that proof have the larger shank? Pierce is very good with that stuff. They have done a bunch for me. Also keep in mind that some of the carbon barrels don’t save that much weight. You can get lighter barrels in steel but they won’t be as stiff. So for hunting it won’t be needed
