Love my 7SS Barrels, Creedmoor is Ok tooI have two anTi's on the way. One standard and one mag bolt face both short action. Already have 2 XLR Element Magnesium Chassis and 2 Hells Canyon summit ultralight barrels should be finished and shipped to me this month. One is going to be a 7 SS and the other a 6 creedmoor. Light weight deer rifle and a lightweight coyote gun
If your build it super light for a sheep rifle a 260AI or a straight 6.5 CM would be perfect. Mountain rifles are not intended to be long range rifles and either of those cartridges will kill a sheep orca deer out to say 500 yards easy.I’ve built a few 6.5 RSAUMs and light weight 6 and 6.5 Creeds already. Just got a hold of my first Defiance AnTi, its like nothing weight wise, couldn’t imagine anything but a Proof Sendero Light or a new Bartlein #4 contour for a build. Its a std bolt face (not sure the mag face was even avail at time of order) other than a 260AI, I cannot think of other choices that would appeal to others after I build it...input guys?
I just ordered an anTi last week- with a standard bolt and a second bolt for magnums. Im going to do a switch barrel with Proofs since I like the last two I did so much. I’m thinking of a 6.5x47 or a .308win for the standard and a Sherman in either 6.5 or .338 for the magnum.
it’ll have a Manners EH6 stock.
Im definately a fan of the smaller Nightforce. But if i’m looking to shave oz id stick with the Leupold VX3 in 2-8x36 or the newer VX5HD n be really comfortable out to 400 yards in a superlight set up. REALLY leaning toward the 25 CM for a bit more bullet weight
