Care to share specs on a 3lb 8oz scoped 6.5CM? I would LOVE to see that! I cannot comprehend how nice that would be to carry/pack.
Is it a pistol?
As the 6.5 Creed has developed a “cult” following, I used it as an example. As for the weight, I merely kept “plugging-in” weight values until the recoil was a few pounds lighter than that of my wife’s rifle. As to rifle construction .....I’m thinking all components made of plastic. Plastic should provide adequate structural integrity for the “Creed”!
In was a “tongue in cheek” response, in an attempt to show how light rifle would need to be, chambered in the 6.5 Creed ....before recoil becomes an issue for those that can tolerate a little recoil. I guess my sarcasm was wasted! memtb
