I am relatively new to long range hunting. I am in the process of moving to Colorado and am looking forward hunting out west. i am wanting a rifle that is a good shooter for longer shots but is not too heavy to carry. Eventually i want to build a long range rifle for prone shooting but right now i want to build or buy a rifle that is a good medium. One that i can pack but is accurate to a reasonable long range. How light of rifle can I build and how far cna i look to be accurate. Thanks for all the help. I have learned a lot just by looking at this site. I have 2 actions to build on one short and one long. I am also trying to buy a savage 12bvss in 300 win mag to build a long range gun on. Right now i am looking at building my go to rifle. Thanks again.
