I’m writing this for a friend as I’m having trouble supporting his rifle purchase properly.... Basically he wants a goat/elk hunting rife that he can shoot 400-600 yards max at game as well as ring some steel at whatever range out to 1000 yards. So, his latest rendition is a Manners stock, but instead of a typical 5.5 lb barrel, he is thinking about a 3.5-4lb tube. What have you built or seen built like this as a light tactical rifle? Caliber is most likely 300 Win Mag, or 308 or 6.5 creed or .....I keep trying to sell him on 280 AI, but that is going no where. 300 WM good enough? I think this means somehow he wants a lightweight tactical rifle with adjustable cheek piece for bigger scope...something basically where the rifle comes in around 8.5 lbs, mount 0.75 lbs, scope 2 lbs. Any ideas how to build something like this? Proof barrel....look at Christianson Arms??
