    I'm looking at getting a backcountry either in a 270 or 30-06 for backpacking for elk hunt. . Any ideas on it? Reviews? It looks like a solid rifle...seem kinda hard to find them also.. could be a good thing or bad. ..let me know what you think. .

    Really nice rifles. I've found them at Sportsmans warehouse. I'll probably have one soon

    Josh, your local gun shop should be able to order it for you. 30-06 sounds good for elk, ammo and reloading components are plentiful and reasonable in price. You can shoot a huge variety of bullets through it also. Good luck

    that does look like a sweet rifle, for that much i would think it would be a little lighter, but still a good looking package.
