I re-barreled the STW with a 30"magnum contour Hart barrel. It's a bit top heavy to throw over the shoulder and head up the mountain. What methods are you using for carrying the big ones?
Thank you,

This may not be the answer you’re looking for but when I’m carrying a barrel heavy rifle I just strap it to my pack.
I’ve also had success with the claw rifle sling installed on a rail with a QD mounted as far forward as I can get it.
McMillan makes my favorite rail, maybe mounting one far forward could help?

I use the biathlon sling mentioned above for when I am hunting without a pack, I do also own and use the Kifaru Gun Bearer for use with my pack. I do use the Kifaru more than anything. The long barrel does stick out in front of my face a little but it also makes for a steady rest for my binoculars when I stop and glass for a few minutes.
