    Looks cool, "high country" as in mountain rifle? Weighs 8# with a 24" barrel, not a light weight by any means.

    I was looking for a new coyote gun a few weeks ago - really wanted a 243 and took a real close look at the high country. Ended up with a 6mm creed Bergara Approach, but I am excited to hear how this shoots. I love the spiral fluting on the barrel. We just bought my son a 223 in the new 110 storm and it is a tack driver with factory ammo. I am guessing this high country will be the same thing.
