    If it were me and this was solely a pack rifle and shots under 500yards I would pick a Barrett Fieldcraft in 30-06 and shoot 165 Berger’s. Rifle weight is 5.6lbs and with a razor LH 3-15 all up would be under 7lbs. Everything I’ve feed mine is well under MOA and mostly sub.5.

    I know you didn’t list as an option but maybe give it a look. I love my seekins in 6 creed, but all-up its over 9lbs and I wouldn’t want to pack that deep into the woods.

    Even better wasn’t sure if they are making it yet or not, I heard they were planning on it. The fit and finish of those rifle are amazing and they blow away Kimber Montana in out of the box accuracy. Only down fall is blind mag.

    So the dangerous thing about polls is that people cast their votes without any experience with either rifle...cough, cough, me.

    Both will serve you well. I saw a guy at a comp win with a Bergara premier in 6CM. Beat guys with 3-4K rifles.

    My premier approach in 6mm puts the hornady match stuff in a nice small clover leaf all day long.
