I once tried to build my own 6.5 PRC light weight rifle.
My custom rife wish list:
1. 3 lug bolt
2. Timney ot Trigger Tech trigger
3. carbon fiber stock
4. locking bolt when on safe
5. stainless action, bolt and barrel
5. fluted bolt and barrel
7. factory lapped barrel
But Mon Deu! The cost!
So then i looked at the SAKO Carbonlite and the Browning X-Bolt Pro. I found the X-Bolt Pro had ALL the items on my wish list except the trigger. But their Feather trigger on my rifle is now averaging 2 lbs. 9 oz. on my digital pull scale.
The SAKO was not showing me a good trigger and missing a few other things PLUS it was about $900. more money for not as many features. And I feel the elves in Finland don't build rifles any better than the Japanese Miroku workers.
That's my story and I'm stickin' to it.
If I am headed more than 10 miles into the backcountry I carry a NULA 284 that weighs 5.7 lbs all in. To be fair I haven't shot anything with it at more than 320yds and I would not shoot it more than 500. I had been carrying it for everything, but recently I started using a Sako AV Fiberclass 270 for shorter outings. While heavier, I am much less concerned with it while hunting.
