    I have not held one. No doubt it is a fine rifle. It's just not my style.

    I would not want a 6.5lb 7mm RM. A muzzle brake would be essential for me. I do not like the BOSS system if that's even an option.

    It looks like a good rifle for the average hunter to sight in annually and tote around deer camp for a couple of weekends a year.

    Terry,

    6.5lb w/o scope is what I read. So, you're probably right.

    I have a brake on my 7mm RM Sendero. I don't know the weight. But, I'm sure it's much heavier. It's a real pleasure to shoot 20 rounds at 500-1,000 yds.

    If you like the rifle and think it'll work, you should buy it. Unless you plan to compete, the only person you have to please is yourself. You can hunt just about anything in North America.
