    7mm Saum or similar

    As above,

    Would like a sako 75 ideally but not over fussy

    Light is good

    Condition not critical

    Would also consider wsm, a 7 blaser, etc

    What's out there

    Isn't sako 75 and light weight a contradiction in terms ��

    Pretty much ha ha. It will end up with a carbon stock which saves a big chunk of weight.

    Sako seem to use a fairly heavy standard profile barrel but I don't think they are any heavier than a dense little mod 7.

    It would be interesting to see actual weights of the various action/trigger/bottom metal/magazine combos. Barrels and stocks usually get modified or changed so not really relevant

    I've got before and after weights of all the individual parts of my model 7 7mmSaum I can dig out, someone else will likely have same for the sako.

    A mod 7 is high on the list

    Bolt with fluting 11.6 oz 10.8 oz 0.8 oz
    Fluted bolt lightweight pin 10.8 oz 9.0 oz 1.8 oz
    Action with barrel fluting 3lb 11 oz 3lb 5.9 oz 5.1 oz

    So as you can see, the stock gives the biggest weight saving by a long shot, and by far the best weight saving for the cost. The other things give very minimal savings, but i guess a few little savings all add up to achieve a good total weight reduction.

    With the talleys on, and a 4-16x50 exposed turret scope it weighs right on 3.1kg, so a total saving of just over 1kg from stock. It is now a pleasure to carry anywhere.

    Did you ever work out cost per gram saving?
    I did on my stock and it was scary. Didn't stop me though.

    Yeah mine was much better $/gram on the stock than the rest, by a massive margin

    Just imagine how much weight (and money) you would save if you just used open sights.:-)

    Theres also this
    Winchester pre '64 Project in for sale by dermastor, its evidently a rem mag in sort of 7mm could be more could be less.
    Nice action though.
