    LIGHTWEIGHT 223 WTB

    I'm after a lightweight 223 bolt action, something like a Howa mini or Savage lightweight or kimber 223. Not really keen on a tikka or norinco or rem700. A 1in9 twist would be sweet.
    I have a few things I could trade or cash. Cheers

    The Browning X Bolt is a true super short action if I remember tight.

    There are only three types of people in this world. Those that can count, and those that can't!

    I liked the browning A bolt, but the xbolt is one ugly gun, the guy who designed it must have also designed the Mitsubishi Triton.

    Howa mini 223 is 5.7lb, CZ carbine 223 5.9lb. The Howa is not bad weight wise.
