    Lightweight Rifle

    After a lightweight rifle for 0-200m general hunting.

    Any calibre considered, short action prefered 284 / 260 / 308 etc

    Will be chasing Sika, Fallow, Reds in the bush sub 100m.

    Have had a good look around and found a nice suppressed model seven 7-08, but just if anyone has had anything sitting in the safe and wants cash instead....

    Thanks.
    Warm Barrels!

    I've got a Husqvarna 1600 in 30-06 for sale. It was considered a lightweight rifle in it's day. It's not super-lightweight, but is comparable to a T3.
    More meplat, more better.

    I bought a new Howa M1500 in 7.62x39 for just that reason last year. And it's perfect for that. But I've never used it because I haven't made it to the forest since then. Happy to discuss.

    That might be the only properly lightweight suggestion in this thread so far!
