    Same here, Kimber any day

    The action on the Forbes I had was downright horrible

    Rit loves his Ruger American Frazer. They are pretty damn light about 5.5lb shoot pretty well and are cheap as. I set one up for the old man too in 233 cut to 14” with a can and red dot. Shot a few Roos and pigs with it. I’ve shot a 308 adrianik without a suppressor, nice wee rifle but you’ve got to hang onto them reasonably tight.

    Hate those stocks though.

    Did you stabilize them with epoxy @Cowboy06?

    Another option is a Howa with a carbon stock.

    No just as they are. Don’t use a bipod everything standing or kneeling. At pistol range on Sunday, nick had a mint 303 never seen one with such a nice bore. He was smaking everything with it with the open sights standing. He shoots pretty good though that boy.

    6.2lb according to Ruger website, about the same as a T3 lite.

    Savage lightweight hunter keeps tempting me, 5.5lb with wood stock which I prefer to the plastic fantastics.

    Have a look at the Howa Alpine Mountain Rifle, 5.7lbs, fully cerakoted and comes with a choice composite Legendary Arms Stock.

    Good price for what you get too.

    Very happy with mine, chopped to 16 and fitted a DPT overbarrel, carry it all day like its not there.

    Shoots under an inch with factory ammo, sure it would tighten up even further once I start hand loading for it.

    I've talked to people with them who have been bloody amazed with their accuracy. Bloody cheap, bloody ugly, but bloody accurate.

    I think gunwork can do a good fluting job on their bolts for the ones looking to take down the weight even further.
