    I have an xbolt chopped to just under 17" with dpt suppressor. Its the shortest possible without suppressor touching stock. Nice to shoot, running 168amax supers and 150 grain cast subs

    Depending on budget and preference have a look at the kimbers I had a kimber .308 cut to 16 don't think you could possibly get any lighter still regret selling it...

    The amax should be good at the reduced velocity.

    Savage Lightweight Hunter fits the description spot on, would be my pick. Cool little rifles.

    30.30 projectiles are another option for a bush rifle in .308
    the flat nose works really well in a short barrel where you effectively cut the performance down to 30.30 ballistics. and being a bush gun, the long range trajectories are irrelevant.

    I was hoping it could shoot out to 400yrds ,the stock may be the limit in how short can cut the barrel to fit the suppresser ,can the stock be cut or does anyone make a shorter stock?

    What sort of velocity are you getting with the 168's?

    I only had mine cut to 20", suppressor takes it back up to 22".
