    Not too big however it weighs a bit once all the go fast parts are added
    Never was going to be a hunting gun, gong and longer range wallaby gun was the intention.
    Have numerous other hunting carry

    Very cool - you’ll enjoy it for sure. The 2b is a great option for hunting or gongs. With the overall size and weight you could easily use it without the suppressor, recoil is pretty mild in 6.5 06

    Very easy to load for.
    I loved the 130 scirocco. Had it going 3100 thru a 26" barrel on my blaser.
    Mate got a 24" for his blaser and it has it also doing 3100fps.
    I have only ever made 3 LR shots on animals beyond 500 m. All with the 6.5-06 and it handled them as expected. Longest being 870m

    I was put off LR shooting animals after that. Let's just say the shooting was the easy part.

    no 4 is pretty heavy, I went no3 on my 65-06ai and found it a good balance in weight vs accuracy trade off. Did same on a 280ai but fluted as well & its a lazer.

    I dont ever put long strings down the barrel on any of my boom sticks, at most 3 -4 shots in a row then wait plenty of time for cool down. The 3 or 3 fluted has proved itself plenty capable for this whether its targets or animals - provided the nut behind the bolt is on form. If you were going to run longer strings then the No4 would help as it provides a larger heat sink, but then again once its hot its going to take longer to cool down too.

    I run a #4 Shilen at 24.5" on my 260, I had Gunworks do an 8 flute job on it which looks sweet. I shoot it mainly on targets and steel. It comes out at 3.6kg on a Tikka action scoped etc. I have 2 other rifles running #4, I like having a bit of weight up front.
