Could this be the greatest new modern sporting rifle?

11.25lbs without scope, not many willing to tote a 13lb gun in the woods. A solution to a problem that doesn’t exist. 

Yep I posted it before I looked at the  weight., no thanks especially for almost 2K you think they could make it lighter for that price.

Yes, just because something can be done, does not mean it should be done.

I built a 300wsm ar10 a few years ago and all said and done I was still north of 8.5lbs and it went down the road. It would blow this debotchery’s performace away but still too heavy for practical use.

After finding the rabbit hole a few years ago, I'm a modern sporting rifle guy. Not sure there's a big need for this style rifle in 30/06, but it will sell just out of novelty if anything. When I came across it a few weeks back on their site it peaked my interest for a few hours, but not enough to put serious thought into a purchase.

 

This style of rifle is gaining more and more of a foothold with a lot of hunters. They aren't everyone's cup of tea though. Yep, they are heavy, and nope they sure aren't your grandpa's trusty lever gun, but they still have a place in the hunting world. 

 

 

I don't feed trolls.

I’m old fashioned and prefer a bolt action rifle for my big game hunting, but the overwhelming majority of eastern hunters are deer hunters and shooting off some form of shooting rail from some form of stand or blind. For those hunters, rifle weight is of little concern. I certainly wouldn’t want to lug it around on a spot and stalk hunt.

heck when they finally allowed rifles in parts of 8f and 7j, the difference in weight from my semi-auto 12 gauge browning to 30-06 bolt action rifle was like I went from carrying a cannon to a bb gun. I still bet most guys are hiking some distance to a stand. I know there are folks that will drive their quad right up to their blind and sit in there with a heater, but I don't see these guys consistently knocking down mature deer either. 

That said, you're right in that we're not crossing hells canyon glassing for elk either haha.

i don't care to bring it deep in but i'd much rather bring my Remington 742 that came from my grandfather with me than that.

If i'm hauling around an ar10 that heavy it's going to have to be something that will reach way out there. a cheaply manufactured novelty 30-06 aint it. lol

Just not a fan of ar platform.. I prefer a classic wood stocked  rifle.   Nephew  in military and his friends  loves em.

probably why they are becoming  common.  Used  in military and familiar to those that served in last 50 years...
