Any guess on the actual weight difference.  I'm trying to determine if having a stiffer barrel, will be worth the weight.  If it is only 1/4 lb, then to me, yes, but if it is 3/4 lb, no.

Here's a pretty good calculator to play around with....

I got a buddy in the process of getting the loot in order to have you build him a rifle this year. We have had the conversation many times about which model/caliber many times and" I don't know" seems to be the answer we arrive at. If you were to build 1 do it all hunting rifle for all big game that you could backpack in the mtns or lay down and practice out to 1000 yds & beyond, what model/caliber would you build him? Thanks

The LW Hunters or the new carbon hunters are solid choices for a lighter packing style rifle.  Build one in 7 mag or 300wm and it will do anything most will want

Cool thanks for the response. Is there any advantages or disadvantages with the carbon barrels to consider?

Probably the biggest advantage I see to them is being able to use a full size brake on the light rifles.  Makes them much more enjoyable to shoot.  Basically they weigh the same as a fluted #4, but will accept a suppressor and more effective brakes. The added cost can deter folks however.

An atlas rail will bolt on. Take out the sling studs and the rail will attach there

Travis, who's CF barrels have you used with good results?  Have you used any Hardy CF wrapped barrels or any of the Benchmark CF wrapped barrels yet??  Thanks!

Has anyone used the WTO Switch Lug or a similar product? A buddy showed this to me and it looks like it could be a great thing...or it could be relying on 30 in/lbs to make or break your accuracy.

It's certainly an interesting concept, but no, we haven't used any of those.

A couple quick questions for ya. I see you guys have done 1 day intro to LR shooting & hunting classes in the past. What is the cost of doing this? Also I was wondering, I know you don't do any smithing work other than builds now, could you recommend your favorite brake and somebody on the west side to install it? Thank you
