Savage 110 Lightweight Storm.  Between 3 of us we have 4 of them, all shoot amazing with factory ammo.  I bought mine in 6.5cm because some of the places I hunt I dont need to pack the 12lb 7mag.  I got the 6.5 since I already have everything to reload as I also have a LR 6.5.  The scoped rifle weighs 6lb, 9 zo.  Talley one piece lightweight rings and Leupold VX Freedom 3-9 with tri-moa makes this woods gun point and shoot for me out to 400 yards.  200 yard zero, first moa hash mark is 250, second is 300.  Ive yet to verify at 350 and 400 but will soon and just have a cheat sheet on my rangefinder.  It is purely my woods carry rifle that is cross canyon (within reason) capable.

Sierra 130gr Game Changers are the shtuff for this little rifle and as soon as I use up the factory stuff I will load my own to the same velocity node.
I am excited to carry this rifle this year as it will let me wonder for mules a bit more, not having to lug my heavy LR rigs and gear. 

Since it is hunt only, my focus is on first 2 shots, cold bore and follow up, as I know this little guy will heat up fast, but the pic of the target is after sight in at 100 and cool down, then these were my 200 yard cold bore and follow up before I moved it over to DC.  I cant ask for more from a pure hunt rifle.

Sportsmans has the Browning 28 Nosler Hells Canyon Speed in Camo/ Burnt Bronze for $1100 with brake.  Load with Factory Bergers good to 1000 yards.  Or get the 6.5 same rifle offered above.
