View Full Version : Rifle Weight?

03-14-2003, 11:41 AM
I'm leaning towards building a .260 Rem. The duties I'm wanting this to cover are a 'sheep' type rifle yet with enough heft and barrel for some extended shooting sessions. I really like the Rambler, but just can't convince the wife (also known as 'the bank') that it is needed. So, I'm leaning towards a semi-custom job with a projected goal of 6.25# scoped and ready to go. Would you consider this a good compromise?

Remington 600 in 6.5 Rem magnum, with a glass stock. Or rebarrel a 308 to 260?

Both would work. My 600 308 is under 6lbs scoped.

Why not a Remington M700 Titanium. I would have one, but prefer the M70 Winchesters.

What brand of stock are you using on your 600 and how much does it weigh? I have a 660 in .308 and I'm trying to decide what to put on it.

I am not much help. The stock is a Garrett Accur Light, and as far as I can tell, Garrett is out of business. It weighs slightly less than a pound. If I had to buy a new stock, I am not sure what I would do with today's choices. Some of the smart folks on this board who know today's stocks should comment.

A Remington 600/660 with a glass stock is a hard to beat lightweight combination. I like the .308 so much, that I am tempted to have someone put the bolt on the left side where it belongs. Yes, I know, a 700 BDL lh is cheaper. But this little son of a gun really shoots!

Thanks Kevin. Does anybody else have a recomendation for a synthetic stock for a 660?

High Tech Stocks makes 'em for a 600. I think they go about 20oz.
