Re: Ultimate Mountain Rifle
If deer, antelope and maybe sheep are on the menu, and you want a light rifle, I personally see nothing finer than a good .270 Winchester. It can be built light, typically shoots flat and very well and kills stuff right now.
Here's my lightweight rifle pick in that cartridge - a custom Rifle's Inc. Lightweight Strata that weighs just 5 pounds 12 ounces with Talley Lightweight Mounts and a Leupold VX-III 2.5-8 scope.
