I guess I'm different than some. I could care less how long/short/heavy/light my rifle is if I'm sitting in a tree stand all day. To be honest if I'm only up a tree, I would probably opt for my Pre 64 Win 70 in .264 with a 26" barrel, my heaviest and most accurate rifle. I want a short light rifle when I'm moving around on the ground or hiking these East TN hills, my favorite for that is my Kimber 84M Montana in .308. My best of both worlds gun is my Kimber 8400 in 270 WSM.

When given a choice between what I have, my Kimber 84M .308 generally comes out of the safe when wanting fairly short and light. I havent used a rifle that handles better than that for me.

The best one for me is the one I decide to take out of the safe to hunt with that day in a treestand. That's easy hunting. I would be more concerned with which rifle I had to tote around through the woods, up and down hills, and in the thickets all day long.

My little Stevens 200 in a .308/timney trigger/elite 3x9 scope weighs out a 6 1/4 lbs. Shoots 1/2 MOA all day long. Sweet!
