Love my Encore. Its light and the 24'' barrel makes it where i can swing it around easy.

Either one of my Mdl 7's .260 or the 7-08. My Encore in .243 is also a great little tree stand rifle.

Ruger M77 Compact in 260 REM with a Burris Fullfield II 2-7X35. It weighs about a pound less than my Browning ABolt 270, and the compact stock makes it easier to shot from the awkward positions tree stand hunting sometimes presents. Also, the 16.5" barrel really doesn't hurt the velocity that much; it can still reach out there and touch them, as this video shows:

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!


That is one light rifle. How in the world did you get it so light with the scope on it? The rifle itself is 6.5 pounds and the scope is 13 oz.
