I've been thinking of getting a lighter stalking rifle setup as I've been having shoulder trouble lately so just wondering what is out there and for how much. Also while i'm changing I'm thinking low maintenance would be an idea and longevity to save me needing to change again in the future.
I'm not sure which rifles to avoid so any pointers there would be helpful too.
Screwcut at least or with a mod that is lightweight and strippable for cleaning
With a magazine
Decent condition with respectable shot count as it'll just be for stalking and I won't put loads through it
Mounts would be handy to suit the rifle
Budget flexible to a degree as hopefully if I can sell both the .243 and .308 with a T8 reflex mod and possibly a spare Meopta scope I should have a few quid to play with,
If it comes to it I could also change calibre to get the right setup, maybe .270 or 6.5 x 55?
