I currently have a Howa 1500 in .243 coupled with a T8 mod and I find it a very heavy set up especially when stalking on foot. After about an hour I get serious shoulder achage!
I recently carried a friends Sako 75 for a short distance and found the weight difference noticeable. I forget what mod he had on it now but even with a bi-pod which I do not have on my Howa it seemed so much lighter.
I like the Skao 75 stainless and am thinking of getting rid of my Howa and T8 and getting a lighter set up.
Does anyone have any views on the Sako 75 weight compared to the Howa 1500?
Also can anyone recommend a recent light weigh mod?
