My ancient legs told me that my 9.5-pound '06 was too heavy to tote around all day. Mr. Remington said he'd sell me a 700Ti in 7mm08 which weighed 5.25 pounds. I sez, "Good." So, with scope, sling and ammo it's 6.5 pounds--which suits me just fine.
The 7mm08 is a .308 with ten grains less bullet weight in a Basic Bambi Load. Plenty good to 300 yards, I figure.
