Tikka T3 Lite at 2.7 kilograms = 5.95248 lbs. That is just a hair under 6 lbs and even available in .223 Rem.
Very hard to beat the accuracy and trigger out of the box for anywhere near the price. And you are correct about the action. Add the limbsaver and a light weight scope and quite the nice hiking rifle.
The barrel got sizzling hot.
Yet another bonus of living in Alaska; not really a problem, still wait if I can't comfortably hold the barrel...
