Featherweights have a 22" barrel in both 308 and 30-06. The reason I'd choose that caliber is for nostalgia's sake only.

I have another bolt action in 308 as well as an Ar10. Both weigh around 11lbs. After walking around this year I was dead, and wanted a handier rifle and something more traditional.

This rifle is something I plan on hunting a lot with. I'd like to be able to hunt Elk with it as well so I figured lighter would be better. It just feels like they cut corners with the Featherweight rifles.

Reading up however, Jack O'Connor's sheep rifle was 8lbs even... Hmm
