    Thanks for all the input. My next step is so check out some of the shops in the area and see what they have and how they “feel” in my hands.

    I'm a Rem fan also. Bought my .30-06 700 ADL in '75 and never looked back. Almost got it in .308, but the .308 is more limited in bullet weight than the -06. Balistically, they are pretty close. I reload, so I can "tune" my rounds to suit my rifle perfectly.

    I tried the "light weight" rifle bit. Took well over a pound off the ADL. It kicked my teeth out. Hated shooting it. Glass bedded it and added all the weigh back. Now it's good for a whole day at the range. It carried all over the hills of WA and AK as well as any "Lightweight" rifle. Invest in a good carry strap; forget the extra lb.

    Many good brands out there, none of which would I kick out of bed--except on opening morning!
