I am looking at getting a "mountain" gun built for sheep and goat hunting. I have it narrowed down to these 2 calibures, 7mm mag or a 30-06. Both would be in the stainless/synthetic stock. Now here is the questions.
1.) Can eigther of these be built to be as light as possible and deadly accurate for under $1500.00 ish?
2.) Just for a minds idea for me, 180gn bullet shot out of both, what would a guestament FPS be between the two? I know differant powders/primers/bullets are going to make a differance.
3.) What kind of total weight between the two can I expect?
4.) what kind of bolt action would you use? Style/brand?
5.) Trigger? set to what wieght?
6.) What make and model would you use? i.e. rem, rug, win.....
I am looking at spoiling myself with a custom rifle, what better one to build then a mountain gun. I am use to packing the .300 I had at a full weight of 11lbs .
Thanks in advance...
