hunting, deer out to 500 yards. once I have it all put together, I will shoot it, making sure I can make first round hits, (ethical shots)

I will also stretch it out as far as I can on steel for fun. I will run out of elevation around 600-700 yards

What about the McWhorter 6.5 Weatherby and the 6.5 Fieldcraft did/do you not like for this purpose?

Just trying to distill down the issues and options.

The McWhorter seems like it should have been very good for this hunting application, and the banging steel to longer distances.

The super light rifles are not my cup of tea. Had a Kimber Montana in 308 which was nice to carry, but miserable to shoot.

So I can understand if that is an issue.

I sold the McWhorter, still have the Fieldcraft, love it and for now keep it. Its a shooter (for me anyway), light and balances perfectly. I will put the new Swaro Z6 on it and see how she does.

Buzz,

the Fieldcraft looks like a wonderful hunting rifle.

Lighter bullets such as 120's going faster might be better for hunting from the shorter barrel, especially 0 - 250.
