I"m in the market for a new rifle, looking for something light and fairly compact. I put my hands on the Savage model 16 lightweight hunter today and was pretty impressed. It seemed to balance better than I though it would being so light. I do wish it had a 22" barrel instead of the 20" but I guess the difference in velocity it pretty minimal. I'm looking for something in 260, 6.5 creedmoor, 7mm-08, or 308. Does anyone have any experience with the Savage lightweight or any suggestions for anything similar? I'm also looking at the Tikka T3. I found a pretty good deal on a T3 hunter with the wood stock in 260 i'm considering. Don't really want wood, but the price is almost too good to pass up.
