A little help... I am trying to build a packing/brush/scout/mountain" rifle. I would like it to be magazine fed, 18" medium barrel fairly accurate our to 300+ years and take a regular scope. This will be primarily used for hunting deer/hog in northern Texas, Oklahoma and Arkansas but I would like it to be flexible enough to serve as a hiking rifle as well. I would like to stick with the .308 as I already have other rifles in this chambering but the action does not matter. I like the BLR lever action (would have to cut down barrel) but I also have a Remington 700 (bit on the heavy side and no mag) that I like also. What do you all think I should do to get to where I want to be? All your help is really appreciated! V.
