I'm currently in the market for a short and fairly lightweight hunting rifle. Something in the 18-20" range for barrel length and sub 7.5 pounds unloaded without a scope. I've been lookin at the bergara b-14 ridge special purpose in 6.5 cm, it's got an 18 inch barrel and weights are 7 pounds. I've been searching around and it doesn't seem like there's many other options out there without building it. I'm curious to see what you guys have to say. I'm open to different calibers, however I'd prefer to stay away from 308 at the moment, although I could be convinced otherwise. Anyway, it's going to be a suppressor host (hense the shorter barrel) and I'm trying to keep the overall length down so it's easier to get in and out of the truck. Mostly hunting at or under 500 yards with the occasional 800 yard target shooting.
