I am trying to choose a .338 Win Mag right now but can't decide if I want a heavier rifle or a light one. Does anyone have preference for weight in the heavier calibers. I am thinking about a 7 3/4 pound model. This almost seems too heavy to me for doing a lot of walking, spot and stalk hunting. Then I look at models around 6 1/2 pounds and they almost seem too light for the recoil. I am leaning towards 6.5 pounds... the trade off in weight and recoil seems worth it to me. Any opinions?
