Re: Lightweight deer gun
If ya can hunt with semi, get an AR. Last few years, we have been almost hunting with AR's exclusively mainly because they carry so nice on 4 wheelers & snowmacines with a 2 point sling and with 16 inch barrel very short in length. All my kids started with 556's chasing wolves & caribou. My 6.8 spc is like a 22, recoil and usually I have a 10 round clip. We killed bear, caribou, wolves, lynx, pretty much everything except moose so far with the 6.8s. They are around 800 bucks, never regret getting one.
