The stalking rifle is typically light and handy. Weight range from 5.5 to 7.5 lbs. I use smaller actions, light weight barrels, calibers cover a wide range but recoil must be considered. The intent with this style is to provide a comfortable rifle for extended carry while still hunting or covering rugged terrain. Light weight and fast handling are primary concerns; slim trim stock styles work best. Many options can be had while creating your perfect stalking rifle.
