I shot PRS style matches for years with chassis systems (ran Rock Solid chassis) before they became all the rage, and I took up hunting after dialing back on competitions so I’m more comfortable with them.
The MDT LSS is a relatively lightweight setup, so it’s what I run on my hunting gun.
I picked up a folding Carbon XLR, I really like it. 99% of my shooting experience was with a traditional shaped bolt action rifle. I probably should have purchased the adjustable non-carbon butt stock, as it turns out I don't like hiking with the gun strapped to the back of my pack.
I haven't hunted in cold weather with it, but since it would be carried in a gun bearer, I'm not as concerned about the cold aspect of it.
I'm very comfortable with it off-hand and prone, along with various field positions. I'll likely be buying a second XLR.
Have a Weatherby Vanguard Backcountry Barrel and action chambered in .300 Wby Mag, dropped into a MDT LSS XL Gen 2. Love the way it shoots and the folder I have on it. Just haven't hunted with it yet. I'll vote when I ruck it around the National Forest a bit.
I like my chassis guns but it totally depends on the hunt. If there's a high percentage of a long shot I'll pack that chassis every time. If majority of shots will be semi short shots then I'll just pack my carbon 308 traditional stock.
