Call Melvin and have him build you a NULA. I have a freshly built 300wm with a Z5 and it’s crazy light but kills on both ends, even with Melvins stick design. It’s around 7lbs loaded as it sits.

11:56pm eastern time, I purchased the bergara premier mountain 2.0 in 300WM before the ball drop. Also I bought rings, bipod, and a scope. Will follow up with final weights and pictures of the setup.

Of course I’m expecting it to be a shoulder buster.

Happy new year and thanks for everyone’s help.

I just ordered a .284 win from Melvin a month ago , he said on right handed rifles he’s running about 8 months out and 6 months on left hand . Well worth the weight ! Call him up you won’t regret it , real easy guy to talk to and very knowledgeable about lightweight rifles !

If you want a shoulder breaker, I wouldn’t think of any thing less then 338 win, 375 H&H still be on the light side.

Yes these would certainly qualify, but the 300WM rifle at 6.4lbs should satisfy my shoulder busting desire.

Well that's a nice way to ring in the new year! Look forward to your review. The No. 3 barrel contour Bergara uses should really help the balance, aiming and front recoil whip of the rifle. Plus it should benefit you with load development getting a shot or two more before it gets hot. It'll be a handful with 200 grain pills...enjoy!

The package is finally complete. Thanks to a good deal deal on a used scope I finally selected a scope to finish this build. Below are the final weights and photos.

In the end, it's not truly an "ultralight", but it's 3.75lbs lighter than my setup last year with more magnification, better glass, and I'm expecting about half the average group size. I cant wait to get this to the range.

Final weight: (8lbs, 13.2oz) or (8.83lbs) or (141.2oz)
