    This came in handy at the sniper class we both attended.

    Remember the last exercise of the day, hiking up the hill to take some long range shots. I carried my Recce, but I also had that bolt action in a back pack (I'm a glutton for punishment and wanted to try the concept). It was no fun at all hiking up the hill. But once in position, my recce had a malfunction that I wasn't able to address. The bolt action came out and I was able to keep making hits.

    I wouldn't recommend that set up for most things because along with other gear and water, it's just too much to carry. But it does work and it served a purpose for me on that day.

    Yondering, thanks for the heads up on the Howa. The main reason that I was looking at the Howa was that I can get a barreled action from Brownells, which makes building directly into a chassis rifle make a lot of sense vs. having to muck about rebuilding a stock rifle.

    Brent, god DAMN that looks good. My initial plan was just to get a Tikka T3X lite compact and be done with it, with the threat of maybe tossing it into a chassis as money allowed. Seeing what you did with yours gave me a shiver of jealously, and now that I've been confronted with what that plan could look like, I think that I have a mind virus.

    I think I'll start another thread alongside this one, as my questions are not so directly related to chassis per se.

    I have been looking at doing something to my Rem 7. This might be the ticket either a HS3 or LSS. I am leaning towards LSS for the biggest weight savings.

    What chassis systems will accept AR10/SR25 magazines? What chassis systems will accept Magpul's AICS magazines?
    I can confirm that XLR will take both AICS and Magpul magazines...
