    If you don't mind a few extra pack ounces, get a suppressor. Gemtech makes them in titanium. Put it in your pack. When your in place screw it on. Recoil is half that without one. Your ears will also thank you.
    My most favorable part is you stay on target through your optics easier with the barrel tip weighted.
    A suppressor and silencer are 2 diff things right?

    No. Just misconceptions from uneducated individuals. Same thing. Suppressor is the industry name. Silencer is a hollywood,layman term.
    Takes about six months on the form to get approved. Not hard, just a wait. Prices are not bad considering the benefits.

    And edited to say, legal to own in New Mexico...thats where your moving to right?

    I know mine is pretty boring, but I hunt everything with a Rem ADL 300WM. I have gone to a lighter 165 barnes for deer. I will take the 180gr to the more timbered areas where we elk hunt. It is all black with a syn stock. I don't have a break. I have done nothing but loosen up the factory trigger and put on a VXII 4-12. Bad is it only holds 3 down and 1 in the hole(I know it should only take one). I have never weighed it, but I can tell you it beats me to death to get it sighted in and I am bruised for a couple weeks.

    Silencer requires subsonic ammo

    No offense but I don't think the suppressor is right for me in this application. I'd rather have it on a 22 for squirrel hunting

    The Forbes is around $1,200.00 or so, you could still afford some good glass. You could build one cheaper on a Vangard or Howa action, but you couldn't build it lighter. You'll carry that rifle a lot more than you'll shoot it. That Forbes rifle is more accurate than most guys are capable of. My buddy has a Vangard, and it's one heavy mother.

    I am not much of a benchrest shooter, so I can't answer that, but, once sighted in. I have a gong at 300 yards the size of a sheet of paper. I ring the gong constantly all summer. Laying prone over a sand bag. So for me it puts the bullet where I want.

    also, a couple of years ago on a backpack dall sheep hunt. the guide had a Remington 700 xcr. he was cleaning the rust off after the week, my all weather, had no rust. It is just a good mountain rifle. not so pretty you won't use it as a walking stick, but not ugly either.

    Exactly why I want an all weather rifle.
