"Lightweight rifle recommendation"

I've decided to buy a new lightweight rifle for backcountry and sheep hunting applications. I'm considering a Fierce as an option along with having a full custom built. I'm in no rush so I want to make sure I do plenty of research. The max weight I want for bare rifle is 6.5 lbs and I'd prefer it closer to 6. Any and all ideas/opinions are appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I'd build one to your liking! 6lbs is pretty easy.
What calibers are you considering?

Which cartridges did u have? Recoil is a slight concern with a 300wby in such a light rifle.

Um...what is up with that target? is that a group or a pattern?

I have 3 rifles built by Lex ( Rifles Inc ), they are the best of the best in light weight rifles.

Malcom Forbes built some good ones too if you cold find one , but I'm not sure about his new NULA line I'd do some research before I bought one.

The two shots low right were him correcting his 200yd zero then he shot the group on the top left that's about 3/4"

If that rifle is as it looks a sub .5" gun, I'll be thrilled with it as it sits for now. If for some reason I'm not happy with it, I have a great stock and action to build off of for far less than it would cost buying a new action and stock. Win win!

Yeah man I was pumped when I found it. He seems like a good dude. Shipped the rifle the next day after I paid. Should have it sat!
