I'll add that the Traditions have Lothar Walther barrels and the barrel and action are cerakoted. Again, I couldn't be happier with it.

Thanks, Dinny

I reload and shoot 348 Win, 358 Win, 6.5 Creedmoor, 6.5 Grendel, 30-06 Springfield, 300 BLK, 44 Mag, 357 Maximum, 9mm, 45 ACP, 45 Colt, 225 Win and 35 Rem

I have scads of 358 Winchester components but no 358 Winchester at the moment. The CVA Scout V2s in 243 are getting pretty reasonable on the auction sights. I may planning to buy one and send it to JES to convert to 358 Winny. However now Ruger has come out with the American Predator in 358 Win for $399. So now I'm in a quandary on the matter.

I really like the CVA Scout V2 platform. They are a little heavy but I guess that in that regard I should take the same advice that I am aways giving out and that is, "Suck it up Nancy"!

I have a .35 handi and my uncles .35 marlin lever. .35 cal was popular in Mich, good brush gun, good for black bears. Lots of cover in Michigan typically don't need long range rifles. Until just recently ammo was real hard to find for .35 now seems to be plenty.

The Scout V2 compact is not really that heavy. I have a couple stainless one in 35 rem and the other in 7mm-08. But my go to is the lowly $149 Hunter that began life as a 35 rem and is now a 356/358 Win. Shoots lights out, even after hand reaming it myself.

They are not that heavy unless you are an old man that plans to bear hunt in the mountains next spring. The Ruger is a pound and a half lighter with 5 shells in the gun. I can still bench press 250 lbs but my legs are the issue. I have titanium knees. That said I walked almost 300 miles last year during Iowa's pheasant season(so says my fit bit) but I wasn't carrying a pack or climbing up and down mountains.

Don't get me wrong, I love the Scout,Hunter and the Apex(I have one in 7mm-08) and it for sure isn't their fault that I'm getting old! The area that I am going has had some grizzly bear problems as of late so maybe having more than one shot might be a good idea too.

I went back and looked at some of them and they do vary in weight a good bit. The 450 bush is 8 pounds, but the 44 mag is only 5.8 pounds and both of them are the 41" overall length. I think the Compact version (38" overall) 35 rem I have is right at 5.5 without scope of course. However, the Ruger does sound lighter and may fit your need better.
