Looking to put together a light weight rifle...

Anybody that can post suggestions for building a light Encore in 7-08. Scope choices, stock choices, sources, etc. Was planning to go with a 23" barrel of light contour, lightest stock I can find with a good soft recoil pad and a scope on the order of a compact 2-7 or a fixed 6 power. Wanted for my general walkaround hunting rifle for Antelope and Deer.

What weight do you think I can come up with? Would 6.5 pounds loaded with web sling be possible without buying kevlar stock and carbon wrapped custom barrel.

Any other caliber suggestion?

light encore

I think you are looking at a full custom job. And even then 6.5#, might be wishful thinking. There are ways to shave ounces off no doubt. But it is going to cost $$$. It all depends on how money you want to spend. I know these comments don't help much, but this might. Call a maker/smith, such as, eabco, or ssk, and ask what is the lightest setup they can do for you. O. :D
