Pretty sweet. Barrel is a little short though.

You said you like to stalk and you only shoot 200 yds- barrel is plenty long for that. And the 5.5 lbs makes it so you can carry it.

I have a sweet spot for a 24" barrel on my hunters. That may seem odd to some. But with the right set up, they are as fast as a 20"-16" to swing. Guess when your an odd freak of nature, they are normal.

Personally, in a gun that light I like the 7mm-08 better. Still plenty for deer size game but less recoil.
