Actual LR Rifle Weight

I have searched and found rifle weights but I can not find one thread specific to this.

What does your LR (+ - 1000yds) hunting rifle weigh set up and ready to hunt? I realize 500yds is long range...but I am interested in the hunting rifles that are built for at least 1000yds. Please specify what it has and what it weighs on a actual calibrated scale.

Mine: 10.42 lbs
300 RUM
700 Rem Stainless Action
Rem Trigger
Lilja #3 Stainless at 26"
Magna Port "Magna Brake"
HS Precision Sporter Stock
Harris 13-23 Non Swivel Bipod
Buttler Creek Neoprene Sling
Leupold Standard Bases/Rings
Leupold Vari-X III 6.5x20x42 W/Target Turrets
4 rounds 190gr loaded cartidges.

    Will you give some specifics on what it is, and include the scope and ammunition in the total weight? Would be helpful to others when looking to build or consider weight for their rifle ready to hunt and pack around.

    Savage says 26", but unknown if that includes the brake. Sometimes they include the brake in the barrel length.
