No idea. This rifle, factory other than bedding and trigger job, with the Monarch scope is barely under 8 lbs.



Remington's website lists the 7mm Rem Mag BDL at 7.5 lbs and my M7 at 6.5 lbs. Add your scope and rings/bases, you're going to be 9-10 lbs depending on your scope. That's still before anything else hung on it.

26" Senderos are listed at 8.5 lbs. I'm not saying it can't be done, but you're going to have to look for lightweight parts everywhere else to put that profile/length barrel and still come at 9 lbs or less with a scope on it. That's assuming the 8-9 lbs stated as the weight limit was to include a scope. I think that weight is not attainable with that barrel, scope mounted, bipod, and sling without fluting everything and really going lightweight on everything you possibly can.

And to clarify, I'm talking total weight you're carrying around including everything mounted/hung on it as you'd take it to hunt/shoot.

Re: custom barrel advice

Yep, it all adds up pretty quick especially with some of my scopes which are 2lbs... .
