    My Weatherby's are set to 15 ounces. My Rugers to 32 ounces. Around 1 pound is just right for me.

    1 lb to 20 oz in most cases. It gets a bit cool here in Montana during hunting season and the hands can get a bit stiff and cold, anything much lighter and your taking the risk of that trigger slipping before you are ready at least in cold weather.
