    It depends on flute depth and length etc... I lost just under 2 pounds from my latest barrel build with 8 flutes on a 30" barrel.

    Less than 1/2 a pound.

    Fluting is more for looks than to lighten a rifle barrel.

    Once a barrel is installed and chambered I do not recomend fluting it.

    Weight is a good thing as far as accuracy.
