Weight of your long range hunting rig

I'm just curious what's everyone's long range hunting rig weighs. You always hear people complaining about weight for a hunting rifle and I have never been bothered by it although it is awesome when you get to carry something light walking all day. What's your long range rig weight set up. Do you have a back up lightweight for carrying?

My rig, with bipod and sling, weighs in at 10 pounds 4 ounces. It's not heavy, but it is not a mountain rifle either.

Ethan Parke........roped the deer in 1953. Put tags in his ears turned him loose then shot him in 1955. Always liked this pic
The story was told to me by his wife who owned the little motel we stayed at on a deer hunt in Malta Idaho about 17 years ago...... Youll never see that again. Just a cool pic of Idaho deer huntin history
