    How about:
    typical terrain
    typical wind conditions
    typical shooting distance
    typical carry distance
    barrel specs
    bullet specs
    brake specs
    typical game ( elk or prairie dogs)
    typical transport (feet or jeep).
    typical shooting style (offhand, bipod, bench).

    To me rifle weight only indicates the practicality of carrying a rifle, and even that depends on the terrain. Of my various rifles weight says little about their useful range or accuracy or even delivered energy.
