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.
