Now to add something useful to the light weight theme:
I have two rifles that I would consider light weight. One I am just finishing up, built on a WSSM push feed action, with the action slabbed, and the bolt fluted and skeletonized. The barrel is a Mcgowan CM Winchester featherweight contour in 270 (270-243wssm), trimmed to 20". I am waiting on the stock, going blind magazine with a trimmed down aluminum trigger guard. I always wanted a short 270, and I am hoping the weight comes in under 5 pounds, but it depends on how the stock works out. I am also going to go with a thin harder rubber recoil pad. The pad can actually add/remove several ounces easily.
I also have a HS pro-hunter lite. 325wsm. The little rifle is pretty light, the barrel is a #3 contour with some pretty deep flutes, it looks to be on the edge safety wise, especially with this bore size. To some it is not considered a "light" rifle, but scoped with a vx3 4.5-14x40 in PRW rings, butler creek sling and with 3 rounds in the mag (mag not in the rifle, only placed on the scale) it comes in at 6 pounds 8 ounces.
If you pack my 338 edge (somewhere north of 20 pounds) around for a bit, the HS 325 feels like a toy BB gun.
