LRH weight of your rig

Question, what are serious Long Range Hunter rifle weight these days ??

I have a remy 700 7mm mag with the works except barrel (still factory) Total weight so far 14.3lbs.

I have a ruger with custom barrel, custom work on stock. Weigh without scope 11.4Lbs

I carry them on every hunt and dont notice any ( oh its too heavy thoughts )... I enjoy less muzzle flip

Mine runs right at 12.5 pounds scoped with no ammo. I'm not overly excited about it as I would like a lighter rifle, but it is what it is.

Re: LRH weight of your rig

The only reason I ask is because I just had a 6.5 built at 12.5 lbs with a heavy palma barrel! Curious how a sporter barrel package weighs 14lbs!
