Are my weight estimates on target??
I have all the parts on order or in hand for my first ever build. The wait for the remainging parts are going to kill me. Anyway I'm building a little bit of an oxymoron - a light weight long range mountain rifle. I have tried to balance the two and get as much of the best world out of both. Heres what I have and the estimated weights:
Est Wt. Oz.
Remington 700 LA
(everything but trigger)
Lilja - #4 Fluted 25"
Mcmillan Edge Tech
Zeiss Conquest 6.5-20x50
Total 141.83 oz. w/Scope 8.86 lbs w/o Scope7.50lbs.
Am I off base on my estimations? I've researched them pretty hard so I think I'm close. Just looking for someone to review my work. Am I on target?
