I'm shooting a sendero in 7mm mag. I just put my rifle on my bathroom scale and it weighs 12.5 lbs. That is with a Leupold Mark 4 LR/T M3 scope, leupold QRW rings and bases, harris bipod, comb pad, shell holder w/5 loaded rounds, anti cant device
, 3/4" shooting sling w/swivles and a bit of duct tape. That is ready to hunt.
I carry it all over the place during deer season. It gets heavy, but it isn't unrealisitic.
