Re: Varmint Rifle weight
When choosing a varmint rifle based on weight, one must decide how the rifle is to be used. A walkabout rifle can turn out to be a bad choice if it is heavy, whereas a heavy rifle is fine for static benchrest-type shooting. I carry heavy BR rifles for walk-and-sit shooting, but I don't recommend planning to walk a long distance with a heavy rifle. But again, it is strictly up to the shooter.
