    It ways 13.7lbs according to the bathroom scale.

    Yes the 300gr's do put a smile on your face.

    Oh and the coal is 4.13, lots of room for powder.

    The gun looks like it turned out very nice. Love the photos with the mountains in the background. Can't wait to see the next photos of the rifle leaning up against your trophy !!

    I also like the rifle and the scenery, I've never actually seen snow. We don't get it here in my part of Australia.
