According to Lilja, my stainless steel barrel weigh around 9.5 to 10lbs with 1.35" full barrel all the way to 36". The cal. is 338. Yours would probably around 5-6lbs. Someone else might give your more specific weight.

I'm not sure if the blue and the SS are similar weight of the same size???

pacnor's web site has a weight estimating calculator for custom contours. I can not attest to it's accuracy but should give you an Idea.

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
