Currently own 2 light weight rifles; New Ultra Light Arms (NULA) in 300 Win Mag & 6.5 PRC respectively. Both NULA rifles weigh with scope at 6.5 pounds. NULA stocks are carbon and Kelvar fiber wrapped which are both amazing rigid and light. NULAs rifles are full-length bedded from the tang to the tip of the forend. The NULA 300 Win. Mag. has a 22 inch barrel and a muzzle brake. This rifle has been fired over 400 rounds. A 6.5 lbs. 300 Win Mag rifle results in 38 ft-lbs of recoil. DO NOT USE A BIPOD on light weight stock. the stock should only be rested on shooting bags or shooting sticks. I have never had any issues with NULA stocks which likely the best lightweight stocks ever designed and manufactured.
