Can someone give me an idea what the weight difference is between a 24” Remington varmint and a 20” Proof Sendero light?

Thanks

20" Proof Sendero Light CF= 2lbs 8oz to 2lbs 12oz uncut and unchambered depending on bore diameter.

24" Proof Sendero Light CF= 2lbs 13oz to 3lbs 2oz uncut and unchambered depending on bore diameter.

24" Proof Sendero CF = 3lbs 5oz to 3lbs 11oz uncut and unchambered depending on bore diameter.

24" Remington Varmint steel = 4lbs 5oz to 4lbs 9oz uncut and unchambered depending on bore diameter.

24" Bartlein #3b fluted = 3lbs 8oz to 3lbs 12oz uncut and unchambered depending on bore diameter.

24" Bartlein #1 Featherweight = 2lbs even depending on bore diameter. But beware the barrel whip.

Keep in mind that a #5(0.700" at the muzzle) Lilja with 8 spiral flutes will be lighter than a similar length Proof.

If you're not looking for an absolute featherweight, Proof is going to cut about a pound compared to traditional barrel profiles.
