The 30” full bull contour in 375 Cheytac weighs 6.3 pounds from proof I believe. HCA has a tactical contour I like that rings in at 4.5 pounds. So by saving that almost two pounds it gives me room for a heavier stock and other things.I am about to finish up a 300 prc with proof 24” no taper. This rifle will be sub 10 lbs with a vortex razor hd. I understand you are not liking the contour options so that is why I mention the overall weight of this rifle. In fact my 20” proof light build I did a few months ago is 8.5 glass and suppressor.
