    Well, they're both in the heavy side for what I want to carry hunting. But it's you carrying it, not I.

    The Sako A7 Roughtech Pro looked like a better option to me. Or the Browning X-Bolt Pro / Pro LR.

    The Browning x bolt pro would be a great choice

    The only disadvantage to a heavy gun is weight.

    This is true and that weight really only becomes a big deal if you are hiking straight up a mountain. Flatish ground or rolling hills, or horse truck or ATV hunting - heavy rifles are no big deal.
