as can be expected there are different rifles for different locations
those rifles have differences in cal, weight etc
how far do you walk with your rifle?
so guys ATV in close some guys walk mountains for a week etc
just seeing if there is a trend of rifles getting heavier just like they are in the precision world
15 years ago a "tactical rifle" weighted 15 lbs, now a PRS gun weighs 22
that PRS increase is because its part of the game, but guys hunt with those rifles as well
north east usa NY, the walks arent more than a mile at best if at all so rifle weight isnt really a issue unless someone is lazy
figured id ask
I am old, big and fat. Going uphill is not my favourite thing to do. Out here this one mile walk might end up being a 30 degree up slope with uncertain footing, so I go light whenever I can. My hunting rifle that I also use for precision oriented stuff a lot of the time, with a scope and sling clocks in at nine pounds. That's the beauty of the Fix and Razor HD-LHT.
