    I like a light rifle as much as anyone but, most people will tend to shoot a heavier rifle a little better especially offhand. Most of my rifles are around 8.5 lb ready to go

    375H&H 7.5 to 8lb with a forgiving synthetic stock or a very good fitting wooden stock. 416 Rigby 9lb and a forgiving synthetic stock or very good fitting wooden stock.

    358RUM 8lb, anything under this then 7lb is OK but find most come in closer to 8lbs.

    My .416 Taylor is 10.3 lbs ... my 376H&H is right at 10 lbs...

    Most of my other hunting rifles weigh between 7.5-8.5lbs...
