Since we're talking about deer hunting, in this thread, itsy-teensy groups are irrelevant. Or claims thereof.
From the opening post (remember that?), the salient question was, "Thus, from an accuracy and recoil standpoint, wouldn't the heavier rifles be better for your average stand hunter?"
From the standpoint of needed accuracy for a deer rifle, no a heavy rifle is no better than a light rifle.
As to an opinion about the weight, that seems to me to be a personal choice.
