Most of my deer/elk rifles weight with scope around 9lbs with synthetic stocks and that's the same weight as Kreiger barrel 35WhelenAI build on a Rem 700 action in a factory wood BDL stock.
Most of the guys I know that shoot synthetic stock aren't doing it to reduce weight they just don't want the upkeep of a wood stock or see their fancy wood get scratched. Can't blame them might be 15 below light snow.
