My 84M 308 weighs 6 1/4 lbs with Zeiss Conquest in Talley lightweight mounts. With a Leupold 2-7X I can keep it under 6 lbs scoped.

It is as accurate as anything from a mechanical standpoint with loads it likes. Mine is a little picky about what it shoots well but I've not found that to be a real handicap. It just means a little more experimenting.

I think they are an excellent choice for rough country hunting where the light weight really matters. But as an all around rifle I like something with a bit more weight. I shoot rifles in the 7-7 1/2 lb range a bit better than I do rifles closer to 6 lbs. But unless you're taking shots at 400+ yards a little less accuracy probably won't matter.
