As I’m wanting this rifle to be a minimum of 10.5 to 11lbs.
You are a smart man. Weight is a good thing for shooting.

Don’t forget to include your scope and mount in your weight calculation.

Next, make sure you put enough weight in the butt of the stock. Too many folks put it all in the barrel. Barrel heavy rifles are a pain in the field. I would rather have a heavier gun than a barrel heavy, but lighter rifle.

Weight is a stabilizer in the field. It alone makes field accuracy easier.

A weatherby Mark V is 8 lbs. Add a std weight 18 oz scope and 8 oz mount and you are at 10 lbs. sling? Buttstock ammo holder? You are there.
