Thanks for posting that up Nathan, I enjoyed the shoot the breeze on the podcast. I hope you do get to do a part 2.

I had to laugh about the comments near the end about the gun weights and 9.5 lb being a good average weight. I was just reading a thread about guys bragging up their ultralight weight rifles (from a big name manufacturer that you refuse to work on) that come in around 6lb scoped. I've never shot a rifle that light but I really do wonder about those guns. Everybody atleast on the internet, claims to love them, how light they are and how they all shoot into half MOA supposedly and with perfect comfort... seems to defy the laws of physics. I wonder if you get a lot of phone calls or emails about guys asking for help with their 6lb WSM flyweight rifles??

I really thought my scoped Tikka T3 243 was lighter than the 8lb scoped my bathroom scale says it is. It seems pretty light.
