That weight wouldn't cut it hunting here in the Montana Rockies. My Rem. 700 Mountain Rifle weighs just a little over seven pounds with a 3-9 scope, but that sounds like it could be a great deer rifle in the east... or some place that's flat.

The DPMS Compact Hunter 308 is 7.75lbs. Pretty good looking rifle too.
