9.5lbs? No thank you, especially when it just shoots regular black powder or subs and NOT smokeless. I thought the point behind this one was to shoot smokeless? May as well stick with the original rem 700 rebarrels that do shoot smokeless if you are going to drop that much coin.

I've only had one Rem 700 CF, and it was pretty heavy. It was a wood stock though. That's the one you refinished for me.

I've got three 700s. Best action there is IMO. One is in a synthetic stock chambered for .338-06 imp. and is fairly light. So is my wood-stocked .35 Whelen.
The other is a Safari grade in .375 H&H mag. and is fairly heavy. Even with the extra weight and reduced handloads, I can't take the recoil very well.

That gun will weigh 10.5 pounds with scope and sling.   i don't need another heavy muzzleloader.   My Encore causes severe butt drag after a day of hunting.
