    Real weight difference

    I know there is a noticeable difference between my Finn and the Walnut model of the same caliber in standard length[ medium] but just how much real weight difference is there between an 85 Finn and a standard Stainless synthetic of the same caliber
    The web site gives only 0.1Kg difference between say the 300 wsm in both
    This isn't really much so was wondering if it's actually more than that
    Any one with comparable models.

    100grams doesnt seem much for the difference of alloy vs ss bottom metal and a 2 inch shorter fluted barrel?
    I wonder if the stocks weigh different.

    I've owned both the 85 finnlite and stainless in 300wsm. I couldn't really tell the difference,and currently run the stainless. The finnlite did look better I rekon.

    The website is wrong. My Finnlight was like .2kg lighter than the website.

    Weights on the net & in magazines have a very nasty habit of being a little or alot inaccurate, some people have special scales

    Like velocities etc the only way to truly know is to either completely trust the person that told you or check it for yourself.....the latter can get pretty expensive but very rewarding...
