I see that the weight of the rifle has already been mentioned but don't ignore the balance. I've always preferred the balance point of my rifles to be slightly forward of the trigger guard, just where my leading hand is for standing shots. However, I noticed that I shoot better standing with my hunting rifle. This rifle has a distinctly nose heavy balance due to the semi-permanently fitted bipod. At the club I experimented with taking the bipod off and noted that although I preferred the feel my standing shots got worse.
