I would say the average weight would be around 12 to 14 lbs, but have know weights as little as 9lbs and as heavy as 17lbs. Usually a laminate stock will add a lot of weight. Some people like front heavy personally I like a bit more on the back end.
The Pope HW97 V-Mach. Gary Cane Laminate stock. Leupold Competition 40 mag Mildot.
The Smiler. Walther LGU. WE Laminate stock. Leupold Competition.
The Dark Destroyer. TX200 MK3. Leupold Competition 40 mag.
Pro-Sport. Warren Edwards Blue Laminate stock. Bushy 8-32x40.

Get along to a club, and have a chat with their club instructor about standing techniques. It's not easy to give advice from a keyboard as so much will depend on the shape of your own body chassis, but a good instructor will be able to give you valuable pointers.

We're just a relatively short drive west from you so feel free to pop in to the club. There really is nothing better than 'in person' conversation. I'm not sure about 'posh mans HFT' though, most of the FT clubs I know are rough as a badgers a**e.

Thanks for the further advice guys.

Rob- would love to come and have a go, how do I go about that then?
