I am thinking about buying a Rem VSSF 223 for vermin control. The rifle is about 8.5lb with a 26'' barrel. By the time I fit a scope, Bipod and Mod it is going to be up around the 11lb mark? Do you think I could get away w/o a mod. Muzzle flip should not be a problem with this calibre and semi heavy varmint barrel.
Your thoughts are welcomed, thanks
