First time for me posting in the shooting forum but have learned a lot over the last few years so I thought makybe you guys could give me a little advice. I have a Rem 700 BDL with DM in 7MM Rem Mag that weighs around 8.5lbs with scope. I have a few other rifles but this is what I mainly use. I would like to shed some weight off of this gun maybe a pound. I thought it would be simple. It currently has a synthetic stock that I thought I could swap for a lighter stock. Well since it has a DM most "off the shelf stocks" will not fit. Guess Remington must not sell enough of them for the larger after market companies to make 1 to fit. I did find some more custom stocks that will reduce the weight but I don't want to spend $500 just to drop some weight when really there is nothing wrong with the stock that I have now. So now I am looking into getting my 24" barrel fluted. I found an outfit that will flute my barrel which will reduce the weight by about 8oz for $110. For another $110 they will flute my bolt and shave the action to save another 3-5oz. This seems like a better option plus I think it will make the balance of the gun a little better by reducing the weight of the barrel which is a little front heavy. Any other options I missed and are there any issues with reduced accuracy of fluting a barrel that is already rifled. I see some gunsmiths typically flute barrrels before they are rifled. Thanks for any input.
