Has anyone put their CZ 550 magnum on a diet? I've a 375 H&H in a factory kevlar stock with a Swaro Z6i that weighs in at 11lbs with a montana sling and 5 rounds in the gun. I carried it fairly comfortably in Africa in 2017 for a good distance daily with little issue. I'd like to bring it to Newfoundland this fall for moose, but I'm concerned about the weight over (from what I've seen and heard) more uneven terrain. What could one reasonably expect to reduce the weight of this rifle to with a stock swap? Barrel was cut to 23" already when Wayne at AHR worked on it in 2015ish.

Factory walnut stock is the lightest I have seen. In hte service, the kevlar stocks on the M24 were crazy heavy. Going from kevlar to walnut will have to save some weight.
