    Weighing a rifle

    When weighing a rifle for competition classification, is the weight of the rifle calculated/recorded with the scope attached and the empty magazine inserted or is the weight calculated/recorded with both the scope and the magazine removed from the rifle?

    Rifles must meet weights in, all up, as shot condition.

    You shoot with a scope and if you shoot and load from a magazine, you weigh full up as mentioned.
    Remember a feller once that attached a plastic bullet box under his drop port. He missed weight having that box plus the shot brass.

    Thanks for your answers. I suspected the answer but just needed some backup. Thanks again.
