    A Bergara B-14 Ridge is available in 308 Win with a 22" threaded barrrel, with a weight of 7.9 pounds.
    I've never handled one, nor known anybody that owns a Bergara, but they have a pretty good reputation.

    It looks like dmd08 beat me to the recommendation.

    There's a Howa barreled action in the exchange right now with a 26" .308 threaded barrel. Put it in a stock of your choice.

    T\C Compass is plenty accurate. Light profile barrel and threaded. I have one in 308 and another in 223.

    Remington 700 SPS Tactical AAC-SD .308 and I'd swap out the stock for a Grayboe Terrain or something similar.

    Thin threaded barrel is tough for out of the box hunting rifles. But I would recommend the Browning Hell's canyon speed in the 22" 308. Checks all your boxes and these rifles shoot very well from my experience. You can order a thread adaptor to go from the 13x.75 RH to 5/8x24 for your most common muzzle devices and or direct thread suppressor. The stock and texture is really awesome. Short throw bolt. Cerakote. Detachable mags. Threaded barrel. Fluited barrel. Light. Atacs camo. And they hammer.

    I put this together this week after buying a 700ADL tactical. Its at 10.8lbs with bipod, sling and everything else. Its manageable and could be lightened with a better stock. So far it shoots good, starting load development this week. Dumped the trigger, stock and what not. Dropped in a BC stock, and pre-recall trigger, and floorplate.

    My 3 year old 20" AAC-SD, with a Gen 1 PST 4-14, B&C LRT stock, and strap on cheek pad, is well beyond the lightweight class at 10.2 pounds.

    It does shoot damn well, though...possibly better than my same same aged 700 XCR TLR. I'm still developing loads for them.

    I would have no reservations picking up a T/C or Browning that fit my requirements.

    My Tikka T3x is very accurate and very light. Iíd feel good about recommending one.

    Do you mind defining light?

    10.2 lbs is too much. Iíd like to go as light as possible. Guys out west donít drop game beyond 300 often.

    And fortunately the Russians havenít invaded yet.

    Can a gunsmith thread a thin barrel or is this a no go?
