In this case it would be very hard to bring a 7lb 6 oz gun up to weight, especially by placing weight in two spots on the gun. It goes back to the broomstick and the bricks example. If you put the two bricks in the middle of the broomstick it feels whippy, if you put the two bricks on each end, very heavy. It all comes down to where and how you place the weight.

That said most good shooters are very particular about how the gun feels, and take measures by adding or removing weight from various places on the gun to perfect the feel. They do this by adding lead tape or barrel weights along the barrels, changing barrel length or contour, placing lead in the forend and or stock, changing the wood for heavier or lighter wood, back boring barrels to get a lighter feel, removing weight from the stock, changing the tubes, etc. This is done by everybody, so don't feel you have to shoot what came in the box because you don't and nobody does.
