PredadAR- 7.75lb
Leupold ultralight 3-9x33 - 0.61lb
DNZ 1piece picatinny mount - 0.5lb
PMAG loaded with 150gr hunting ammo- 1.5lb

That puts you just over 10lb for a loaded and scoped semi auto .308.

That's very doable! GIs carried 10 pound Garands all over the planet in WWII.
My preferred long range bolt gun is just under 11 pounds.
My M1A is right at 13

A darn good padded sling will make a 10 pound rifle feel like 7
