You can spend a lot of money trying to shave 1/2 pound.
Personally, speaking as an aging hunter that has hunted a lot of deer, elk, and pronghorn over the years, I would focus on getting myself in top condition and not worry much about a few ounces of rifle. But then again, I realize this is not a fitness forum but a Tikka forum. The limbsaver recoil pad is real nice.
As an aging hunter that has not hunted all that much, I would agree with all of your points. One other thing that might help is a good sling that doesn't slip as you walk. I have Ultimate Rifle http://specialtyoutdoorproducts.net/RifleSlings_Shotguns_Pinckney_MI.html slings on all of my rifles.
