Default Lightweight Fast Shooter

Hello, here's another one of those annoying what-crossbow-should-I-buy-? threads.

Long-time hunter, new to crossbows. My main motivation is that it is the only type of weapon with which I can hunt fall turkey AND deer - at the same time!

I must say I'm a bit shocked by the prices at the high-end now. Still, I may well buy a TenPoint Vapor RS470 Xero. It sounds phenomenal. Yet, I know from many years' experience carrying firearms that hauling a 10 lb bow all day in the woods is going to be tiring. (I'm not young anymore.)

I can't have my cake and eat it too. I want SOTA performance - velocity - in a lighter bow. Can I get it? Can I get, say, 450 FPS in a bow that's ~8 lb scoped and ready to go?

2nd question: Other than that slick Garmin rangefinding scope, what's the best solution now for mounting a rangefinder on a bow so that it can be easily used manually?
