Courses and over seas are very different. As of now most everyone operates out of a camp unless your in a fob. And mainly on patrol you will have your battle rattle plus day bag. Id say ammo and extra crap about 50 lbs on patrol... Unless it's a long one and you're going for days and then require your ruck. On pathfinder our rucks were anywhere from 80-130lbs... Wet. And that's worst case senario. Over seas I stayed in a camp and was with recce 2vp. And only carried my day bag max weight 50 lbs cause of ammo and water. Other than that it's just depends in your mission or role over seas and also where you are. Day or night. Everything. It all depends

Also to add about the ruck comfort.... On ppf we would wrap socks or foam around the shoulders and upper back area and it helped big time in comfort. Sounds gay but worked. And also exchange your Ruck for a size small... It helped in betting it up higher on my back In patrolling and alleviated lower back pains
