Hello I'm looking for some advice,
I've recently returned to shooting and will shortly be applying for an FAC. My requirements are for
Scenario a. varmint rifle for fox and target
deer stalking rifle
b. rifle for target and deer ( if it will also cover fox then so much the better )
I'm likely just to get one as my preference is a sako 85 and they seem a bit pricy. I've been warned off a varmint barrel due to weight but I see that sake 85 is about 8.5 lb with a laminated stock in .308. I currently lug a HW 80 around the field and that is 8.5 lb un scoped so i'm not all that concerned with a sub 9 lb combo.
Second request is for scope suggestions Ideally 4-12 x 40 and dependable. sub £350 is the budget.
