On the hunt for a .308 and came across Bergara. I had short-listed a few including the Tikka T3 varmint but looking the the Bergara, it seems to use a decent action and barrel, not what you'd normally expect at that budget. Value-wise, it hits the spot too. I'll be looking for mixed target/stalking use but am not interested in re-mortgaging for a top of the line European rifle nor buying budget American. The Tikka was at the top of my list until I saw the Begara. Anyone had any direct experience of these, and can offer some feedback from a quality and use perspective? I'll be replacing my vermin control rifle with Tikka .223, so that's sorted, it's just the 308 to source.
