Thread: New rifle

    New rifle

    Want a new rifle in 30-06 Started off looking at a tikka but am now looking at a sauer 101 classic xt/ mauser m12 extreme or maby stretch to a 202 classic xt. I have a 202 in 243 was just wondering about the 101 vs m12. Any thoughts about rifles not caliber!!

    Why not get pietasvenatores on here to build you one?

    The Sauer 101 has a friction fit barrel, so very difficult to rebuild off the action if you want to. This is also likely to have an effect on re-sale value as they are, in effect, disposable.

    Not sure about the M12. I wouldn't be surprised if it's the same. That seems to be the trend these days.

    I had a Tikka T3 Lite SS in .30-06, which I won in a drawing ( wanted a .270 Win ), and it was a great rifle. I finally sold it to a friend who was filling all his mule deer and elk tags with it. I would have kept it, had I not owned about a dozen other .30-06s. The T3 was really accurate with everything, and especially the Hornady and Sierra 165 and 180 gr loads for my other rifles. I didn't notice the recoil, which is surprising for a rifle weighing 7 lbs with scope and loaded.

    I have a Sauer 200 in .308 and love it, too.

    For the .30-06, get a 22 or 24-inch barrel and don't chop it. It is just a matter of your taste, but I like my Steyr M, older Rem 700s, Win M-70 and 1903 Springfields. Some of them are hefty, some lighter. Just pick a rifle for your style of hunting; the .30-06 has enough loads to accommodate anything from a Sako Stutzen to a Winchester 1885 single shot with a 28-inch barrel.
