    best rifle

    hello all i am abit puzzled as to what rifle to buy i was think of getting a sako 85 hunter laminated .308 but your suggestions would be great?

    If you can afford it thats a cracking rifle. HGet a good scope ontop, thats what you want to spend your money on. Anything like Schmidt and Bender, Swarovski, Zeiss, Meopta, Leica ect. Decent German/European glass.

    I got a second hand Sako 85 synthetic / stainless in 6.5 x 55, it's a cracking looking rifle and shoots great. Prefers Federal Power Shok to Remington Core-Lokt (both 140 gr) but you may have to have a play to see what your's prefers
    Better barbarity than boredom

    Nothing wrong with that rifle and I would be surprised if anyone on here said any different! It's only limitation will be the wiggley link behind it. Yes it will like some loads more than others but that's up to you to play with. Good luck with your purchase and your play time with it too!

    Just about to chop my .243 Browning xbolt in for a sako 85 - as far as I can tell it's one of the best rifles out there!

    Sako is OK.

    I find a 30.06 more flexible......(.....for reloading)
