Can you please help!
I have read many of the threads on here about first rifles but I am in need of some expert advice and benefit from the SD collective wisdom.
I already have a scope.
My budget is 1000 pounds.
For that I would like a complete setup of accurate (1" @ at 100M will do....dont need to drive nails in at a quarter mile) rifle, bipod, moderator and mounts in .308 (and only .308 please).
I've tried Howa (and its a cheap date), granted it will be a tool to do the job, but it just doesnt 'feed the rat'. That little techy bit inside me that admires well thought out and tooled engineering. If I buy one I will have it sold again in 12 months.
Have shot and thoroughly admire Sako 75 (playing hard to get) and new Sauer 101 (an expensive date).
Doesnt need to be new. Does need to be carried up and down munro's but I don't like skinny birds like the Tikka Lite, prefer a bit of meat on the bones. Don't mind if it requires a bit of TLC.
I'm thinking Heym 21, Sako 75 (if I could find one on budget), Sako 591 and A2.
Barking up the right tree, just barking........or any better ideas?
And if there is something in .308 the back of your safe that needs a new home...............
