I am in a dilemma and i have myself to blame
Going back to a 6.5x55 as i have mentioned elsewhere (dont ask) but now it gets complex. I would ideally like a synthetic stock
T3 - New / recent second hand (can afford to be a bit more picky) around £700
M695 stainless synthetic (at a dealers now) - Already have a wood / blue 595 and like it. dealer assures me is excellent condition (will check though) but not bore scoped yet. £550
Sako 75 - Will likely be a wait and more expensive than the first two and unlikely to be synthetic. Likely to be around £700
I like the idea of a new rifle as its a clean sheet (been stung before) but at the price of the 695 i will be able to re stock it for the cost of a sako / new t3 with a better synthetic stock than standard.
I quite like the T3 action etc but the synthetic stock is a bit toy like although the forend seems to be more rigid than most factory ones
Any ideas / feedback?
Im not in a rush and stil havent sold my .243
