Thread: Go on give me your opinion..........

  1. #1

    Go on give me your opinion..........

    Hi everyone, i'm in the market for a new rifle and have narrowed it down to either......

    1} Remington SPS Tactical.
    2}STEYR MANNLICHER, Pro Hunter 2 {Mountain}.

    Whatever one I decide on it will be in .223 and moderated.
    It will be used as a bit of a jack of all trades, foxes, general vermin and sometimes roe {I'm in Scotland}.

    I have never owned either a Remmy or a Steyr and fancy a change..........

    Go on give me your opinion as I need to order it on Monday and can't decide.

    Cheers guys, interesting........I always looked upon Steyrs as being really good quality rifles but the more I look into it, and hear different opinions i'm starting to wonder if their as good as I first thought.

    Can't coment on the Rem or Mountain But I have a SSG-69 P1 in 243 with a 7 x 50 Meopta and it out shoots me (easy I know!) holds under 1/2 groups at 100 yards of the bench I have even had the odd 1 hole group, so if you can take the weight I belive Sportsmans has an offer on them.

    I have at the present time a Remington 700 BDL in .243 and a Prohunter in .308, and would say both are good rifles and are capable of shooting sub 3/4" - 1/2" groups with homeloaded ammo.
    The choice would be personal taste really! Have look & handle the 2 of them then decide.

    Atb,

    would you not but yourself a tikka T3 lite or even a T3 tactical and enjoy your shooting .

    Given the choice of a .223 by Remmington, a modern Mannlicher and a Tikka I would buy a Sako in .243 every time! JC

    Lee,

    I would have thought if the rifle keeps losing zero it is unlikely to be a rifle performance issue, if its grouping well then maybe another reason optics, mounts etc No expert but just an instinct... Would be interested in other guys thoughts??

    A friend has a pro hunter and although i don't like the look and feel performance wise I cannot fault it and many on here have shot deer with it...
