    Hi jim,if you buy a sako or tikka you can't go wrong,personally from recent experience I would buy remy that has been customised ie rebarrelled as the add ons are endless and you can build yourself the sexyist rifle ever to your own spec,regards swarovski

    The standard blued hunter Sako will do you very nicely. I have an older 75 varmint in the same calibre, I love it to bits but although nice on the range the heavy barrel is an unnecessary encumberance out in the field.

    Consider Heym far better than the new sako 85 IMHO (and most people who don't own an 85) If you handload, a 7x57 will be as good if not better with heavier bullets http://www.yorkguns.com/rifle_search...?stockno=54555

    Hi Swarovski

    Im leaning more towards a sako I'm not really a fan of anything Remington as I can't be doing with throwing money at a rifle to make it shoot I've heard of a few accuracy issues with Remington
