    hi.Was wondering what the opinions were on the T3 supervarmit vsSako 75 Action 4 Finnlight Synthetic Stainless both rifles are in .243win
    I have been looking at both, but don't know a lot about either. Just what I have read.

    Crikey mate weight wise you are going from one extreme to the other. Both very good rifles but you are going to have to identify what your actual shooting needs are before you decide.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    Speaking as someone who has a Sako Varmint rifle and has previously owned Tikka stalking weight rifles, if it's mainly for stalking go for the Sako. However if you want to shoot more than the occasional target go for the Tikka.

    I am beginning to regret buying my varmint rifle for stalking but there again I do use it a fair bit on the range and it shows it's worth then. Saying that I did carry the Sako around Scotland for a week a couple of years back and didn't notice the extra weight at that time but have since been nocked back a bit with illness so would appreciate a little less weight to stalk with (both me and the rifle).

    I'd go Sako 75 everytime... Rock solid action to rebarrel in future

    Check the action though - is it definitely .243, as that's an Action III, not IV
    Sako 75 6.5x55mm-Z6i 3-18x50. MauserM12 .308-SIII 6-24x50. Beretta 690 III Field 12b.

    I would have that Sako finnlight over the T3 all day long. I would really want to pay about £100 less for it unless you can get optilock rings and bases chucked in or do a deal on some ammo or something. You are really only paying £400 for it as it will always have a residual value of £400 or so even without a stock or barrel!
