    .308 question

    Hi there does anyone use a sako trg 22 rifle for a stalking ?
    Or reasons why sorry if it sounds like a silly question !

    Great rifle if you want to carry one, have had both a 22 and 42, excellent accuracy from both. Ok for highseat work I guess.

    when I first started I used my trg21 , great rifle

    use whatever you like , you have to carry it !

    I thought that the trg 21 was quite light for a dedicated sniper system personally?
    Right where's those stones , I'll start !

    I have a TRG-S which is the sporting version of the much heavier TRG. I suspect it is the fore runner of the 75/85 series; it is an excellent piece of kit.

    I have a 85 varmint in .308 which is an excellent rifle and one that I bought with the dual intention of using it for stalking and range use. It is heavy and while I carried the rifle when hill stalking in Scotland without too much trouble previously following illness I am now considering changing it for something lighter. I am now of the opinion that a range rifle and a stalking rifle are two entirely separate beasts and you will suffer in one way or another by trying to use the same rifle for both uses.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    I use mine a fair amount but it does depend on the shooting task at hand. It has a short barrel (18inches) which makes it quite handy in a high seat, it can have a folding stock which makes it easy and discree to transport. (You can take the fixed stock off quite quickly) I would be quite happy to use it or it's predecessor an AIAW for hill stalking again but you do have to be fit. The downside is that woodland stalking requires a quick mount onto sticks or rest so the Sauer or blaser is a better option. I did look at the Tikka tactical before I purchased the TRG but a cancelled Jordanian Contract one was just too tempting. The short barrel struggles after about 800 yards but it is very accurate at deer shooting ranges.
