    Poll - Please help me choose my first stalking rifle


    Please vote in my attached poll. I will publish the results for all to see.

    The criteria is as follows:

    1. You are about to buy your first stalking rifle. In addition the rifle will be used for informal target practise
    2. The calibre is .308
    3. You have no alternatives based on budget and availability - you can only pick one from the list

    Thank you in advance - the more that vote the better.

    Done - another Sako. I have no doubts about the quality of the other rifles, but in my mind both Mauser and Sauer are designed for hunting specifically in their setups. The Sako will suit better as a utility tool, with a better ability to customise should the need arise. It will also probably resell more easily should it be required.

    Wait a month or two, and get one of these. Looks like a decent all rounder, and may be my next purchase.
