    Sako or even the Tikka T3........from my experience they "tend " to be more accurate. IMHO

    I'll second the Sako or Tikka. Take a look at the Thompson Center Icon too. Very nice rifles as well.

    Don't know squat about this cheaper version of the Sako line. I can tell you that the M75/M85 line is sweeter than molasses. They reek of quality through and through.

    O.K. Colonel, enough debating, get out there & BUY something. I'm pretty much a Browning guy, though I do have 2 Sakos that are very nice. I say either will do, pick the one you like best.

    For the money, you'd be hard pressed to find a more accurate out of the box gun than the Tikka T3. Save your money and get the Tikka T3.

    My buddy bought an x-bolt(308) a couple months ago. The guy at the counter was 'raving' about the sako. If I remember correctly, both guns were the same price.

    Damn, you have been shopping for rifles for a while. LOL. You probably know more about the features than most of us. Have you got a chance to get out and shoot any rifles you are looking at?
    I don't own a Sako, but my Browning A bolt left handed Stainless stalker .270Win Kills Bambi and Porky the pig quite well.You could always go out to the rifle range in San Antonio and talk to some rifles owners and maybe even have an opportunity to shoot some rifles to see what you like.

    Minnow, Yeah ive been looking for a while and really want a browning but will probably get a remington 700 because the browning is more expensive. Thanks for putting up with me LOL...............................:wavey:

    You won't go wrong with either. They are both good rifles. I like the fact that my Browning has a removable box magazine and a short 60 degree bolt throw. The Remington definitely has the custom market niche. I'm sure you will be happy with either one and the 30-06 is an excellent cartridge.
