View Full Version : Different 308

01-11-2009, 8:45 PM
I'm looking for a different 7.62 bolt action target rifle. I already have an FN SPR and some Remingtons, mostly kevlar stocked stuff. Already have Savage also. Looking for a "different" brand and wondering what else is out there. My "gotta haves" on it are a wood stock, heavy barrel and adjustable trigger.

Anyone got anything in the "other brands'?

Factory? Custom?

For factory: Sako 85 Varmint? Has a set trigger. For a cheaper option, Tikka T3 in wood?

Bunch of custom options for around $1700+

Cooper Montana Varminter? Yeah, yeah their president supported the Democrats, but he was canned.

CZ 550 Varmint:

T/C Icon:

The Icon doesn't have a heavy barrel, but they are supposed to be very accurate out of the box.

Kimber Tactical: .308. 300 Win, 223...
Controilled round feed, great fit and finish. accurate.
Custom quality, gun store (sort of) prices.

You can get a disgustingly accurate Tango 51, factory guaranteed .25 MOA I s*** you not. Prepare for sticker shock:D

I just got rid of my CZ 550, that's what prompts the new buy (the CZ with rings & "marginal" scope sit at Castro Valley for $675.00, BTW) and actually, the Kimber or Tikka sounds like a good idea, just not the tac models. I'll check out Tikka & Sako, have heard good things about them. I have a Sako STR in 300 Win Mag with a 7 Rem Mag barrel and like the quality.

I want to go factory, not too much over $1,000.00 or so. I thought I'd like the set trigger, but it's not for me. The CZ has it and I almost never use it on my others.

Yeah, I know what you mean.

I like tactical stocks for weight, ease of handling, weather proof nature, etc. but for a varminter, I prefer nice wood. I like flat fore end stocks though, not sporter type wood stocks.
