Well sounds like you've done your homework and have it figured out.

Just keeping my options open! Really like that Savage Ultralight by 7lbs for a long action from 5.5 for a short action. Why such a weight addition?

They probably use beefier/longer barrels for the magnum cartridges that will be found on the long actions and then they use the same magnum contours for the non magnum cartridges so they can use the same stock.
It's all about parts commonality...

synthetic stocks don't swell when wet, or scratch when dropped.

A synthetic stock will stretch,twist,bend,break, always touch the barrel . A Composite or Fiberglass stock is the best choice, A properly sealed wood stock is superior to that of a Synthetic stock. A laminated wood stock is just under a Composite/Fiberglass stock the only downfall here is they are heavy compared to a composite /Fiberglass stock. Never use a Synthetic stock if you can help it.

Picked up my MK111 yesterday & looked at a Tika T3 blued .308. Buddy just bought a Ruger American .308, the Tika felt much better. Now I'm thinking...Uh oh.

Might want to check out Eurooptic.com , AJ is great. Shoot him an email to see if he can get you want you want. Sako allows for a yearly special order for distributors. At that time they allow for ordering of some items that are typically only available outside of the states through their Sako select program. He was able to get me a T3 hunter in 6.5 swede which is currently not sold in the US by Tikka.
That being said, Sakos are really nice.....just depends on whether you are a bench shooter or field shooter (I can't logically spend that kind of $ on a rifle I'll be using to hunt with).

3 ounces is all the fluting gets you in that rifle... dude... go on a diet for a half an hour and you'd lose 3 ounces yourself.

Besides... I've worked on a few stainless synthetic fluted tikkas... they're around. have your dealer check distributors like Lipsey's or Davidsons... they often have exclusive items.

Oh well scratch that!

Made the mistake of handling a Winchester Model 70 Featherweight in .264 Mag!

With Redfield 3x9 and Redfield Rings & Light Nylon Sling $1150 brand new never fired... will take care of that soon enough!
