    Hey guys, I just got my Tikka out of the law away. Haven't had the chance to shhot it or for that matter quite decided which scope to put on it though. Think a nickel finish?

    I think enough of them to stand in front of cape buffalo with a Sako in my hands...375 H&H Safari Mdl... Sakos are excellent rifles. They did make some not so good rifles about 15 or so years ago, however. They got everything ironed out in a hurry, though.

    Basically top of the line rifles without going into the EXTRAVAGANTLY expensive rifles. They are really good and considered by many to be some of the best.

    Had on in .243. Great gun.

    I'm upgrading from a Remington 710 so that's good to know. Although I'm always going to be partial to that gun. I've never missed with it, and most people who see it at the range mistake it for the Colt.

    I'm not particularly fond of the new Model 75s. I like the old Vixen, Forester, Finwolf and Finbear series of firearms. All fine rifles. Almost as good as my Pre '64 Winchesters.

    The new ones are top of the line, without all tht prissy crap on them. In my opinion they are as good as they get.

    Thr only ones I have seen used are odd and extreme calibors. As if someone had found out how hard it is to find and afford the ammo.

    I am building a 7-08 on an L579 acton. Sako is a fine riflle. Do not know if Beretta has had an impact on quality or not. I have a Delux in 280 which can shoot well under an inch with handloads. From what I have seen in trying to locate an action for a 7-08. They are a bit pricey.
