If you had $1700.00 to spend on a new rifle WHAT would buy... and from whom, scope not be included... I am looking at a Sako 270. This is a Load question?????? :drool: :drool: :drool: :drool: :drool:

"And who from scope not be included..." Not sure what that means. If your talking about just a rifle, maybe the Nosler 48 Liberty rifle. If $1700 for both rifle and scope. Then I'd probably spend about $700 to $800 on the rifle and $900 to a grand on the glass. Probably either a newer FN model Winchester m70 if you can find one or a tikka, both close to $700 to $800 give or take a little. Plenty of good scopes with what's left over. Sako's are nice rifles with super slick actions, but Sako makes tikka rifles. Tikka's have nice slick actions too and great triggers. I have a FN barreled Winchester m70 that is the most accurate rifle I've ever owned, easily does sub moa if I do my part, and has one of the best factory triggers I've ever felt.

I'd build one on a 700. Probably a heavy Shilen in 6.5-284 and I'd have it in an McMillan a3.

Nice looking rig there, how much you take for it?

With the range certified test target of .39", she's not for sale. But I would listen at $2500 :)

I have Nosler M48 in 26 Nosler. It is shooting a 129 gr long range accubond pretty fast. A 140 accubond or 142 long range accubond are right at 3600 fps.

I would keep an eye out and get something used. On another classifieds forum, there was a Gordy Gritters custom 7mm-08 built on a 700 action with a Lilja barrel. Last I looked it was around $1500 which is probably at least a $1000 loss for the person selling it. Gordy's bench rest rifles usually start at around $5K using a stiller or BAT action.

That would be the way to go, but I am guessing $1700 won't get you very far down the road?

You mentioned Sako... I'm a fan. I bought a Finnlight last year and love it. It's pretty much the ideal rifle for my taste.
