Savage predator in 6.5 Creedmoor. Accustock and Accutrigger, rebarrel down the road if desired.

I have never shot a Tikka but there are some big Tikka fans out there. I just don't like how short action caliber Tikka rifles are not true short action bolts chambers, they just put a bolt stop in a long action. Again, I have never shot a Tikka and I'm not a gun expert so that could be a stupid reason as to why I have not bought one...

I won't buy a 700. Too many recalls. If I had one given to me, I might keep it, but a new trigger and safety would be the first thing I bought for it. Savage just makes great reliable guns.

Tikka, but with a trigger job.

Browning A or X bolt. Best trigger for factory gun that I've had.

Remington 700, but with a trigger job.

Not in any particular order. Haven't owned a savage so I can't comment on it.

Savage Predator Max 1 in whichever caliber you choose. I'm picking up a new one in a few minutes in 243. They're fantastic for the money. I've shot one in 22-250 several times.
