I had a couple L61, AIII & AV SAKO's that were dead solid out of the box dependably sub moa with factory ammo...and a Ruger 77 tanger that was scary accurate with a little judicious bedding and trigger tuning...

Price range will determine most of the ? ...but not always.

Today for an off the rack shooter at under $800-$k I'd look at - in no particular order - a Wby Vanguard, FN Winnie, Tikka T3 if I was immune to recoil - but a SAKO A7 be Mo Bettah choice, a Remmy 700 and immediately put a Timney or Jewel triger in it, mebbe even a TC Venture with it's 5R rifleing & buyable at half the budget & MRC ASR at a touch more bux...+++ $'s will get you lots more choices as always.

Weatherby Vanguard S2 or Browning X-bolt. The determining factor would be the weight you want as the Browning is over half a pound lighter.

Another vote here for the Vanguard S2.

If you are looking at the Sako, before you buy take a look at the Mauser M12 - a really outstanding rifle for about the same or slightly less than the Sako.

Anybody laid eyes or fondled a Forbes Rifle & got an idea what they cost? I know NULA's are spendy and basically a flyweight custom, but I understand the Shaw barreled Forbes production gun is lots less bux and s'posed to be well worth the effort to find one.

Prolly be worth going to the DSC Show just to see the limited distributuion rifles. It was the only place I ever saw the beautimous current production Mauser's, that'll put dent in your Wrangler's back pocket too...but then there ain't nuthin at the show that is gonna be found at any of the Big Box retailers either....and lots closer than Reno.

Brand new Tikka .300 Win Mag. An arbitrary load of 180 gr. Noslers, mid range powder charge of H-1000. The shot numbers were when I was fouling the barrel before load development. The flier wasn't me, just a warm barrel. The little squares are 1/2", not bad for an unmodified mass produced rifle.

Nope. Not bad at all. Most people would be flinching by number 11 shooting the load out of a light weight rifle.
