Title: Buddy looking to buy, big game rifle....
Post by: h20hunter on October 22, 2020, 12:23:39 PM
Throwing this out there for a friend.

Looking for good shooting rifle. Caliber not a major factor,  think deer, elk, bear. With scope is a big plus, with a break is nice. All weather or stainless a plus. He is not brand specific and is an average shooter. Sum moa not required but reliable and consistent is of course. We can load for it but factory ammo dialed in a plus. Located in Lake Stevens,  local is preferred.

Budget is between 1k and 1500.

Thanks

I built my Savage 26 nosler for less then $1500. If he builds and goes with a 26 or 28 nosler I have go gauges he can borrow.

Does he have a weight limit? Short action/long action. Ammo availability?does he reload?
Title: Re: Buddy looking to buy, big game rifle....
Post by: h20hunter on October 22, 2020, 05:03:31 PM
He does not.

Short long ok.

We load, he does not so it would be easy for us to load for it.

I have a savage 10T I might decide to part with. .308 win caliber. Thing is heavy though with the heavy barrel and accustock.  It's ~ 9.5lbs bare rifle.

Take a look at that SAKO Finnbear in 7MM that wrchinook has posted in this category.
I have one and that rifle is the ticket.
they shoot like a dream and are as accurate as anything on the market.
Plus it has class.

Saw that one, very nice. He has his sights, pun intended, on an offer from a member here. He's working on the home front for final approval.  Thanks for the suggestion though!
