    6.5x55 or similar SS hunting rifle, or Blaser R8

    I'm not having much luck finding a Blaser R8 so I'm after a hunting rifle, either in 6.5x55 or similar, .308, 7mm08, 260 etc, non-magnum.

    Must be stainless.

    Sako, Tikka etc

    2nd hand Tikkas sell for near as much as a new one. May as well buy a new one in the chambering of your choice.
    Experience. What you get just after you needed it.

    Yeah to be fair I'd probably just buy a new Tikka superlite, I was hoping someone would have a Sako 85 or finnlight for a reasonable price.

    Gun City Chch have a couple of Blasers on the shelf now, .223 and .308 at about 4k I think. Am considering putting up a Sauer 100 SS with rail,rings, cases and dies in 6.5 Cm at reasonable money if something different floated your boat.

    Cheers everyone, I managed to get a 7mm08 finnlight, a bit nicer than what I was originally after.
