    7mm RM or SA vairants

    Just putting the feelers out there I have a new VX6 that needs a mate, I'm looking for a rifle for longer shots when the scrub gun wont do the job so effectively.

    I am looking at a new rifle on my next days off but thought I would see if anyone has anything they are thinking of unloading before I take the plunge.

    Prefer 7mm Stainless/action/barrel (would consider 30cal if the right rifle to cut down on reloading costs with other rifle)

    Not interested in Savages, Howa's, Mossberg's or cheap Remington's or some barstardised combination of back yard genius.

    Prefer Sako 75/85 but consider others also.

    PM if you have anything you think would fit the bill thanks.

    Regards,

    Andrew

    I have a cheap Remington that's got all the bells and whistles, not for sale but happy to jack up a local trial for you to see if 7 RM is what you want.

    Cheers for the offer Josh, pretty happy that a RM is fit for purpose.
    I should clarify my comment about "cheap" remmingtons so I don't end up with a lynch mob after me... I meant that 78? Model that rusts if you look at it funny

    Thanks Dale,
    I should have thought my post out a little more - I should have stated I am looking for a rifle that is mountain/carry friendly, prefer something less stout than a Sendero

    I would look tikka, good Ballance of weight and form for actual hunting/range use.

    You can spend 2.5 times as much buying a Sako but a tikka will do the same job - both be long action anyway.

    Just my thoughts.

    Yeah I own a Tikka already and am aware of their attributes. Really just checking to see if anyone has a gem stashed away before I buy new.

    For a second hand rifle, depends on what it is.

    New rifles I'm looking circa 3k max.
