    I have to say it, you can / could get a brand new Tikka. Nice and light and I think you can get them in 7-08 too
    Not really a Sako though.

    Savage Lightweight Hunter? Wood/blued, 5.5lb, nice trigger and action etc, same price range as a Tikka T3.

    Always depends on personal taste of course, depends what he likes.

    I guess 6.5 Creedmoor would fit into the 'fancy cartridge' category ;-)

    Shame its a good price. Rechamber?
