Tikka T-3 Light. The Tikka T-3 light is the lightest, handiest rifle on the market at an affordable price. There is nothing that can compare with it in that price range. Nothing but a custom rifle will shoot with it on average. The action is far superior to the savage and better than the remington. Sako actions are the best actions out there over the counter in that price range. If you are hunting for a hunting rifle this is a no brainer.

Go with Savage. You will not be disappointed.

But if the others shoot good and are light enough for the job, I'd just focus on load development for those and spend the rifle money on practice and better backpacking gear.

That said, I'm also willing to accept the "I just want a new rifle to play with answer" any day of the week!


I've been looking to do a few backpack hunts in the future and want a gun that I don't feel terrible about getting it wet or bumped around. Both the 338 and 25-06 have hand carved stocks where my father in law picked out the block of wood. This is why I like the idea of a composite stock.Last year I purchased a 22-250 remington with a composite and it does well in bad weather

I have the Tikka T3 lite in 300 WSM. Two of my sight in groups were 3/4" and 1" at 200 yds with Winchester supreme 180 bonded bullets. We hiked in 10 miles on a hunt with all our gear. My buddies were VERY envious of the light weight of my rifle.

If I was to do it again, I would choose the same rifle in 300 WM, so I could use heavier bullets.

There will be lots of sales between Jan 1 and Tax Day. Retailers hate getting stuck with inventory tax.

I vote tikka, the only down fall In a tikka are the slow twist rates, other than that they are pretty unbeatable
