tikka t3, Browning a bolt LRH, Sako A7

I went into Cabelas looking for something in 270 wsm but I stumbled across a very awesome looking Browning A bolt long range hunter in 300 Ultra Mag with a grey laminated stock and black 26" fluted barrel (no break) that I just cant stop thinking about.
They also have a used Savage weather warrior 16 in 270 wsm that looks decent.
Anyways I cant make up my mind between all these:

Sako A7 270 wsm...going on sale this thurs and I like these Sakos
Savage 16 270 wsm
Tikka t3 300 wsm
Browning A bolt LRH 300 RUM
Savage 116 300 winmag with fluted barrel
Savage 116 bear hunter 300 win mag
Savage 111 LRH in 6.5x284 or 300 win mag

Too many damn choices and I want them all but can only buy one for now.
I like all calibers listed for different things.

    My vote is the Browning, But I'm a Browning guy. You could shoot just about anything w/it. So I think your quarry of "stuff" will be covered. As a bonus you could change barrel to 338 RUM later with no fuss. If ya don't buy it I bet it'll huant ya, It caught your eye.
    Just my thoughts.

    I guess the answer is I plan on using it for whatever it will be good at.
    All of them can be used as mountain rifles, even the 300 rum its not heavy at all
    The Sako A7 and Tikka I would use for deer and elk hunting and general medium range shooting, same with all the savages listed
    The 300 rum Id use for the same thing but add in longer range hunting/target shooting

    How are barrel swaps with these? I heard they loctite the actions to the barrels.
    Ive also heard heat will make them able to be removed?

    Oh, that would be gunsmith stuff to switch. I've seen a few on here that came beautiful with new barrels. I've loooked for the 338rum in the past in Brownings and there not the easiest to find. I ended up staying with the 338wm. as I had hundreds of brass and dies already.
