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
Of the choices you listed, the 6.5x284 is the most fun to shoot IMHO.
And, the 111 LRH is a good platform that'll be easy to customize over time.
Factory ammo choices are limitted. But, you'll want to handload for any of them if you want to shoot consistently past 500yds.
You can rest assured that they will all "shoot stuff."
