Re: What gun to buy?

Out of the 3 listed #1 CZ,hands down, #2 Tikka, #3 SPS tactical. There are better options between the CZ and SPS, Savage 10 FCP-SR, FCP-K, FCP-HS, 12 FVSS or VLP DBM, Weatherby Vanguard S2 varmint, Remington 700 5R milspec, Mossberg ATR varmint/tactical, i'd put any of those ahead of the SPS tacical. As for your listings the CZs are very accurate, in the top 5 altogether out of the box IMO.

I would look at the at the savage in 6.5x284. They are very good out of the box and the 6.5x284 is one of the very best at long range. The last thing I would buy is the Remington. They are making junk these days.

I have the SPS Tactical in .308. I absolutely love that gun. I shoot Honady AMAX rounds out of it and consistently shoot below .5MOA. I will say I did upgrade the stock to Bell & Carlson Tactical Medalist Style 3 w/ "Hook". I was not fan of the Hogue stock. That would be my vote.

I will look at the Savage guns. I have one now that I don't shoot because it expensive and I don't have the range where I live now. It is a Savage 110 BA .338 Lapua.
The CZ looks like a good choice and the Savage 10 FCP-SR ( not sure of the stock color ) but the 10 FCP-K may work.
When shopping for a gun it's the hunt not the kill. So many to choose from.
