    I'd go for the Savage with an Accutrigger. I would also consider the Model 70 Winchester which isn't listed.

    Out of the options you listed I would chose the Tikka hands down. They are lightweight, accurate, and the actions are some of the smoothest you'll find on a factory rifle.

    Hello killerspoons, At medium range any medium-sized game would not be happy with meeting up with you if you were packing the Savage in .308Win. Put optics on board that will give you 4 to 5X per 100 yards and they will be sitting ducks if you do your part. Keep your powder dry.
