For a dedicated "Hunting Rifle" look no further than the Sako 85 Finnlight and the next on the list would be the 85 Synthetic Stainless. If you are a wood stock guy look at the 85 Stainless Hunter or the 85 Stainless Laminate Hunter.
For a cheaper Sako alternative you could look at the Sako A7 Stainless (or Blued) but IMO the Sako 85 is well worth the extra $$$. Mate you can't go wrong with a Sako 85 they just ooze class.
