Best Factory 308 run and gun tactical rifle

Ok so who makes the best factory tactical?

Tikka Tactical. Pros- good accuracy, threaded for break/ can, factory DBM, price.
Cons- Not many aftermarket parts, lame stock, 6 round max
Rem 700p Pros- Tons of aftermarket parts, great reputation, price
Cons- Stock, trigger, No DBM
Rem 700 sendero Same as 700p

Kimber tactical rifles Pros- Awesome stock,
Cons- Hate the saftey, cost, no DBM
Sako TRG Pros- accuracy, dbm, trigger, stock, accuracy, threaded barrel
Cons- PRICE
FN Herstal tactical Pros- accuracy, DBM, Price
Cons- Unknown to me.
AR-10 Pros- tons of mods,
Cons- accuracy, trigger

What would you pick for a run and gun factory tactical rifle. It doesnt look like this year I am going to get the full custom as time has run too short. I like the Kimber but if I am going to pay that much I might as well go with the trg (right) Anyway looking for some advice. Thanks

Re: Best Factory 308 tactical rifle

We shoot M700 PSS at work. For the most part they all shoot less than 1 MOA with fed gold medal 168s

I personally own the M700 LTR with 20 inch bbl. It will shoot 168 Fed gold Medals at a .68 inches for 5 shots and my hand loaded 168 smk R-15, lapua brass, cci br primer into .33 inches for 5 shots @ 2550 fps. It will push the 155 scenar and the new smk 155 palma with varget at over 2800 fps. They have a higher B.C then a 175 SMK. 800 yards all day long.

All i did was break in with tubbs final finish.

Re: Best Factory 308 tactical rifle

I've shot the Remington and it's okay, nothing too important to gripe about. If I were in the market for one I would give serious consideration to the Tikka (personal bias as I like their rifles and would deal with the lack of aftermarket goodies) and the Thompson. I was watching a show and Dave Petzal was shooting one. Pretty impressive 10 shot group. It didn't seem to open much and stayed under 1 moa with a 10 shot string.

The Icon Warlord has a DBM, Manners stock with adjustable cheekpiece and guaranteed 1/2 MOA (3 rounds but held that with the first 5). Not sure about the street price though, haven't seen one on a shelf yet.

Re: Best Factory 308 run and gun tactical rifle

Well if I get the funds3-4 ot shifts it looks like I would go with the trg. If not then I am torn between the Tikka (I have a buddy with a 22-250 older tikka that is amazing.. We beat the hell out of it and it just keeps shooting.) I like the kimber but it is just so much more expensive than other rifles in its league.. I think if it came down to it I would look at being able to get a new stock on a tikka. If I can find a good tactical style stock I will go that way for sure.. I really just wish that I could get the 243 in this tactical rifle.

Re: Best Factory 308 run and gun tactical rifle

What's the street price on the new Kimber Patrol rifle? Its the one featured in the new rifleshooter magazine. If you want a 243 tactical style rifle, my buddy built one cheap. Used a Howa 1500 bbl'd action and B&C stock.

Look at the Remington .243 VS. Only reason its not tactical is cause the stock is grey. I don't know the bbl twist but mine will shoot 105 Bergers into one raged hole. I had the grey webed stock Line-Xed kinda like Rino Liner. Cost me 20 bucks.
