About 1/2 year ago I started an own thread about this topic on LRH. Lots of good infirmation to find there also!
I tried several different rifles of this kind, among them Blaser K95, Merkel K3 + 4 and Kieghoff's version. SSBA - rifles are extremely popular among mountain hunters over here, and that by very good reason. All of these guns are very precise, short(!!) and of very low weight. With the K95 you have various opportunities of using Blaser's switchbarrel system as well, also with the other companies. You'll find Blaser's genious scope mountingsystem on it which makes it extremely easy to switch scopes as well. And it doesn't matter what (barrels/scopes) and how often you switch, the POI stays always the same. As well you'll find all your popular American LR - calibres like 7mmRM, 300WM and also some Wby like 257, 270 etc. For all calibres stronger than 7mmRM you are absolutely in need of a good muzzle brake. Light weight rifles and highpower ammo can be hard to stand ...
Personally I would go for the great rimmed 30R Blaser (almost the same performance than 300WM). It's to be said that rimmed cases normally should work better in these kind of systems, but it's all about preferences. If you will go for one you won't regret it, that's for sure.
