Re: Need advice on a 22 250


Over the years we have had all of the guns that you are considering come through our shop at one time or another. We regularly inspect barrels and chambers with our bore scope. Many writers claim that the trigger is the heart of any gun but I am here to tell you that it is not. You can have a Arnold Jewell bench rest trigger and if the barrel is a sewer the gun won't shoot for a hoot. This should be a major consideration for you as to have a rifle rebarreld with proper attention excercised in the chambering and fitting process is not nearly a inexpensive as bedding or changing out a trigger. I can't comment on the new Beretta/Sako actions but before Beretta acquired Sako their actions were very good. The bolt faces were always square as were the locking lugs that always engaged 80%+. I seriously doubt that the newer Beretta/Sakos exhibit the same quality simply do to the current pricing. Savage has really improved their barrels, bedding, extraction and ejection over the past few years. We believe that their barrels are probably the best of major production gun makers. The Tinka barrels that we have inspected were indicative of what you would expect from a production rifle - but not on the same level as a Savage. All things considered, the Savage has an adequate trigger. Their barrels are on a whole better that the rest. Some models even have an relatively good bedding system. Hope this info helps.
