Tikka bolt question

I have put my hands on a Tikka 22-250 and absolutely love the smooth bolt action. I am now looking into buying a 308 rifle with a Tikka bolt action. Possibly the TIKKA T3 TAC 308.

Are there any other smooth actions comparable to Tikka that I should consider?

Are Tikka bolts in other rifles besides Tikka?

Educate me please.

    I'm somewhat familiar with Sako. I know they have good barrels and actions. Are they tikka actions? I'll look into them more

    Let me first say that there's nothing wrong with the Tikka and they have the same barrel as a Sako. The Tikka has some plastic on them such as the magazines. The Sako's are manufactured from better materials.

    So essentially the bolt and barrel are the same, but the stock and magazine are where the difference in price come into play?

    I have 8 Sako's but no Tikka. I have handled Tikka's but can't remmeber all the differances. The Sako actions are super smooth but you should get to a gun store where you can compare SXS.

    The tikka and the sako a7 are very comparable. The a7 has 3 bolt lugs instead of 2. Also tue magazine has a little different release etc.. neither have plastic. Its a very strong polymer. But th are great. I cant say i like my sako any more than my tikkas.
