What rifle would you buy?

I'm looking at a Steyer SSG PIV, a Accuracy International and a Sako TRG 42. All are a 338 Lapua cal. Accuracy is what I'm looking for out of the three. Thanks

Re: What rifle would you buy?

For the 3 to 4k price tag for most of the rifles you listed I would get a custom made rifle in 338 something if thatís the round you want.

You can get a custom rifle for a lot less and have no doubts it will be accurate.

There are a lot of variants of the 338 caliber including the 338 Lapua but a lot of them will out-do the Lapua.

For price and similarities the 338 Tomahawk with its cheaper brass prices and almost comparable velocities, standard rifle action, and ease of loading makes it a superb candidate for a custom rifle.

You can build a high quality 338 on a AICS stock for a lot cheaper than buying one from them.

Let me put it this way. Out of the three which is the better one and or would you all suggest another rifle? The second post has a good suggestion and I do have a great rifle maker in my area.

Another vote for the AI. I'm a 338 LM freak, and it would be my 2nd chioce for a rifle. My first choice is a Erma SR-100 in the same caliber. Spectacular rifle! I hated to hear when they went under. If you can find one, buy it.
