Thanks for the welcome!
I need a bit of advice though. As you know, I plan to buy a rifle as soon as I get my license. I am into precision bulls eye shooting and would like a rifle capable of sub MOA performance. I am considering the following models:
Browning M100 Eclipse .270 WSM
Savage VLP DBM .300 WSM
Remington 700 SFII Sendero 7mm Remington Magnum.
Kimber Tactical .308
Tikka and Sako varmint models possibly .243 or 7mm-08
I would like to avoid .308 if possible because I don't like the ballistics. Being an old school kind of gal, I would prefer a wooden stock.
I have searched the web extensively, I am getting mixed reviews. Some say that Savage is the way to go. Others say that the Remington is the best thing since sliced bread. Unfortunately, some had to do a lot of work to get the Sendero to shoot accurately.
I am tempted to go with the Browning because I have considerable experience with their firearms. They have a great fit and finish and perform admirably. However, the trigger will have to be reworked. 4 lbs is a bit much for precision shooting.
Reviews of Tikka and Sako Varmint models are positive as far as accuracy is concerned but I want to avoid a plastic stock (Tikka). The Sako is a bit on the pricy side but the varmint is available with a walnut or laminated stock. Unfortunately, they are not available in the chamberings that I would prefer.
I fell in love with the Kimber Sonora only to find that they don't make them anymore so I'll have to go with the tactical model with a plastic stock and in .308 if I go that route.
I should add that I'm not terribly concerned about recoil. I was a competitive trap shooter when I was young and used to fire 100+ rounds of 12 gauge /day with no problems at all.
Advice would be greatly appreciated.
