    I am fairly new to hunting, looking at replacing a loan .303 with my own rifle. Any recomendations on a basic rifle. Have been told to look at a Ruger 308 S/S or a Tikka T3 S/S. Any avise would be welcome.

    sako stainless synthetic in .308 or 6.5x55 is what i'd go for.

    The new Savage with the accutrigger is a great bargain.
