Would like some thoughts!!! Looking for a new rifle in 7mm RM, options are Sako A7 or Cooper Excalibur 52, I looked at the Rem. Sendero and Rem. LR but liked the Savage 111 long range better, then I saw the Sako A7 Roughneck and liked it better than the Savage. I've always liked Coopers but we're a little pricy, now I've got the ok to get what I want within reason from the boss! Gun will mostly be used for hunting 90%, and friendly comp. about 10%, hunting out to 800yrds, steel out to maybe 1500yrds. I can look at a Sako with Leupold vx-6 for about the same price as the Cooper rifle alone. Question is would it be worth it to snag the Cooper and save up for a scope later or go with the Sako package now? Or any other rifle suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.
