    I want a new .308 stainless steel bolt action rifle. I prefer that the stock be synthetic and that the barrel be a varmint/bull barrel. So far the only rifle that fits all of my preferences is the Tikka Varmint Stainless/Synthetic and the Tikka Super Vamint Stainless/Synthetic. What is the difference between the two Tikkas other than $500? Do you have any experience with either of the Tikkas. Also, there are a lot of good rifles that meet the characteristics I prefer with the exception of the bull barrel. How does the Sako compare as well as Remington, Browning, and any other rifles that you can think of? What do you recommend. Price is not an issue. Thanks.

    Kennyboy-

    There are a few models from Howa and Weatherby (the Howa 1500 and Weatherby Vanguard share the same basic action, but come with different stocks and barrel lengths) that also fit your criteria.

    The actions are similar to Remington 700s (they use the same scope mounts and bases, even).

    This one is on sale at a local store:

    and

    http://www.weatherby.com/

    The Weatherby Sub-MOA Varmint models are guaranteed to shoot sub-MOA and come with nice Bell and Carlson stocks.

    Triggers are fully user-adjustable, though they're not single-set.

    Also check out the Savage 110 Tactical and 12 Varmint rifles, both of which have their excellent Accutrigger. They are very popular with local police SWAT teams. The Varminter in fluted stainless steel with aluminum post bedding may be just what you are looking for. And, the pricing is rather attractive!

    Bonus: Savage sells a ready-to-shoot tactical package for less than $2000, including a Savage 110, mounted Leupold tactical 3 x 10 scope, Choate tactical stock, Harris bipod, and aluminum case. Gun Tests, who does comparative tests of equipment, tested the .308 Savage package and found it will give 1/4 minute accuracy with 168-gr target ammo...a Best Buy.

    Ahhh. You want one of the original Remington 700 VSSFs in .308. Too bad Remington doesn't offer the VS SF II in .308. I have one of the originals, and it's a great shooter!

    Several weeks ago I e-mailed Beretta customer service with the same question regarding the differences between the Tikka Varmint and the Super Varmint. The response I received said "The super varmint has a upper picatinny rail, and a adjustable cheek pad. Only difference."
