    That is a Sako SS Varmint in 308, looks like a model 75. I have it in 22-250 model 85 and it's a ground hogs worst nightmare. It is heavy so unless you're shooting from a good rested position, it's not a walk around rifle, then you would be better off with the Sako Grey Wolf or Hunter stainless,IMO.

    bolt action .308

    my 30 year old Model 788 is still the best out of all my .308s, still a tackdriver, reliable, tuff rifle.

    You may want to check out the Tikka T3. There are Lite, Varmint, and TAC models.

    While I agree there are some great choices mentioned in this thread my personal favorite is a Ruger M77RSI in 308.

    Mine is not the newer MkII, but an old model 77 with the tang safety. Its never failed me and is still a tack driver after "too many" years of service.

    Had a 700 SPS tactical, traded for a Savage 10 FCP-K. Overall a better rifle.

    OK, now tell us WHY you decided on the the .308 you picked. Why did you decide to buy it over the others? Was it you father's choice? Was it from using one and liking it so much? Brand loyalty?

    I did without any Rugers ever since he went to Congress on his own dime to testify that civilian shooters had no need for high cap magazines. I have no brand loyalty whatsoever when it comes to Ruger.

    That said...Bill once said he wanted to build guns so good that he would buy them even if he didn't own the company. The RGSR was that gun to me.

    Built to go to Hell and back...the right chambering, accuracy up to my standards (and that ain't cheap), all the factors put together added up to a weapon I wanted to have in my arsenal.

    Before anyone tells me I chose poorly, please read my signature block.

    I took no offense...sorry if it sounded like I did.

    I'm often just very direct.

    The only one I have experience with is the rem sps tactical.

    It does shoot good, the 20" barrel is nice and handy. I really like the way the over molded hogue stock feels but is it flimsily and not free floated. Eventually you may want to get a better stock but its a nice gun IMO

    Bill Ruger is dead and Ruger makes great firearms. If he was alive I might boycott his company, but since he is no longer at the helm, I will buy great guns from them.
    Maybe someday Ruger will issue an apology for their dead leader's betrayal of the shooting public, but I won't hold my breath waiting.

    Well gents it looks like my waiting (procrastination) and not pulling the trigger has paid off. Never traded the SR-556, now I could get two bolt guns for what it's worth. I've had more than a few offers of 2 or more bolt guns, bolt guns and cash, a 10/22 a bolt gun and cash. This is crazy. Now I don't know if I even want to get rid of it, being that I might not be able to get another one. I am even thinking about the morals of taking advantage of a bad situation too. What should I do?

    Well, I'll tell you that I sold my AR a couple weeks ago before all this and I'm glad I did for that simple matter. Not to be over dramatic, but I will never try to gain profit covered with people's blood. Just my opinion, but I have no regrets. If you still want to sell it, sell it to a friend for the previous going rate.

    I'll tell you right now the 700 AAC is one of the best the rifles out there for the money especially if you're interested in using a suppressor. My AAC in a B&C stock shoots under .5 inch groups (5 shot) with factory match ammo and usually .3 to .4 with hand loads when I do my part. The 1-10 barrel really likes heavier bullets like the 175 SNL or 178 Amax. The thing shot .75 inch groups with that horrible overmold stock that was touching the barrel when using a bi-pod. (Groups stated are 100yd groups rifle still shoots sub MOA at 600 yards [max distance at my range]). Another friend I talked into buying one has had similar results and guys on other forums have said the same things so I don't think I just got a lucky rifle.
