Default RE: Sako 75 Hunter vs Tikka Whitetail Hunter?

i had both the sako tr3 and the tikka m658 mounted with leopould 2.5 - 8 vx 3
in the 338 cal. both action are great, the sako held 1 more round than the tikka. i handload and bench tested several powders and bullets the best grouping for the sako was 1.25 and not with maximin powder. on the other hand the tikka consistently produce 3/4 inch groups with compressed loads at 100 metres. i also like the feel and balance of the tikka and had many 21 day hunts in the rockies for sheep and goats into late november, under extreame conditions and never had any problems.
