Here is video of a guy from sako explaining the gun, saying that many of the big calibers will be coming out in 2007. We'll see.

fortunately i have a few months here. But The Mark V sporter has now caught my eye if the sako doesn't work out, but I really want that sako. I would be so dissapointed if they didn't put it out in the win mag.

ORIGINAL: stalkingbear

I love A-bolts,there a BUNCH of reasons that I feel they are among very best of factory rifles.
me too, i have a browning a-bolt hunter in 25-06 and it is the best rifle ive ever shot. at 100 yards i can keep 5 shots that can fit in a dime with any ammo thats out there. thats from a gun vise of course. love the wood and fit and finsh. my plan is to get an a-bolt micro hunter in 308 win and keep the 25-06 then ill have the 2 rifles/calibers that i would need to take on anything from long range varmints to long range deer and realy anything that walks the earth in the north or south american contenant {execp maby brown and poler bears, but thats just a safty isue not saying that it couldent or hasent been done} would like to take a look at the tikka's in 338 fed that is the only other rifle i would even think about and thats only because browning is not offering a 338 fed as of now but i would weight on that buy for a couple of years if i knew browning was going to, i like the brownings that much.

Browning 300 WSM . would be my choice .
I ve looked at both and the quality and smothness is a lot nicer in the Browning rifle .[8D]

A Browning A-bolt is just a much higher quality gun that a Tikka, not taking anything away from a Tikka but a Browning is just a better gun for the money.

Sold my A-bolt after I bought my first tikka t3. Accuracy is far superior out of the box compared to the a-bolt. Every gun and situation is different, great a-bolts and bad tikkas and vice-a-versa. However, I will NEVER hesitate to buy another tikka. Great trigger, great accuracy out of the box.

pdoughertyDU and chuckclear - You said everything I could have. Tikka T3 is my choice. I've only personally had experience with their .300 WM and .30-06, but I'm impressed with their out of the box accuracy, smooth bolt and trigger and free floating barrel based on Sako's. I also appreciate in the miles of daily hiking up and down the mountain sides when hunting Elk out West that the T3 Hunter is 6 3/4 lbs (plus scope), instead of some of the heavier rifles out there. It looks like A-Bolt is marginally heavier.
Price for A-Bolt is probably $350-400 more than the T3, depending upon which special caliber and options.
