I personally would go with a standard sako 85,as the finlite is too light in the muzzle for my tastes.

I'd also opt for the Sako. Another choice to consider would be the new Kimber Caprivi. However, the Kimber is a .375 Safari type rifle. Good luck in your selection.

Sako is my dream rifle but to be honest I have no experience at all with Mannlicher. Can't go wrong with the Sako I believe but be warned, the controlled-feed they advertise isn't a true controlled-feed, more like a controlled-push-feed.
