Default Which Rifle to keep

I have two rifles in 7mm-08. BLR in the camo stainless version, and a Sako A7 stainless. Need to reduce one of them to make room for other firearms. Don't need to 7mm-08s. If it were you, what rifle would you keep. I use them for mostly deer hunting in Pa., Possible Black bear, and maybe a Texas sheep. Looking for advise on which to keep. Can't make up my mind, they both shoot very well with 120gn TTSX over 45 gns of Varget...

I'd pass on the BLR and hang onto the Sako.

I've never been much on BLRs, so I'd move that one, especially if they both shoot the same and you are not particular to one or the other.

Another vote to keep the Sako.

Unless there's some special application for the BLR, I think I'd keep the Sako and I'm a Browning fan. Then again, you could always buy a bigger gun safe and this wouldn't be a problem.

That's nothing I have 8 30/06. Never sold any, dad won a blue in 308 in 91 traded even for a rem 700 back in 270. I got two 7mm/08s so if it where me I would try to keep both. But if you must get ride of one keep the sako.

man should not have to sell off toys of the like to finance more toys of the like, keep them both and save up for whats next.

Sorry I have that sickness

now if I were to go buy between the 2 it would be the Sako.
