Q:I've finally convinced myself that I need a new deer rifle. I'm wanting a bolt action with a synthetic stock and stainless steel barrel in a .308. I've narrowed the field down to the Savage 16/116 FCSS Weather Warrior and the Tikka T3 Lite. I've seen the same comparison on other sites but none are very recent. What are your thoughts on these two rifles? Any suggestions for optics and rings on either? Any other rifles you might suggest? Keep in mind these two are at the top of my price range.
Q:I am getting ready to sight my muzzelloader in for the season next month. I have an H&R sidekick break down with a bushnell scope on it. I had trouble with it before but I snugged the screws down pretty good for the scope rings. I have white hot powder, probably loading 150 grains, with hornady SST sabots. Im probably going to sight it in about an inch high at 50 yards. Does that sound like a good idea or should I go for dead center at 50? Also anyone with any ballastic knowledge what would you recomend for a comfortable max shooting range with a load like that?
