I have had many favorite rifles early on. My favorite was always the newest one I had. I love shooting this little .223 that I had Britt build me for the F class shooting. When it comes to my favorite hunting rifle, I have a Sako 270 WSM. This is one of the finest factory guns I have ever owned. It is the lightest most accurate factory gun I have ever had and really does the trick on white tailed deer. Can’t ever imagine parting with it. I hunting with. Ruger M77 .243 for years and 30-06 Winchester, Browning 7mm Mag and a Remington 7mm STW up until I got the Sako. Maybe I went on and on and gave too much info. But I just love my guns.
