Except those results above are from a 3kg walk around rifle and your M48 needs a wheelbarrow with good psi in its tyres :D

Folks,
i have a hankering for another 30-06 and the S100 Classic (with the blued barrelled action and walnut stock) would be just the ticket provided OSA do have them in that calibre .

Sauer do recommend their Hexalock mounts but the S100 also takes Rem 700 bases - which is a big plus in that dept.

I do like the fact that the S100 is around the 3.1 kg weight bare - and with a nice lightweight scope makes for a great carry rifle.

Time to ask around ........

I really like mine in 243. I would so straight to another Sauer if I wanted another bolt gun

I’ve got a sauer xt in 30-06.
I’d rate it as good as tikka - maybe a better factory trigger...and at least as accurate. I’m shooting 168’s at right on 3000 FPS and it is my deer / walker. Just over 3.2kg with leo 4-12 / 50 vx3.
Action screws have come loose after a day on bench -load testing. I’d buy another in a heart beat.

Managed to find out that the importer only has the Classic XT in stock - all other variants are currently out of stock.

I decided on the beech-stocked Classic - i aint fazed that its not walnut - its a hunting rifle and will be used - not admired as a safe queen.

Will probably scope it with a fixed 6x Lynx optic - and aim for an overall weight around 3.5 kgs.
