Less than a week out from making my 6.5 PRC purchase. I’m a Tikka fan but like the modularity of the Sako S20. I did get to handle a Bergara HMR today and it would fit the bill as a bench and hunting for rifle. I hunt primarily tree stands and box blinds, no long hikes.

Sako S20 or Bergara HMR?

Between the S20 and that model Bergara I would go with the S20.
If you compared the S20 with a Bergara Premier I would have to think harder!

After handling the S20 multiple times and the HMR one time, I am going with the HMR.

The Sako 20 MOA mount system is not quick detach and forces one to use the Sako rings.

I’ve seen 2 Sako S20s that had either a very difficult to operate cheek riser or a loose magazine.

The Bergara HMR has more options since it is a 700 action. I also the heavier weight. This is going to be a double duty box blind and bench gun.
