Yup, after reading about and seeing the photo of Phillip Holden's .243 Sako Forester leaning on top of his pack in his first book, Pack and Rifle I bought a second hand one in 1977. Liked it so much I added a brand new Vixen later the same year.
Still got them both, never saw the need to buy any other rifles.



I hate to be the one to tell you, but the rifle leaning on Phillip Holden's pack on the cover of "Pack and a Rifle" is a BSA Majestic.

Bugger, I must have a close look at the rifle next time I see a copy of the book. I had always assumed it was a Forester as he writes about it in the book.

Maybe wrong identification but ultimately the right brand choice. Smiley
