Re: 600 yard hunting rifle????

I bought a tikka T3 for my wife in 7RM. The only reget to that purchase was telling her it was hers. That thing can flat out shoot. Last deer season we walked about 4 miles opening day and she never said anything about the gun being heavy. Her other gun is an old mossberg 800a in 308. Someone cut the barrel down to 17 inches and it still weighs more than the tikka. As for barrel life in the 7RM, my grandpa sold me his when I was 12 and it lasted for several thousand rounds. Thats not bad since the kid shooting didnt know that it is not good to get the barrel so hot that when I touched it I got blisters. Big surprise it no longer shoots accurate.

CLW, My three Tikka's are in the three cartridges you mentioned. 338 win mag, 300 win mag and 300 wsm. All three shoot awesome and are a pleasure to carry hunting. I wouldn't have a problem shooting animals at 600 yards with either of them. I hunt in grizzly country most of the time so the 338 gets the most attention.
Predictions are difficult, especially when they involve the future
