Re: Groups that make you smile!

The first 3 shots were smaller but i managed to open it up with 3 more! Its a semi-custom Tikka that i rebarreled to 25-06 using an Adams & Bennett barrel 26'' finished length.

Re: Groups that make you smile!

Korhil78,
Impressive groups, I would like to have a 338 of some sort. Here in the Midwest it isn't really that practical, no place to stretch it out to it's limits. So I will stick to the 7mm and the 300wm for now. But that's not all bad either.

Nope, not bad at all. The 300 WM and 7mm mag have been taking game at extended ranges for quite some time. I have not taken any game with this rifle yet but I hope to get a long range shot on a bull elk next year.

That is with a stock WW! rifle, shooting 3 shots after this ladder test.



Look at the condition of that bore.


But it shoots wonderfully.

Both groups were about 5" off point of aim so I was happy with that.

26" hart sendero contour barrel 1:10
