Re: Need second gun

One of my favorite lite deer rifles is my Tikka T3 Lite in 270 Win. You already know what you get with a Tikka, and all I can say is that you will get more of the same in a 270 WSM or a 7mm WSM.
I have a close friend who recently got a T3 in 270WSM, it is a lights out shooter (just like my 270).
In fact if you are having issues with flinching I would recommend a 270 Win.
I was going to recomend one of the big 30's to you, but you mentioned the flinching issue. A lot of the guys shooting the big 30's and 338's are using muzzle breaks for several reasons, one being the flinch issue, but the other is being able to spot your own shots, which is very important for LRH.
Bottom line, get another Tikka - you know 'em and you trust 'em.
