Re: recoil

I shoot a Sako Finnlight 300 WSM and it will be close to the Tikka in the recoil dept. I can shoot it from the bench about 15 rounds before it starts to get my attention. With a slip on recoil pad I can shoot it all day no problem. Never shot a 270 WSM, so I can't compare.

Re: recoil

I would not buy another Beretta product (Sako or Tikka) ever again based on my experience with this M85 and Beretta customer service. It shoots about 2-4 MOA and has been sent back to the factory twice and both times they BS'd me about finding copper in the barrel, cleaning it out, and shooting it to the 1 MOA guarantee. They said the next time I send it back in they would charge me. The scope I used was a NF NXS which I have shot sub .5 MOA groups with on two other rifles - Senderos. Both rifles (Sako nad Tikka) have cheap plastic injection molded stocks. The Sako stock is a little better but for a $1400 rifle (I didn't pay that much for mine) it's a travesty. I really like the Sako action, but the recoil lug system is a joke - not something I would want to build on in the future if and when the barrel wore out.

A lot of guys have good luck with Sakos and Tikkas, but if you get a lemon, you're stuck. They will not honor their guarantee and I know others who have the exact same experience as me with both. If you buy one, you're rolling the dice and they are not good rebuild platforms.

For the price of a Tikka, you can get a Sub MOA Vanguard that comes with a factory shot target with real bullet holes, and it has a good pillar bedded stock and a good action.

It wasn't my intent to go into all that, but you asked and I told you.

Whatever you get, I hope it shoots well.
