Tikka 270 wsm...yes or no?????

I have decided that my next caliber will be the 270 wsm. I have been looking at this caliber for a while and love the ballistics on it. After researching some of the different options including some semi custom set ups, I am 99.99999% set on the Tikka T3 Lite Stainless...1:10T with a 24 3/8 barrel. I have this set up in my 300wsm except it's the MT version with a 20" barrel. The action is smooth and the trigger pull is sweet....

So I am employing reverse psycology....can some one convince me NOT to go with this rig?????????

    I absolutely love that cartridge! I have one in Remington model 7. Its got a short barrel I believe its only 22" but man can it shoot! So much so that I convinced my friend to buy one, matter of fact his is a Tikka T3 lite also. Only problem is its waiting on a scope so he hasn't shot it yet. But judging by my Remington, the Tikka with a match grade barrel will be a tack driver!

    I do not believe you will do wrong by getting the Tikka AND in 270 WSM. I have a buddy who has a 325 in the Tikka and he loves it. Partly because I load such a great bullet for him and they are very accurate! I'm impressed with it, the Tikka that is.

    The 270wsm is an awsome round. We have 3 and they are all tack drivers. I shoot a Win M70 Coyote, my wife shoots a Win M70 Coyote, my son shoots a Rem 700 CDL Boon and Crocket, and now my Mom wants one! Shes 60 and I keep telling her she needs to get something smaller but she has killed a nice buck with mine and a doe with a Ruger 270wsm that belongs to my cousin so she wont have it any other way. Cant comment on the Tikka but form what Ive read Im sure it is a nice rig and may look at one for my Mom. Good Luck with youre choice and take care.

    So far so good!!!!

    KyScott- which Ruger do you have in 270 WSM??? My BIL is a Ruger fan and he couldn't find where Ruger has this caliber...he is looking into buying a Ruger and getting a custom barrel and using the stock, trigger and action

    Ruger quit making the WSM's a number of years ago. You may be able to find a used gun, but not a new one. I bought a Ruger Mark II in 300 WSM a few years ago and it is a fine hunting gun. I carried it on my last elk hunt in 2009.

    No argument from me. Took this guy a few weeks ago with a T3 in 270WSM.
