Tikka T3 as a donor action.

Hiya Guys,

My initial plan for a custom .223rem has fallen through, the gunsmith has started to quibble about the price and the price started to increase, so my intrest in buying it started to decrease.

Therefore I am back to the drawing board.

I have just been looking for some rifle components and have come across the following that are all currently available.

Tikka T3 stainless action and trigger.
stainless steel 26" Kreiger 1 in 8 barrel with an M18 X 1 thread for sound mod.
Mcmillan A3/5 stock. My Proposed Stock

All the above bedded using marinetex.

My initial intention was to go with .223rem, but I am starting to lean towards the .223AI, what do you guys think ???

Your thoughts would be very much appreciated.

What do you think ???

Go for it. As you know Tikka actions are sturdy and nice. I wouldn't mind a 223AI. It's a Kreiger barrel, so you know it's quality. You can never go wrong with a McMillian.

I know you asked about the Lothar Walther barrel in your last post. Here is a video I found on accurateshooter.com.

Let us know how this build goes. I am about to have one of my old tikkas rebuilt. Who is doing your build?

What is your intended use for the rifle? That's the first question before we even start to discuss the best calber(s) etc.

90% of the time this rifle will be used for long range varmint shooting out to 600yds and beyond. In addition I may use this rifle for a bit of target shooting maybe out to 800yds.
