Re: Tikka T3 Lite Stainless vs Savage Weather Warrior in 270 WSM

I keep wanting to try a Tikka 270 WSM but I just can't get past the plastic and the small ejection port. I would really like to get my hands on one and shoot it a bit to see if these were actually an issue. The Savage in 270 WSM is flat awesome with 165 Matrix or 150 BT's, I'm on my third barrel on my model 12.

Bigngreen. You can shoot mine anytime. I'm in SW Montana too.

Ejection port is perfect for the wsm and I have a whole line of laminate Tikka stocks on there way.

Shedhorn is doing their big doings thing this weekend in Ennis and there was a couple Tikka WSM's that were begging to come home but didn't happen.
I'm assuming the barrel shank on a Tikka is a metric? I'm over in Dillon, if I'm over that way I'll drop ya a line.

You're right about the metric part. Many gunsmiths wont touch them because they are unfamiliar with metric threads.

How much were the Tikkas going for? I'm always looking for an excuse to pick another one up.

Thanks everyone for the help. I'm leaning toward the Savage. I really like both rifles but since I can't afford both I guess one will have to do. Keep the info coming though. I really like what I'm hearing.

Metric threads aren't a big deal, once I get a new lathe The T3's looked like around $480 ish on a 270 WSM and a 300 WSM if I remember right, there was an amazing 6.5x55 for 2g's.
What COAL are you getting with your mag?
