Re: .300 WSM decision

+1 on the tikka. Have several, one being a 300wsm that likes Combined Technologies 150, 168, and 180s. Really loves the 150s with H4831sc or RL17. Also shoots the hsm tg 168s into <3/4. Will shoot H4831sc and 150/168 easily <1/2. Here is a tikka 300wsm that has served me well! Have taken a couple of decent bucks with it in the past. By the way, if you are going to cerakote an 800$ scope, you had better like it!!!!

Re: .300 WSM decision

I had bought a 308 vanguard and a 300wsm tikka t3 lite, for me the vanguard in 308 kicked about as much as the tikka, kept the tikka and love it

Re: .300 WSM decision

I have both Vanguards/Howa and the T3

If carrying it a long way, the T3 with a Limbsaver pad and an Ernie the gunsmith T 3 varmint spring is really hard to beat.

The Vanguard is a solid beefier action but no more accurate than the the ones I have tested and shot. With hanloads the T 3 is a laser and quality is high.

If you are thinking of custom mods later on the Vanguard may be easier to work on..
