6.5x284 built on Tikka T3 action

Just before Christmas I picked up the rifle I had built for my dad. It is a 6.5x284 build on a Tikka T3 action. Here are the specs
Left Handed Tikka T3 stainless action
Lilja #3 finished at 27.5"
Tubb Recoil Lug
Pillar and Glass Bedded Helmick Stock.

Helmick stocks come with a Tikka recoil lug bedded into them but I asked for mine with no lug and no lug inlet then had the smith inlet it for the remington style lug. It turned out very nicely.

Re: 6.5x284 built on Tikka T3 action

Hi mike,
Can you tell me which donor action you used. 30-06? I was wondering if tikka use the same bolt face for 6.5x55 as the .308 family.
Also, have you had any feed problems from the magazine?
Thanks

Very nice Mike! I love my customized Tikkas sometimes more than my full customs. It is hard to beat the slick cycling of a Tikka or Sako action.

Re: 6.5x284 built on Tikka T3 action

Hi Mike
That is a very Handsome Rifle you have Sir. The Stock in particular appeals to me. Very impressed with your answer to the Recoil Lug used in the standard T3, I have not seen the Rem style Lug fitted to a Tikka before.
I too am a Leftie and have a 6.5x284 built on an older Tikka 690 Action. I am using the 120 Grain Nosler BT with N165 Powder, Fed 210M Primer and Lapua Case. Mine is a .292 Neck as it was the only Reamer my smith had.

Goodooga.

I do not know if this helps at all but my Tikka 690 was a 6.5X55 when it came from the Factory and I had it Rebarrelled in 6.5x284 with no issues. The 284 case feeds fine from the Tikka Mag too.

Brit.
