Ordered some toys for a T3 build

I am pretty excited about this. I am going to build a pair of 6.5x284's on tikka t3 actions. A right handed one for me and a Left handed one for my dad. The barrels I ordered are Krieger #4's finished at 26" I am going to use the Helmick Arms Laminated monte Carlo stocks. With a Tubb oversized recoil Lug.... I am kinda bummed because the barrels are 16 weeks out, but I hope to have them both done before Christmas.

Those are nice looking stocks. One of my local gun shops has a t3 lh in 243win I was eyeballing the other day. I didn't like the synthetic stock and figured my options for a nice replacement were slim. Now I might have to go back and check it out.

Sounds like a couple of fun builds,Wild dog makes a nice stock for the tikka also check out this link for bolt handles and if you wanna replace the plastic bolt shroud.

Re: Ordered some toys for a T3 build

Mike,
I too just started a 6.5-284 T3 build and have the same reservations about weight. I ordered a Pac-Nor #5, 3 groove ss; which they claim is 3.9 lbs and .700 at 28 in. I had it crowned at 26 because this duplicates the 6.5-284 Montana rifleman barrel on my M70(which is balanced and does'nt seem heavy with factory wood and IOR 10X).So we'll see in about 10 weeks. Still torn betheen McMillan A5 and Manners T4, anybody with Tikka related suggestions?
