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?
I can't speak to the A5. But, I have a T4 which is a very solid and heavy stock. There are surely better choices if you want to reduce weight.

Re: Ordered some toys for a T3 build

the MCS T4 looks pretty sweet but i seem to have lost most of my wood stocked rifles and have a bunch of fiberglass/composite sitting around so i want to get some nice wood back in the collection. that is why I chose Helmick

Re: Ordered some toys for a T3 build

If you decide you want something other than wood here's a cool chassis for the T3. I will probably build one with it myself. Cost is on par with the AICS 1.5 at $880 though.

Re: Ordered some toys for a T3 build

I am a huge fan of wood stocks, especially English walnut, but I have never had a composite and I'm pretty rough on guns. I built a .284 for a buddy on a Stiller Tac 300 in an A5 magnum fill last year and I liked it but it was a little heavy. I really wanted an A3 sporter but McMillan said no inlet for Tikka.
