Re: Tikka bolt question
Look at it like this....Tikka is Buick, very nice smooth dependable car. Sako is the Buick's big brother....Cadillac.
Another rifle to look at is Weatherby. IMHO the smoothness of a Mark V action is the standard by which all other actions are judged on smoothness. The short and faster bolt lift of the Sako's and Mark V's is like the iceing on the cake.
Never pass up a kool-aid stand or lemonade stand. Remember it is a young American learning the American dream.
