Try Mac Tilton @ www.mtguns.com. Last I heard he stocked up on the Tikka 595's before the supply dried up. Good guns, but Tikka is moving from the older models to the T-3 series now, so discontinued the 595. No word if they will make a version of the T-3 for competition.
Thanks for the heads-up. I'm still in the market for one.Just on temp. hold.
"But", the wife drained some of the funds for new kitchen cabinets. I rather liked the pear boxes nailed to the walls.She was rather tight kneed about the whole thing. Next she'll want running water and indoor plumbing.
When will the demands ever end?
"That dam barn door is further away than it looks".

I wanna get in to factory rifle competition and eventualy get myself nice custom rifle with super heavy bbl.
Can you guys tell me more about .223Rem.
I have always shoot big cartridge, and have no experience with smaller ones.
Is the twist 1-12" good enough to suport bullets upto 60-grain or rather 55-grain?
What powders are good to start? H322, H335, Benchmark, AA2015 ??? [img]images/icons/confused.gif[/img]
The 1-12" in may stabilize the 60gr, it may not. At one point in time I was able to stabilize 64gr Bergers out of a 1-14" twist, but that was from a .220 Swift. A lot of velocity can sometimes help make up a little for the twist rate being too slow. Not enough to bank on regularly, though.
Try a box of 60's, but I think you'll find a wider selection of better bullets around the 50-55gr weights.
