Based on personal experience, get the NF with either caliber! I have a Leupold and wish I had the NF!

Re: Need some help...

Thanks for the input guys!

Right now I am leaning toward the 300wm in the Tikka with a NF NXS...still deciding on which one though. I have about $1800-$2000 to spend so I am trying to get a good rifle and a great scope. I may have to change the scope a little but, from what I have been able to find I should be able to get this set-up in that price range.

Any thoughts??

The 300 is for sure the direction I would go you have more versatility. I am a fan of Tikka but the stock ones like a lot of companies have gone to the shorter barrels , if it were me I would try to find a 26 inch barrels rifle. the rem sendaro although I don't have any experience with them many here on LRH have them and like them. I'm not sure but you might check and see if CZ make one that fits for you.They are very good guns. Then there is weatherby but these are a little pricey however the accumark is a good rifle.

I like the NF for clicks adjustment( can't beat them) but I tend towards sighting off at least in a hunting rifle, so I feel the leupold's are a better choice for me I use the B&C reticles which are great as long as you go figure out what the results are according to your actual ballistics don't use the general stuff that leupold supplies. The price is much more affordable.
Good luck
