Well, I'm another convert here. Four years ago I bought a Savage... liked it but found it was a bit small caliber wise. So this fall I went out and bought a Tikka T3 HB stainless in 300 WSM
(another of the rifles not available in USA).
Wow... From what I can tell, Tikka did their homework on this rifle. If a person doesn't want to spend money on mods, they really don't have to. It's accurate just as it is.
Unfortunately, I don't have a 1000+ yard range where I am... but I do have an 800 yard one. Farthest I have been able to stretch it out so far was 400 with great accuracy (1.0"). Maybe some day I will get a chance to stretch it out some... but until that time, I know I have something worth keeping for a lifetime.
