Re: Total Newbie here - opinion on Tikka

Well I have shot a ton of critters with a cz 308 and before that a tikka 7mm continental hunter and I'd say you got a bang up outfit to start. Nice thing about the 308 is it is a nice round to practice and hunt with and is affordable to shoot. I don't know many guys that put 500 or more rounds through a 300 rum in a year.

    308 is a very forgiving round in that it is accurate most rifle. and tikka has an excellent reputation for accuracy. the tikka is light so it is great as a carry/hunting rifle and zeiss is a nice clear scope . get some 165 or 168 balitic tips and some varget.
