Re: What about Tikka\'s??
Well........ I have one now, it started out in Life as a 595 in .243; but has been breathed on and is now rebarreled in .260 with a 26" Shilen Barrel, #4 profiled to match the original action, McMillan stock, Trigger worked on only, as the standard trigger is ok for normal hunting.
I am not a long range in USA terms shot, as the opportunities are relatively few and far between in the UK.
However it shoots 1/2 MOA with 100Gn Nosler BTs over Fed GM210 primers, 44 Gn Vit 160. Lapua 243 Brass resized to .260 and neck turned.
There is a pic of it on the site today if youre interested under the McMillan stocks topic in Equipment.
Probably not everyones choice, but in .260 it is adequate for everything except Boar in UK......... and it is still a Tikka and it works for me [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
