Look at a TC Encore. Light weight and available in just about every popular caliber and very accurate. Buy a new barrel and use it for other stuff.

That's a great idea and peaked my interest. I hadn't thought about a new rifle until your brought that up. Since the price is very reasonable for a Tikka, I might have to try that. Thanks.

Hi Gordon,

Happy to help! If you have any more questions about Tikkas let me know. I'm kind of a Tikka nut!
