    Try this link: Ozark Guns Tikka T3 Hunter at GREAT Prices!

    Scroll to the bottom - they have one listed.

    I spoke with the Tikka/Sako rep at the Shot Show and he said that you can order any caliber that Tikka makes through a dealer.

    I called Beretta USA looking for one and talked to a Rep and he told me Beretta is not importing the 6.5x55 anymore. That's just what he said. I have one in the hunter model and wouldn't mind having another.

    I specifically asked him about what calibers Beretta imports vs. what tikka/sako makes and he said that even if Beretta doesn't import a specific caliber you can still order them through a dealer. He was clearly from Finland. It might be worthwhile to call Sako directly?

    Thanks for the reply guys. I've got an email out to Ozark and plan on faxing Sako. I really wanted a stainless but that hunter is already looking better!

    Really appreciate the help and will keep you updated.

    Hankster,

    Thanks for the reply. So far I have gotten no where!! ..but still in pursuit. If you could get me a name and phone number on that T3 Hunter I'd like to talk with them. I really want a stainless but I'm looking at options as I go and that might me the one.

    I appreciate all the leads guys.

    Thanks,

    Wildcat,

    Ozark was out of them and Amy said "ain't gonna happen" I'm working on a call to Sako and will report what I find out. Also have an e mail out to Epps. Thinking a Canadien store might be able to import.

    Well just saw a video on youtube where they were testing the TC Venture in 6.5x55 and it states that it is being released sometime in 2011. Hope this true as I've always wanted a Tikka, have 3 CGs in 6.5x55.

    Got a reply from Elwood Epps Canadien store. They can order one in stainless.
    10-12 weeks shipping @$900 plus tax and shipping. I assume they are ordering direct from Finland. Doesn't seem like it would take 10-12 weeks if a Canadien distributor had one.

    Gave a call on Hankster's tip..Like new T3 Hunter w/scope sold for around $750 several weeks ago (ouch).... Thanks Hanks:)

    No rush on the ordering one so I think I'll keep looking for a better deal for a while.

    Found One!

    Big thanks to Wildcat!!

    Spotted one for sale and dropped me a line. It's a stainless Hunter walnut stock barely used for $700. I was actually looking at ordering one for @ $1000 total.

    More money for glass...

    Will be checking the boards for ammo and scope suggestions.

    Thanks to all,

    Pete
