    Tikka T3 Hunter in venerable 6.5x55mm Swedish. The barrel is 21" without, and 23" with HighScore muzzlebreak. 1 in 8" rate of twist. Under 300 rounds. The barrel is mirror shiny. Walnut stock. Entire rifle is camo coated. Very tough coat, stays as new despite multiple hunting trips. The action is glass smooth, comes with 10 round (shown) and 3 round detachable magazines. Included DNZ Game Reaper single piece base/rings (rock solid, does not require lapping, wont leave slightest mark on a scope). The bipod and scope are not included. $650

    Few words about the accuracy and the caliber in general. Pics of most recent targets are here: (100 yards, off a bipod)

    Impressed by Tikka - 24hourcampfire

    There is no doubt in my mind the rifle is capable of better accuracy in hands of more skilled shooter than I am. The rifle feels very lightweight. Great as a walking or mountain gun. With near zero recoil, it is suitable for even very young shooter.

    If you doubt the accuracy of a Tikka rifle in this caliber a M595
    Continental Varminter in caliber 6.5 x 55 won the 1999 English
    Long Range shooting championship. Placed 10 rounds in a 4.4"
    group @1000 yards. Good Luck with your sale.
