Be sure to heat the action and barrel shank/tennon to melt the sealer that tikka puts on them. Might even need a relief cut.

The handful I have seen have been very difficult. One twisted/broke the wrench. This was with factory barrels

You have to use an outside wrench first time of, inside wrenches are for new barrels, the OD wrench you can strike without doing bad things to the action, I've had them literally spin but I don't mess around when I take an action of!

I'll second what Bigngreen said.
I pulled two factory tikka barrels with a Rem 700 wrench turned over to match the flat side of the action.
I read all sorts of horror stories and was super surprised when both barrels popped loose pretty easily.
The trick is to sprinkle Rosin from Brownels on a piece of paper drywall tape and wrap it around the barrel where the vice makes contact, keeps it from slipping

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
