I'm not 100% sure if you can, I think so. But the question is are you sure you wouldn't want to simply use a Shilan or a hart or something similar. I am a huge tikka fan, but with the cost of rebarreling, spending another couple hundred on a new custom might be the way to go. Especially if you have to buy another tikka barrel and have it reamered. otherwise I can see the cost savings would be significant. Good luck

oh, and welcome to Long range hunting. Lots of very knowledgeable folks eager to help . You might want to repost in the gunsmithing section since often times those who are really interested in their specialty will read those sections first.

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
