I can’t get a straight answer why you can’t get a Tikka t3x in a 260rem in the US.

Haven’t went that far yet. All the shops around me tell me that caliber is hard to get.

They had a decent selection of them when I bought one off Gunbroker back in May with no issues. Needless to say, that was half a year ago and things have certainly changed since. A quick glance at Gunbroker right now shows one T3X with a laminate stock available. Unsure of your budget/preference, but it's there.

Didn’t realize you couldn’t get them down there, I have one in Canada, in stainless. Using an M+ mag to allow a longer coal and vertical grip added on the factory synthetic stock. Shoots great with143 eldx with the 1:8 twist.

Yeah I think 6.5 Creemoor has just taken over and dominated that category, making .260s more rare. Kinda a shame because I have a couple .260s and I'm amazed that 6.5 Creedmoor has become so popular when the .260 was already there. I guess that's the power of marketing.

Definitely one of my most accurate and popular rifles, with myself that is. I upgraded with pillars and bedding; changed most plastics to metal and modified the throw and a magazine to get longer loads into it. Put a Nightforce NXS 2.4-10X42 on it, and now every time I leave the house to go hunt I automatically want to grab it. I found the receipt from a few years back when you could still buy a rifle for a decent amount of money. Good luck on your search and hopefully you'll love yours as I do mine.

I think Darth Varder used the Force over here and influenced some of the purchases. "You like the 6.5 Creedmoor. You will buy the 6.5Creedmoor."

Just got one. In .223 Wilde, had not been fired. Just happened upon it. No handloads, good American ammo 1/2" LC 1 1/2.
I do recommend one if you can find.
