    got my new .300 win. tika today and boy can it shoot best groups were from 165g nosler bal.tips with IMR 4350@72.0gr 3 shots in a
    0.656 at 100yd and 165gr sierra game kings
    with same powder and charge wt. but 3 shot
    group was 0.369 [​IMG] [​IMG] and this is a brand new gun and first load with out molly or bullet seating depth tweaking. I have always
    been under the impresion that the guns best accuracy would only become aparent after many
    shots have been fired ....well what do you all think about it ?? thanks

    Pretty darn good! I have a Tikka that I rechambered to 7mm Dakota. It's always shot pretty well.

    Jonathan,

    Congrats on the small group.

    Since you don't like the Rem 700 LA you may as well sell it to me for $50. It's junk anyhow, may as well get something out of it [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I am looking to have a 416 built, may as well have it built around that junk Rem 700 action you hate [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Jonathan,

    And I thought I was going to get an action cheap, lol.

    I guess we that live state side don't always appreciate it. I ship guns and parts all over via UPS and never have any problems. Being from a different country must be a pain.

    I had 3 rifles built around the Rem 700 action. My other 2 actions are Stolle Panda.

    Just curious, how far are you from Niagara Falls?
