Disappointed at how heavy and loud the Saftey is on the EW. So much so I traded it for a Ruger. I’ve owned Tikkas and EW’s and A7’s.... If I was going after Grizz I’d opt for a EW in 30-06 with 6 shots ready to go over a Tikka any day of the week. I shoot the heavier EW better offhand.”

Same. I had a BACO Winchester Featherweight and was simply appalled how loud the safety was. I have a T3X in 308 and like it. Not crazy about the looks, plastic stock and safety. Got a good deal on it though. If I had to do it over again, I wait and try to find a Sako A7, which happened of course, but at that point I didn’t want to have to sell the Tikka after I used it.

The "Extreme weather" was never made by New Haven, so to answer your question, it has to be "current"....

I'd bet dollars to donuts that the Tikka is going to be far more accurate out of the box than the Winchester. Can you make a winchester accurate? Hell yes, but it takes a little to get it on par with the Tikka in the accuracy department. Savage is another one that will, often times, be far more accurate than a Winchester model 70 right out of the box. This is coming from a Winchester model 70 lover too. For current production rifles, I'd be looking at the Ruger m77 Hawkeye all weather rifle as well. At least those are still being made here in the States, if that is of any concern wink....

I've never owned a Tikka, but my SIL bought a T3Lite (I think it is?) in 7mm Mag one year just to pack down in this awful canyon. He got his Bull too. I shot it with him at the range and it was indeed accurate, and very light. If you want lightweight and accurate, go Tikka. If a man wants to have a bit heftier rifle, and fool around with it, then a Mod 70. The Tikka, for me, feels OK but has a lot of plastic, it just doesn't "feel sturdy" to me. I'm sure they are like everything else, but they are "different". I also don't care for the looks of the action and the magazine protruding out the bottom. Another reason I never liked the early Browning BLRs, the magazine sticking out. I packed an M16 long enough ( and I have a Bushmaster Predator for coyotes) I don't like them for sport hunting, bugs me. I like "slim and trim" in my hands...but that's just me. smile

The tikka is "slim and trim" in ones hands. The magazine doesn't protrude out from the bottom of the rifle either, unless you buy a higher capacity magazine. I love model 70's as well, but in some instances the superlite is better, and vise versa. Now, just last year I was comparing 2 rifles side by side and those were both stainless. One being a nice model 70 classic stainless sporter chambered in 7WSM, the other was a Tikka t3x superlite 7mm rem magnum. After shooting them side by side, I decided to get rid of the Tikka, in favor of the model 70. This decision was based on felt recoil and design preference. Now I have a T3x chambered in 6.5 creedmoor and you couldn't get me to sell that rifle. I didn't see what chambering the OP wants, but if it's anything bigger than 7mm rem mag, I'd pass on the Tikka. I'd probably pass on the EW too and find a good old classic stainless with the better trigger...

Sure it does, even the standard capacity. It doesn’t stick out much, but it’s not flush.

Sure it does, but not very much at all:

When I carry my Tikka in the field, I'm not carring it right under the mag box either. That's not where it balances. Your hand barley touches the mag when carrying in the field....

I own the tikka t3 stainless lite in 3006. I also have the blued version of an EW that Winchester sold as the extreme sporter in 300 wsm. Very different guns, hard to compare, both well built. The tikka is push feed, no bedding, independent recoil flange......Winchester has a full alum bedded B&C stock, control round feed.....l like them both. By the way, I also have a ruger Hawkeye 3006 and have compared the grip of the CRF to that of the winchester....the winny is much, much stronger, at least in my case.

I have both and yes the FW barrel is thinner

BSA,
I agree on looking at the Ruger, but they quit making the All-Weather a few years ago. (Much to my disdain)

You'd do well to polish up your noisy assed approach,because the decibels are alike.

Boggles my mind that Winchester announced the extreme weather in 6.5 creed as a 2018 SHOT show special and they STILL haven’t hit dealer shelves. Either they are going for a record, or waiting to see if the chambering will catch on.

I waited a long time for that very rifle after the announcement. Got tired of the wait and ended up buying an EW in 7mm08 instead of the Creed. No regrets at this point.

Lighten up on Winchester guys, an obscure chambering like the Creedmoor takes time for research, development, sourcing reamers.....

Remmy did the same, remember the SPS 260

Then there is Barrett and the 223 FC

Doesn't matter what caliber it is. That's how they roll. I ordered a M70 Fwt a few years back that took 14 months to get here. And it wasn't even that impressive.
