Lefty

This rifle started out as a .300 Win Mag and lik most Tikkas it was accurate. Actually shot it in some local matches which it handily won, but after 50 rnds or so a pretty good head ache would set in.

Shaen Magan rebarred it with a Hawk Hill 6.5, 1X8 cut rifled barrel, Micro bastid brake, and epoxied the lug in. It consistently groups under .5 or smaller with full power hunting loads.

Cannot say enough good about Shanes work.

The barrel was $350, Suggest you talk with Shaen or your GS for threading and chambering
