Building a SA Tikka in either 6mm Creedmoor or 6GT. I know the 6GT will feed in the AICS.

Is it a known good in the CTR mags?

AICS is single stack, CTR double stack.

Any advantages to one vs the other?

Both type mags are plentiful

I had a 6mm Creed that would feed fine out of an AICS mag. I don't know if I had a unicorn or not as my sample size was 1 gun and 2 mags.
I have a CTR 260 and it feeds great with factory mags.
I have thought about switching everything to AICS mags just to keep things simple. Pmag's are a cheaper way to fly than true AICS mags. True AICS vs CTR mags are close to the same price if you look around some.
I have not done the swap to only one type of mag just because, if it ain't broke don't fix it, kind of thinking.

I love the tikka factory mags. never had an issue. AICS mags in remington clones work fine. I just don't appreciate how they rattle unless mag is full.

Can you convert a Tikka from a magazine to an internal box magazine like my 700 SPS? I hate the idea of losing a magazine in the bush.

Never heard of anyone doing this.

Can you use a LA bolt stop? I did this with a couple of 7mm-08s so I could load 150 eldx long. I use LA mags and it works great.


Obey lawful commands. Problem solved.
