If the only thing separating me from what I wanted was a three hour drive, Iā€™d be in the car. Good luck with your tikka.

Few can, but everyone sets up to shoot a mile šŸ˜ƒ

ArmednFree: For that money, if I were you, I would do what I do when perusing 22-250 Varmint Rifles!
And that is, look on the used market for a lightly used Remington 700 in any one of the many heavy barrel models that Remington offered over the decades last.
I have 9 (nine) of these currently, including a Remington 40XB, and each and every one of them shoots VERY well.
Best of luck to you whichever way you go - the 22-250 Remington is an outstanding cartridge.

You can't go wrong with a Tikka. The only thing I dislike about them is that single feeding is hit and miss. Savage is a love/hate affair as they definitely shoot. However, they just aren't as refined and feed/extraction isn't as solid as a Tikka. Bergara looks nice but have zero experience with.

I'm going to replace the barrel on my Savage. I hate the 14 twist barrel.

I think they only made a small run or 8 twist's. All I see now are 14's. Hopefully it will handle a 55 grain. My old Remington would handle a 55gr SP at .734' long, a 50 grain Nosler BT at .784" but not a 55 gr VMAX at .817" long. It didn't key hole, just didn't shoot well.

I just finished such a stock myself for my 40X. Got the "psychedelic" laminate. They couldn't provide a stock with the barrel channel hogged out enough so I had to do that myself, Dremel tool and barrel channel rasp worked fine. Got it bedded. Be ready to have some patience and plenty of sandpaper on hand, the outside of the stock was quite rough with deep router marks like maybe they had a dull router blade. Several coats of Truoil sanded between coats, looks great. Haven't shot it yet, weather has been to crappy.

Mine's a slow twist. It'll handle a 55gr beautifully but I've never tried larger ones to see what they'll do. I've only used it once on semi big game - an antelope. The 55 hammered it. No larger one needed for that.


Sin wouldn't be so attractive if the wages were paid immediately.

SCREW IT!!! ain't nothing available. I ordered a Remage from Criterion Barrels. Barrel, gauges, recoil lug, action wrench, nut wrench and this part that keeps the lug in place. $580. Another $80 for the action vice. Hope it goes well.

The search was on. Savage (No damned Axis) Bergara and Tikka. Nothing, sold out everywhere. Only one I could find I'd have to drive 3 hours to get.

Stopped in a shop today. The proprietor strongly recommended the Tikka T3x Varmint. I told him to get it as soon as he can. He has to call and ask.

On a list anyway, hoping Tikka is all what people here say it is. $890 gamble.
I would definitely look at the Tikka, especially stainless.



I would listen to Jimbo, all he does it look
