I have a Tikka T3 Superlight Stainless with a fluted barrel 30-06. This was originally purchased at Cabelas but the Camo stock was replaced with a standard T3 black stock, which was painted to eliminate the slickness of the standard T3 stock. This is the gun and Talley Lightweight lows WITHOUT THE SCOPE. I will throw in a Limbsaver pad for the Tikka which fits perfectly. I took the aftermarket Limbsaver off to save weight, but you can put it back on if you want.
These guns are exclusive to Cabelas:http://www.cabelas.com/product/Tikka-Stainless-Steel-Camo-Rifle/1170172.uts
The gun likes Black Hills factory 155 AMAX bullets with groups averaging 0.9 inches. It also likes factory Hornady Superperformance 150gr SST with average groups of 1.2 inches. You may shoot better than that since that was done by me (grin) with the typical West Texas 15 mph wind. I never got a chance to work up hand loads.
The gun weighs 6# 1 oz, the Talleys weigh 2.2 ounces and have been lapped. The gun was purchased new in Oct 2011 and round count is less than 120.
The gun sells for $899 new plus tax when available. I would like to sell it for $775 shipped to your FFL from an individual. Regarding trades, I would like to have a Leupold VX-3 3.5-10x40 with Boone and Crockett reticle or similar. Green (cash) is my favorite color.
