    Tikka Problem

    Well my OCD has played up again and with a xmas voucher for a new gun (can't have too many) burning a hole in my pocket i went out and picked up my 4th T3, yup cant help myself.

    Here they are

    Top one is my .284 long range rig shooting 168g Berger classic hunters wearing a Swaro 3.5-18x44 and an ASE Utra can (SL5)
    Next is my faithful 7mm08 bush/slip rig, shooting 140g Berger VLD and wearing a Luppy VX1 4-12x40 with LR reticle and a Dan Can
    New to the set is a .243 designated bush gun, soon to be shooting Sierra 100g Gameking wearing a Luppy 2-7x33 and a DPT
    Finally my .223 Kid training gun, shooting Sierra 65g Gameking wearing a Luppy 3-9x40 and a Dan Can

    Yup i hear you say that any one could have done the job of another, but why not have one of each. Maybe one day i may sell a gun and upgrade a scope but for now we are good to go.

    I have a similar problem, but Rem mod 7's as well as Tikkas now. So twice as many rifles and overlaps, but who cares you only live once eh.

    The only problem I can see is grabbing the wrong bolt for the rifle you are about to use.
    And that the stock on the bottom one isn't in my safe.

    I Have Sexdaily. I mean Dyslexia! Fcuk!

    I can swap you for a lite standard stock, just to stop that one from getting a sore arm from carrying it

    @HNTMAD what twist is the .223? Just note you are using 65 grainers.
