    7mm mag Tikka ( Trade plus cash )

    Hi all.
    Might be interested in trading with cash for long range gun . Preferable 338. Not after real top end gear but the likes of savage 110 or similar.
    Someone might need to free up some cash.
    Tikka has Hardy suppressor , camo stock and shoots like Tikkas do, well.
    Let me know what you have. Cheers

    Mate you don't need a 338 to shoot long range. Really the ballistics on a 7mm mag shooting a 168gr is practically the same as a big 338 shooting a 250gr. You will just beat yourself up with it. There are a heap of people shooting 7mm Mag including me and it is a great round to shoot hits out to a mile are no problem. Just my opinion.

    You're assuming this is the OPs first rodeo regarding 338s.
    He's asking about a trade, that's why his thread is in the buy sell and swap. Although yours is valid, advice is not what's being asked for.
    Good luck with the trade.

    Thanks for the advice guys.

    I understand the balistics are very similiar and 7mm mag can be shot out past 1000 yards and i have done so.
    And as Moutere has said this is not my first time toying with 338's as I have had several 338 edges and 338 lapua's before.
    All I am doing here is keeping myself interested by getting a new toy to play with thats all.
    It's similiar to once having a Hilux then buying a Ranger - You know the Ranger is good but it ain't no Hilux ��


    Cheers.

    Hey no worries @TITAN308 didn't want you to get buyers remorse but it sounds like you know what you are doing. @Cartman mate you don't know what I shoot and yes I do shoot a 330 Dakota (33 Nosler )I am just offering some opinion and advice which of course anyone can ignore.
