    You may struggle to find someone to do a re-chamber on Tikka. Most of the best gunsmiths now won't touch them as too hard on gear and many end up with machining imperfections in chamber. A lot of guys going to aftermarket barrel on a tikka action.

    I agree... you'd be better off with a rebarrel on what is a great action. I just built a 284 Winchester and put a bartlein barrel on a sako.

    I'm thinking about selling a Sako 75 in 7mm08, have not worked out a price yet, is that the sort of thing you'd be interested in?

    It’s a 30.... was thinking about it, I’d drop 2k on it, bare rifle but no more, I’ll wait and see what else comes up.
