    Dont waste your time chasing every last fps, it doesnt matter in the real world, it wont make a difference, all it will do is cause head aches and frustrations. And dont listen to silly old cunts

    Ok, if no one wants to pay then no one will get it!
    And that’s fine, I’m happy to keep it.
    But if someone want a great set up, this is ready to go and will
    Save someone a lot of work.

    If someone is interested, please contact hardy and ask for a quote
    To build the same. Plus scope ,rings from USA (+gst+customs fees)+ custom turrets. And brass
    Price is way more than what I’m asking.

    Interesting, I was keen to do a cheap 28 nosler build by rechambering a t3 7RM, or fitting a match barrel to a t3 action.

    3 different gunsmiths and rifle builders advised not to build a 28 Nosler on a Tikka action as the tenon wasn't really large enough for the case diameter.

    Interesting that Hardy obviously has no issue with it.

    I ended up using a custom action.

    Very nice looking set up and the group is pretty tidy for 300 yrds over the bonnet. Good luck with sale - $8.5k is a lot of moolaa
