    F/S Tikka T3 6.5 SAUM

    Not sure if i want to but will put the feelers out.

    Tikka T3 6.5 SAUM Walnut stock
    Fluted bolt
    Fluted barrel
    Work done by scott trail
    have dies and brass
    also a brand new unopened 50x count 300SAUM brass

    Bought this as a spir of the moment kind of thing it had load development done for it.
    140 sierras going 2900fps
    so i sighted in and then shot out to 400 yards and was working great.
    I haven't done any load development for this but the load it had worked great.

    Scope and rings not included

    thinking $2000

    It probably was a 260 but, take the barrelled action out of the stock then you will see if there is any factory writing on it, unless it was removed by the fluting ?

    IIRC it isn't a factory barrel ?

    That speed of 2900 for the 140 seems conservative. Is it?

    For the bang, blast and fuss, I thought you would get a bit more over the modern 6.5x55?

    It's a nice rifle and I like the concept.

    Yea as stated I haven't done any load data for this rifle, bought it with a few loaded (140 sierras) and I just zeroed it and chroneyed the loads the shot a couple of deer and it has just sat in the safe since.
    I was going to run the130 bergers
    And I'm sure the speeds could be ramped up

    Saw this on TM a while ago. One of my favourite 'fantasy' wildcats - I just think Rem keep dropping the ball on their standard products. Pity you're hanging onto the scope, I'd be seriously interested in it, as a starter LR target rig.

    Has this got a long mag? Can you seat the projectiles out enough? What sort of weight do you think it would be without the scope?
