    Tikka action

    I'm looking for either a Tikka action with bolt or a cheap complete rifle.

    Now I know there will be a lot saying why but I'm thinking of either another 25/08 or a 25 Creedmore using the 131grn pills from blackjack.

    Quite an incredible little bullet that.
    Perhaps 25 Creedmoor will take over 6mm CM and 6.5mm CM if high BC 25cal bullets became more common.

    Yea they sure are. I haven't had a 25 for a few years but I'm thinking of going that way again.
